Conversations among Teachers on Student Writing: WAC/Secondary Education Partnerships at BSU
Cox, Michelle; Gimbel, Phyllis
Across the Disciplines, v9 n3 Dec 2012
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) create new common ground for high school-college collaborations through emphasis on expository writing in English language arts (ELA) and writing in content areas across the curriculum. This article, written collaboratively by a composition-rhetoric scholar and a secondary education leadership scholar who together directed Bridgewater State University's WAC program, further explores the CCSS in relation to WAC, discusses why WAC programs in higher education should seek to create venues for conversation among secondary teachers and college faculty, and shares several programs facilitated by the WAC program at Bridgewater State University that seek to open and sustain such conversations.
