Writing-Intensive: Becoming W-Faculty in a New Writing Curriculum. Wendy Strachan documents this campus cultural transformation, exploring successes and impasses with equal interest. The study identifies factors to be considered to avoid isolating the teaching of writing in writing-intensive courses; to engender a university-wide culture that naturalizes writing as a vital part of learning across all disciplines; and to keep the teaching of writing organic and reflected upon in a scholarly manner across campus. A valuable case history for scholars in writing studies, WAC/WID, and curricular change studies.

The title of this monograph,Writing-Intensive: Becoming W-Faculty in a New Writing Curriculumpoints to what is clearly not a modest undertaking. We were latecomers, like most others in Canada, to the institutionalizing of writing at our university. But we gave serious attention to the reports of colleagues in other institutions, mainly American, which made it clear what would be involved if we also became serious about investing in student writers

Writing across the curriculum (WAC) is a movement within contemporary composition studies that concerns itself with writing in classes outside of composition, literature, and other English courses. According to a comprehensive survey performed in 2006–2007, approximately half of American institutes of higher learning have something that can be identified as a WAC program.

Writing Intensive: Becoming W-Faculty in a New Writing Curriculum lives up to its claim. It is indeed one of the few book length studies of major post writing across the curriculum initiative from concept to implementation (Book jacket). The Concept: In 2002, the Vice President at Simon Fraser University appointed a committee to evaluate the undergraduate.

In one of the few book-length studies of a major post-secondary writing-across-the-curriculum initiative from concept to implementation, Writing-Intensive traces the process of preparation for new writing requirements across the undergraduate curriculum at Simon Fraser University, a mid-sized Canadian research university. As faculty members across campus were selected to pilot writing-intensive courses, and as administrators and committees adjusted the process toward full implementation, planners grounded their pedagogy in genre theory—a new approach for many non-composition faculty. So doing, the initiative aimed to establish a coherent yet rhetorically flexible framework through which students might improve their writing in all disciplines.Wendy Strachan documents this campus cultural transformation, exploring successes and impasses with equal interest.
