BILLONES,DEXTER C. 3/6/2018 BSA 1-2 Prof. Ms. Eleonor Rabanillo Why do we need to take writing in the discipline? (Related to accounting) Writing in the Disciplines connotes an approach to rhetoric and composition that emphasizes the different disciplines in which specific genres or "kinds" of writing occur. It is related to Writing across the Curriculum (WAC) pedagogies, and is one of many ways to approach writing in a university context. It is not a singular or inflexible model, nor is it a process-based or expressive model (though it incorporates elements of these approaches to composition instruction); rather, it is an inclusive and multivocal approach that emphasizes the countless ways that writing, as Janet Giltrow reminds us, is webbed to social situations. Because the students have to know the difference disciplines that suits to them to be able to learn writing more fluent. As Susan McLeod notes, in its efforts to change the way rhetoric and composition were taught on college and university campuses, “WAC has been, more than any other recent educational reform, one aimed at transforming pedagogy at the college level .... WAC draws on many pedagogical techniques used in general composition classes, but unlike those classes (for example, Freshmen Composition) it focuses around a particular body of information. Where freshmen composition might focus on teaching the general features of what we term ‘academic discourse,’ WAC focuses not on writing skills per se but on teaching both the content of the discipline and the particular discourse features used in writing about that content.” It because the students must need to practice basic about structure and sentences to be able to perform other level of writing discipline. Writing in the Disciplines instruction helps students to develop rhetorical skills in the kinds of reading and writing that they will do in their scholarly and professional lives. Writing in Discipline pedagogies work to demystify the writing process and to contextualize textual practice, particularly within the genres significant to the modern research university where knowledge-making and knowledge-sharing are central activities.

Writing in Discipline thus encourages students to participate in the disciplines that interest them and in the genres of writing that are found in those disciplines. Writing in Discipline instructors such as the ones in the Academic Writing Program work to help students recognize that writing has social consequences for artists, for accountants, for scientists, or for CEOs. It will truly become helpful to the future, mostly in the with the literate jobs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
