Making Writing Visible in the Disciplines

featuring Dr. Joseph Harris, Duke University

Date: Friday, November 9, 2012
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Building: Goldring/Woldenberg Hall I in Room 101
Location: uptown campus

Writing in the disciplines (WID) is not to re-teach basic skills or grammar but to help students use writing to learn how members of a field think and work. To do so, WID courses ask students to take on the role of apprentices in the fields they are studying. This involves making writing visible in two ways: (1) Showing students the kinds of writing – articles, reports, proposals, etc. – that members of their fields actually do; and (2) Taking time in class to talk about the writing that students are themselves doing in the course. Making the writing of professionals visible changes what gets taught in a course; making the writing of students visible changes how it gets taught.
