Chapter 9: Writing Across The Curriculum

Decent Essays
In chapter 9, Writing Across the Curriculum, the process of reading and writing was investigated and explained in comparison to one another. The reading-writing connection focuses on drawing from students’ prior knowledge and cognitive processes in order to build learning. The authors mentioned that the writing process is a strong tool for exploring and clarifying meaning and the two major instructional components used are writing to learn (WTL) and writing in disciplines (WID). The chapter also focused on the subareas of academic journals and writing disciplines.
While I was reading the overview for chapter 9, the words “academic journals” struck out at me because I have been familiar with academic journals since I was a senior in high school.
