Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) and Writing in Political Science: Resources for Students and Faculty
In the 2014-15 academic year, I was a Writing Across the Curriculum Fellow at Hunter College, CUNY, working in the Political Science Department and the Reading/Writing Center. My work entailed faculty pedagogical development, implementing Writing Across the Curriculum principles in Political Science courses, leading reading and writing workshops for Political Science students, and providing one-on-one writing tutoring. In the course of this work, I developed the following resources.
Handouts for students: Critical Reading and Note-TakingWriting Essay ExamsMaking Arguments and Using SourcesResearch in Political ScienceCitation Resources; Term Papers and Making Arguments
