Resources for Faculty Teaching an FYS

“Professors who successfully integrate writing and critical thinking tasks into their courses often report a satisfying increase in their teaching pleasure:  class discussions are richer, students are more fully engaged in their learning, and the quality of their performance improves. But the use of writing and critical thinking activities to promote learning does not happen through serendipity.”

– John Bean, Professor of English and Consulting Professor of Writing and Assessment at Seattle University, and author of Engaging Ideas:  The Professor’s Guide to Integrating Writing, Critical Thinking and Active Learning in the Classroom

The Writing Program website is here to provide resources for all faculty:  those who teach writing instruction courses in the program, those who teach writing intensive courses in any discipline, and those who just want to learn some new ways to use writing in their classes. Please contact me at ext. 2284 if you have questions or would like to schedule an individual meeting to talk about writing in your courses.
