Syllabus Information

Bookmark and Share

The WAC-Advisory Committee has composed these syllabus statements for WI faculty members to use in the syllabi they create for their WI courses.  Our goal is to make clear to our students that the WI course is not a composition course nor is it a course that "just requires a lot of writing" as they often believe.  Please use the appropriate statement in your syllabus but feel free to modify it as you wish to better fit the flow of your syllabus.  

 

1. Syllabus Statement for a WI course in your major:

This is a writing intensive (WI) course (for the _blank_ major) which helps our students satisfy the WI graduation requirement in this major. In addition, it helps students achieve Number 20 of the SAU General Education Outcomes: "To effectively communicate in writing and evaluate the effectiveness of a piece of written communication." WI in the major helps the student engage more fully with the course content. Additionally, the recursive nature of the writing, with both peer and instructor response, helps the student writer recognize how to write for a wider audience as a professional in the field. WI courses balance the quantity of writing with attention to the continual process of writing to enhance student learning.
