"Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go." ~ E.L. Doctorow
|Traditional vs. Writing-Intensive
What makes a Writing-Intensive class
different from a traditional one? According to Professor Thomas
Hilgers, former director of the Manoa Writing Program:
"[Writing-intensive courses] use writing as frequently
as possible to help students...learn the content of the course. In a
class, students are often asked to read, think, discuss, and then write
or take an exam, pretty much in that order. In a writing-intensive
professors ask students to write, read, write as they read, write as
think, write before they discuss, write after they discuss, and then
and discuss even more in order to write again."
