Writing in the Disciplines
Writing in the Disciplines Response to Covid-19
The Writing in the Disciplines Program will continue to provide remote support for the teaching of writing across the curriculum at Montgomery College. We offer the online workshop series “Learning to Write and Writing to Learn: Writing in the Disciplines” through the Academy for Teaching Transformation (enroll via MC Learns).

- Run a peer review session using Blackboard or Zoom
- Develop discussion board prompts in Blackboard
- Create rubrics for writing assignments, writing-to-learn activities, and Blackboard discussions
- Offer resources for research writing, working with sources, and citations.
