Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)


Kapi'olani CC and Windward CC will be sponsoring the 25th Community College Writing-Across-the-Curriculum Institute + [Plus]. It will run for two weeks (11 days) from May 21 to June 5 at WCC. It is an intense workshop that meets daily from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm. The "+" indicates that writing as a way of learning includes an emphasis on critical and creative thinking. Classroom assessment techniques are integrated into the WAC+ Institute.


The WAC+ Summer Institute will assist college teachers in all programs and subject areas in:

  • Using writing as a tool for thinking and learning
  • Preparing to teach a writing intensive course
  • Gaining confidence and practice in their own personal writing
  • Exploring effective approaches to teaching and learning

Participants will learn about WAC techniques through:

  • Peer Collaboration
  • Writing Groups
  • Peer and Staff Presentations

Enrollment from Windward CC is managed through the Office of Academic Affairs.
