Context and Problem

Kingsborough Community College initiated a Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Initiative in 2001.  As part of this initiative, I developed two writing intensive (WI) microbiology courses.  Based on surveys completed by students, they report they are better readers, better writers, and learned more as a result of the course's writing assignments.  However, based on an examination of end of semester grades, the students in WI sections did not seem to do any better than those students in the traditional course.
