Natomas - Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)

We provide a comfortable learning environment that reinforces the importance of the writing process.

The WAC program believes that good writing often emerges when students feel part of a community of learners. The ultimate goal of our program is to develop self-reliant writers. Our friendly, collaborative approach engages students in their writing process in order to promote long-term confidence and success.

We believe that listening to students is essential to helping them grow as writers. Students need guidance in finding their own solutions rather than being provided answers. Writing conferences that lead to revision empower student writers across all disciplines.

As a result, students become better writers by focusing on the process of writing.
