Ways to Teach Reluctant Writers in Any College Course

A guided approach to using college writing for everyone's
learning

Faculty in every discipline are increasingly pressured to
include major writing components as part of their courses.
Unfortunately, as author and English professor Gary R. Hafer
explains, college and university educators often have little
training in the use of writing in the classroom. Embracing
Writing
elucidates the principles of academic writing and shows
instructors how to integrate writing with course content, blending
them to enhance and deepen the higher education learning
process.


Scholarly writing is a central part of the academic experience
and, when used effectively, can be an outstanding pedagogical tool.
The creative approach in Embracing Writing will have you
looking at writing in a whole new way. Not only will your students
appreciate the honest, nurturing, and fun writing
assignments, but your own writing will improve as well. This is not
a rulebook for writers, but a guided approach to viewing writing
and content as one indivisible whole. Embracing Writing will
help you:



  • Engage students in writing assignments that actually help them
    develop their writing ability

  • Understand what makes good collegiate writing and how it can
    aid in content discovery

  • Discover new pathways for your own writing so writing for
    publication and the classroom is enjoyable again

  • Develop a writing pedagogy that doesn't detract from core
    course content delivery


There often is a disconnect between administrative demands for
in-course writing and the inadequate training resources available
to faculty members. Because most of us aren't trained as writers,
we need a meaningful way to connect writing to our areas of
expertise. Embracing Writing provides that connection.
