Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)

The Writing Across the Curriculum movement (WAC) is a subfield of writing studies and composition studies that asserts students acquire proficiency in writing through instruction and practice in a variety of courses and fields. The writing-to-learn approach to WAC also suggests that through writing students can learn to retain and think critically about key principles and concepts in the disciplines. As Chris Anson states, “writing belongs in all courses in every discipline” (ix). It is closely affiliated with the Writing in the Disciplines movement (WID) and the fields are sometimes referred to by use of the acronym WID/WAC.
