The writing, rhetoric, And digital studies department
(formerly the University Writing Program) strives to support our students with the transfer of writing practice and knowledge from their introductory writing course, through their General Education curriculum, and into their majors. This focus on Teaching for Transfer helps us to be intentional in assigning reading and writing assignments that help students know how to apply what they practice in our writing courses long after they leave our classes.
Embedded in the work is critical reflection, where students write before, during and after the assignment they are creating in order to practice talking about their writing and gaining greater understanding about how they communicate as writers.
