Sik-Han Bae
전공연계글쓰기(WAC)의 국내 적용을 위한 전제 조건
This article aims to show how American universities have overcome the myth of transience with respect to writing and extended the WAC programs across the colleges and universities. This investigation is a necessary procedure for second leap of Korean university’s writing education because Korean universities, even many writing instructors, are still deluded by the myth. It is a prevalent but mythical thought in Korean universities that the education of academic writing can be accomplished by one or two general writing courses. First of all, I’ll uncover the causes of the myth and expose the misunderstandings brought about by it(II), then survey the successful history of American WAC programs which had overcome the myth of transience(III), next examine various attempts to transplant WAC program to Korean universities and existing confusions(IV), and lastly lays emphasis on the writing community that corrects the century-old idea about writing and leads faculties into the WAC program(V).
Key Words: WAC의 역사, Writing-Across-the-Curriculum, Myth of Transience, Faculty Workshop, Writing Community, History of WAC
