Abstract

This article describes the design, implementation, evaluation, and outcomes of a replicable writing across the curriculum experiment employing writing in a composition, history, and environmental science course package offered to a group of fifty developmental writers enrolled in the open admissions college of the University of Minnesota. The project presented analogical and incrementally demanding writing tasks supported within a cross-disciplinary environment which emphasized writing as learning strategy related to critical thinking and grasp of discipline content. Apparent outcomes for the basic writers who participated were improved writing performance, improved subsequent academic performance, and increased persistence throughout a three quarter follow-up.
