It's Not "Just the Facts, Ma'am": Writing for Success in Career Education
Converse, Caren Wakerman
Across the Disciplines, v9 n3 Dec 2012
Writing across the secondary curriculum has been viewed primarily through the lens of traditional academic courses taught in comprehensive high schools. In this paper the author draws on her past experience as a criminal justice teacher at a career and technical high school to describe writing that facilitates and demonstrates learning of subject matter, but also facilitates and demonstrates learning to do and to be. Because CTE students are immersed in a field of their own choosing, the writing they do is more than an add-on; it is accepted as an integral part of what they want to do and the professional they strive to become.
