Peer Response to Low Stakes Writing in a WAC Literature Classroom.
Sargent, M. Elizabeth
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n69 p41-52 Spr 1997
College courses which use writing across the curriculum (WAC) principles encourage students to write about assigned readings and to respond to each other's writings, resulting in better learning of course concepts and the experience of participating in a discipline's ongoing conversation. Guidelines for setting up peer response groups in both large lower-division and small upper-division courses are offered. (MSE)
