What is Writing in the Disciplines?

Glossary

CAC: Communication Across the Curriculum. This term is newer and broader than WAC and refers to the use of communication in the classroom, including but not limited to writing.

Grading Rubric (or Assessment Rubric or Design Rubric or Grading Sheet): A list or chart of the characteristics and expectations of a well done assignment.

Journaling: Keeping a journal. Journals may be formal or informal, and may be graded or not. Most are used to promote dialog between the instructor and the student.

WAC: Writing Across the Curriculum. The WAC movement started as an effort to promote writing to learn basic content, but it has evolved into an effort to use writing in a significant way to teach and learn in any discipline at any educational level.

WID: Writing in the Disciplines. Some prefer WID to WAC because it emphasizes learning to write for/in specific disciplines. Many reserve it for discussion of WAC in which students are using writing not to learn basic content but to develop their voices as disciplinary members, usually in upper-level courses.

Writing to Learn: The use of writing to comprehend subject matter in fields other than writing.
