SHSU WID Program

The Writing in the Disciplines program assists faculty in finding ways to incorporate writing to learn and writing as a process and product, so that students can develop the critical thinking and writing skills necessary as literate citizens.  To these ends, the program provides training and resources to faculty, recognizes student and faculty achievement, develops and monitors standards, and publishes guidelines for successful “W” classes.  The Writing in the Disciplines program believes that writing in disciplinary contexts strengthens students’ learning, critical thinking, and communication skills, which in turn creates confident, productive, and lifelong writers.
