Implementing WAC in a Psychology Class

WAC stands for “Writing Across the Curriculum.” It is a program or movement that concerns effective writing in all disciplines and classes in universities. A few years ago I took a WAC workshop at Kennesaw State University and learned about several writing issues from different theoretical approaches, for example, the distinction between writing to learn and writing to communicate, as well as several useful techniques to help students improve their writing. In this poster I will discuss how I used WAC guided writing assignments in a psychology class and will also present students’ evaluations of these writing assignments.
