To better understand how writing and speaking are used in the various majors, I have talked
with Chairs; visited classes, observing speeches and presentations; and solicited and read
written work from across the campus. Initial concerns/apprehension about WI and SI courses
that I encountered have diminished, as faculty have seen, I believe, that CAC wants to help
departments to identify and develop relevant, discipline-specific courses (rather than forcing
them to teach generic, and ineffective, writing and speaking exercises)....
