Individualizing Writing Instruction in T he Humanities

The departments of history, sociology, political science, art, drama, and music at ETSU in cooperation with the Communication Skills Center will develop humanities courses which will stress the writing process as an integral component of humanities instruction. Project will offer a workshop, covering a five-week period, for selected members of these departments and will stress the teaching of writing as a process, one which supports the material being presented in normal instruction. Program will attempt to: (l) improve writing skills of advanced students in the humanities; (2) provide individualized instruction in the writing process; (3) instruct the humanities faculty in how to teach writing in their disciplines: and (4) more effectively use existing tools.
