Teaching Writing in the Disciplines

A foundational principle of teaching writing in the disciplines is that content knowledge, disciplinary conventions, and writing all work together when students develop and communicate their ideas. Writing becomes a way to learn the information students study in different classes, and the content and skills learned in different disciplines affect the way students write. At Spring Hill College, students are required to pass four courses in English (including the composition sequence and two 200-level English classes), as well as at least three other writing intensive courses, one of which must be in the student’s major. The number of writing-intensive courses offered across the curriculum each semester attests to the faculty’s commitment to and involvement in teaching students to write throughout their undergraduate studies.
