Overview

Writing should be the business of the entire school community. This was the principle behind Michigan Tech's influential writing-across-the-curriculum program, which from 1977 to 1984 involved 250 faculty from virtually every discipline in fourteen intensive writing workshops.

What have been its measurable effects on both faculty and students? What are the implications for other teaching communities?

Young and Fulwiler bring together eighteen essays from participants and program staff that address these questions from different perspectives and with a variety of evaluative techniques.
