What is a Writing Intensive Course?

Writing Intensive courses are General Education courses that incorporate a writing component. That is, they use both formal and informal writing as one method of teaching and assessment. The goal of Writing Intensive courses is 2-fold. First, the hope is that they will help PCCC students improve their writing skills. Second, they are intended to help students learn their course material by introducing writing, critical thinking and information literacy to the subject at hand. Below are the objectives for a Writing Intensive course.

Upon completion of a writing-intensive course, students should be able to:

  • Use the process of writing, including pre-writing and revision strategies;
  • Support their ideas in writing with specific details and evidence;
  • Structure their ideas in an organized format;
  • Edit their writing according to the rules of standard academic English;
  • Evaluate their sources for credibility and academic appropriateness;
  • Employ techniques for integrating information, such as paraphrasing, summarizing, and quoting;
  • Exhibit the ability to think critically;
  • Demonstrate, through their writing, familiarity with the College's standard, evaluative writing rubric; and
  • Cite sources using an appropriate documentation style.

Students are eligible to take a Writing Intensive course after they have successfully completed Composition I.

Based on their major, all students who entered PCCC after Fall 2007 are required to take 1 or 2 Writing Intensive courses to graduate. For more information on WI course requirements in the Academic Bulletin.

To the right is the list of WI courses being offered this semester.
