President Maimon Quoted in Inside Higher Ed Story

President Elaine P. Maimon was recently quoted in an Inside Higher Ed article on effective writing practices. The article cites President Maimon as a founder of the Writing Across the Curriculum movement, which promotes the importance of writing assignments in all classes. “Writing across the curriculum is the original high-impact practice. I would also endorse the point that the quality of interventions is more important than the quantity of pages written. Students should write a great deal to develop fluency, but they should ‘go public’ only after carefully revising material, with interventions from the instructor and peers. Submitting material for a grade certainly counts as ‘going public,’” she said.
