Croft, James; Benjamin, Michael; Conn, Phyllis; Serafin, Joseph M.; Wiseheart, Rebecca – Across the Disciplines, 2019

Baird, Neil; Dilger, Bradley – Across the Disciplines, 2018
Writing transfer scholarship is more systematically investigating the influence of dispositions, which are internal qualities that influence how individuals react to learning contexts.

Driscoll, Dana Lynn; Jin, Daewoo – Across the Disciplines, 2018
This article draws upon Bergmann and Zepernick's (2007) metaphor of the box under the bed to investigate the relationship between students' epistemologies and their learning transfer in diverse contexts over undergraduate years. We present a systemic analysis of 13 students' interviews and writing samples over a five-year period, through which we…

Hendricks, C. C. – Across the Disciplines, 2018
In moves to fortify the discipline and articulate its value, does writing studies risk perpetuating narrow views of disciplinarity and academic writing? Drawing from an analysis of the intersections between WAC/WID [Writing Across the Curriculum/Writing in the Disciplines] and transfer scholarship in popular rhetoric and composition journals, I…

Mao, LuMing – Across the Disciplines, 2018
Difference or facts of nonusage present a challenge to teacher-scholars of writing and rhetoric in WAC/WID and beyond. How can they appropriately engage different language and rhetorical practices in the classroom and relations of power asymmetry in discursive engagements? How can they effectively address issues of disciplinarity and challenge…

Donahue, Christiane – Across the Disciplines, 2018
What is the relationship, in US writing studies, between scholarship about writing and scholarship about language? What should it be?

Kester, Jessica; Block, Rebecca; Karda, Margaret Reinfeld; Orndoff, Harold, III – Across the Disciplines, 2016
Today, and historically, the presence of WAC/WID programs in the community college setting remains anemic when compared to Ph.D.-granting institutions. This fact is particularly troubling considering the AAC&U's research on high-impact practices and its correlation with WAC/WID theory and practice. This article empirically investigates the…

Elder, Cristyn L.; Champine, Karen – Across the Disciplines, 2016
The body of literature on a Writing-to-Learn (WTL) approach in math courses offers up a variety of assignment types from which to choose. However, few of these articles provide empirical evidence on the ways these writing assignments contribute to students' learning. This mixed-methods study, conducted at the University of New Mexico, a…

Carillo, Ellen C. – Across the Disciplines, 2016
This essay argues that what might otherwise be considered "plagiarism" in student writing is a symptom of the difficulties students encounter in their reading and writing, moments in which students' inabilities to critically assess, read, and respond to sources through the act of writing come to the surface. Expanding the context within…

Graduate teaching assistants (TAs) and the general education yet discipline-specific courses they often teach occupy a complex peripheral position in the university.

Reid, Gwendolynne; Snead, Robin; Pettiway, Keon; Simoneaux, Brent – Across the Disciplines, 2016
While a strong case has been made for addressing multimodality in composition, the case has been less clear for WAC/WID and CxC programs and research. Studies of disciplinary communication have documented the use of multiple modes in a number of fields, but few engage directly with theories of multimodality or with multimodality in context of…

Busl, Gretchen; Donnelly, Kara Lee; Capdevielle, Matthew – Across the Disciplines, 2015
In the past ten years, an increasing number of universities have begun organizing writing "camps," or full-week immersion experiences, in an effort to address the increased need to support graduate student writing. Outside of anecdotes and testimonials, we have previously had very little data about these camps' success. This study,…
