Professor Martin Milkman in the Economics and Finance department at Murray State University is this week’s #RacerScholar. His article, “Writing Across the Curriculum in Elective Economics Classes,” is included in volume 46, issue 1, of National Social Science Journal.
This paper presents the methods and results of a Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) study conducted at Murray State University in two elective economics classes. While there is plenty of literature about WAC, I hope that this paper will be interesting as it offers some suggestions to instructors who would be interested using WAC in their classrooms. After a very brief review of the literature, the paper describes how WAC was used in the two classes and the results of the program.
