Description by Internet Scout Project
"The impetus for the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) initiative at George Mason University was part of a national media discussion in 1977 about a "literary crisis" in the United States. Three decades later, the WAC continues to thrive, and its website is full of resources for people who teach college English courses and related subjects. The mission of the WAC is to focus on writing as "a pedagogical tool that enables students to develop critical, analytical, and imaginative thinking to address complex social issues."
"On the Program Info page, visitors can learn more about the structure of the WAC and how it operates. Moving on, the Faculty Resources section contains sections such as Teaching With Writing, Guides in the Disciplines, Writing Center Resources, and so on. The Teaching with Writing area has great resources such as handouts titled "Writing to Learn," "Creating Clear Assignments," and "Evaluating and Grading." Further along is the Guides in the Disciplines section, which features writing guides for different subjects crafted by people at George Mason, along with national writing guides from Carleton College, Colorado State University, and Columbia College."
