Overview

Writing to Teach; Writing to Learn in Higher Education is a comprehensive guide for professors seeking to integrate writing-across-the-curriculum principles into their pedagogy. Through the exploration of theory and practice, treating both pre-writing techniques and classical rhetorical patterns as heuristics, Leist outlines the process of incorporating writing into a curriculum. Major concerns of professors in all disciplines about writing intensive courses and the assignment and evaluation of writing are addressed; and practical advice for implementing a new curriculum is offered. This advice includes examples of how to construct writing assignments, details on how to articulate expectations, and methods for evaluating results. The text includes appendices with sample checklists, a master scoring rubric, and examples of syllabi and individual assignments. From beginning to end, Writing to Teach; Writing to Learn in Higher Education helps prepare professors to use writing as an intrinsic part of their curriculum.
