WIC - Writing Intensive Classes
Writing Intensive Classes (WIC) offer students an opportunity to engage deeply in course materials. Students learn the processes by which writers in the field develop and disseminate knowledge.
Writing Intensive Classes are offered throughout the university in various departments. The courses are varied but share these core characteristics:
- Amount of writing: All WIC require approximately 5000 words. 3000 words are dedicated to drafts, non-graded writing, and informal papers. 2000 words are final drafts, which students rewrite after receving feedback for revision.
- Activities emphasizing writing: All WIC emphasize writing as a process, which is integrated into the structure of the entire course. Students engage in writing to learn, and writing to communicate. In-class activities may include short, ungraded in-class writing, brainstorming, freewriting, and peer response groups. Other topics that are covered include appropriate citation, global revision strategies, and editing.
