"It's a Shame to Put Such Wonderful Thoughts in Such Poor Language": A Chemist's Perspective on Writing in the Discipline
Stout, Roland P.
Across the Disciplines, v8 n1 Jun 2011
Starting from the premise that good writing requires sound thinking, this paper presents a workable process for developing and using writing assignments as thinking and learning tools within a historical and philosophical context. Though presented from the perspective of a chemist, this process is actually general in nature and links writing assignments with specific learning objectives and evaluation methods. Writing assignment examples, used for a variety of purposes, draw from freshman through graduate courses in chemistry.
