Summary
"A guided approach to using college writing for everyone's learningFaculty 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"--
