Writing Across the Curriculum
2420 Boylan Hall
The Writing Fellows of the Brooklyn College Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program have developed a variety of tools and strategies for faculty and students to employ writing as a tool to develop writing skills, and to improve critical and creative thinking.
If you are a full- or part-time member of the Brooklyn College faculty, you can contact us if you are interested in a one-on-one appointment with a Writing Fellow for help developing syllabi or individual writing assignments. You can access plans for a variety of mini-lessons on writing-related issues that you can use in your classroom. In addition, we have many informational resources to help you further investigate how you use writing in your classes, including a "Digital Writing Toolkit," which provides ideas for moving writing assignments online. Moreover, there are a series of four brown-bag workshops being held throughout the course of the spring semester. Check them out, and be sure to RSVP, as space is limited. Lastly, we have developed a rubric we have called the Writing Benchmarks, which we hope will assist you in identifying specific writing skill areas on which you would like students to focus in your courses.
If you are a Brooklyn College student, we have a list of on-campus resources to help you improve your writing and address other academic needs, including our "WAC Toolkit." To help you chart your development as a writer, make sure to investigate our Writing Benchmarks, which can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and locate areas to develop.
