Writing Intensive

SLCC does not currently have a Writing Intensive designation for non-composition courses. The AAC&U’s definition for this high impact practice is as follows, “These courses emphasize writing at all levels of instruction and across the curriculum, including final-year projects. Students are encouraged to produce and revise various forms of writing for different audiences in different disciplines. The effectiveness of this repeated practice “across the curriculum” has led to parallel efforts in such areas as quantitative reasoning, oral communication, information literacy, and, on some campuses, ethical inquiry.”
