PRINCIPLES

WAC approaches are based on cognitive principles of active learning that apply to all disciplines:
1. Writing and learning are inextricably linked; writing helps students learn a discipline.
2. Writing is different in different disciplines and contexts.
3. Teachers should help guide the writing process, not merely judge the writing product.
4. Writing is learned through reading and participating in a community, not merely through lectures, rules and drills.
5. WAC means re-conception of teacher/learner functions; it is not merely additive.
