The faculty and staff at Guttman Community College are committed to creating courses and assignments in the core curriculum and all programs of study that consistently engage students in diverse writing tasks. With Peter Elbow, we believe that writing can be a powerful learning tool if it is used consistently and intentionally in courses across the disciplines, rather than merely a means for demonstrating learning. With Mina Shaughnessy, we believe frequent and structured writing activities are essential for students who begin college underprepared for college-level work.
The materials here are borrowed from the Writing Across the Curriculum Resource Center on the CUNY Academic Commons and WAC websites at CUNY and other colleges. Over time, the collection will grow through contributions from faculty, graduate coordinators, and writing fellows.
