Open Access Graduate Research Paper
For many years experts in the field of education have emphasized the importance of writing in the content areas. As early as 1919 a manual was published which called for more composition work by teachers of history, science, and other content areas (Harwood, 1985). In the 1960's a book was published in which it was argued that only when teachers in all disciplines emphasize the importance of writing will students, in turn, recognize its value (Fader, 1968). It was during the 1970's that the major call went out for "writing across the curriculum" (Britton, 1975).
