We Must All Teach Writing.
Lory, Alice; And Others
This paper discusses summer seminars on teaching writing that members of the Applied Writing Program at Ithaca College offered to their colleagues in other disciplines. These seminars grew out of the conviction that every teacher who assigns papers is, to some degree, teaching writing, and many of those teachers, unsure of the limits of their responsibility, encounter difficulties in evaluating student writing. The syllabus for each seminar included these major headings: an introductory unit, an unstructured discussion of student papers (submitted earlier by faculty participants), a getting-the-student-started unit, a unit on organizing papers, a unit on the source paper (one that uses library research), a marking and commenting unit, a round-up session, and a discussion evaluating the seminar. Some individual comments from seminar participants are included. (Author/RL)
