WRITING ASSISTANTS AND OTHER WAC MODELS

The following are some of the models and options pursued in colleges and universities. Often schools combine more than one.
1. Writing Assistants who take a training course and work with students and assist professors.
2. Writing -intensive courses in core and/or major.
3. First-year composition course clustered or linked with one in another discipline.
4. Faculty retreat of one-two days.
5. Six- to eight-session faculty seminar, during one semester. Faculty receive released time and/or stipends for attending and working on developing assignments and syllabi. (This model was used in the past at PNY and WP with Charlotte Rotkin and Phyllis Edelson as faculty directors.)
6. Periodic faculty workshops, consultations, and informal meetings with campus director of WAC and interested faculty.
7. Outside WAC consultants invited to speak to faculty and lead workshops.
8. Booklets developed for students in different disciplines about writing expectations and guidelines.
9. Faculty newsletters; WAC Website; online discussion groups.
