Welcome to the gtPathways Writing Integration Initiative

This site offers resources that address how and why writing can be an effective catalyst for learning in any discipline.

Faculty, instructors, graduate teaching assistants, and anyone else involved in this initiative will find useful resources on this site related to assigning writing, grading and responding to student writing, the importance of critical thinking, the challenges associated with integrating writing into a course, and much more.

For more information about gtPathways, please contact Professor Sarah Sloane in the English Department.

Update on the Writing across the Curriculum/gtPathways Research Competition

The gtPathways-WAC competition, administered cooperatively by the University Writing Program and TILT, was funded in 2012 by TILT and the College of Liberal Arts in order to encourage innovations to the gtPathways writing integration. Through this initiative, competition winners became Writing Research Fellows for 2012-13 and undertook relatively small projects that directly support the gtPathways Writing Integration Initiative.

Writing Integration Orientation for GTAs

  • Tuesday, August 14, 9am-12pm in Clark A203
  • Wednesday, August 15, 9am-12pm in Clark A203
  • Thursday, August 16, 9am-12pm in Clark A203

All new gtPathways GTAs should attend all days as it is difficult for students who attend only one of the cumulative sessions. Students are encouraged to enroll in E608 as well since the content is deeper and support more comprehensive than can occur in three mornings.
