Write To Learn:

The goal of the writing focus in the W and P courses is to enable writing-to-learn to happen. There are options for writing-to-learn in W/P classes; some of these strategies may include, but are not limited to, the following proven methods of increasing students' analytical and subject area skills.

Rationale: Clarifying the description of W and P label courses provides more flexibility for faculty and encourages a greater range of student writing involvements. Currently, there are no tracking of writing-to-learn objectives in W courses. These suggestions are being made to assist faculty in developing and teaching writing-to-learn curricula. Class sizes need to be kept sufficiently small to effect these pedagogies.
