"I am teaching a psych WI class with both advanced undergraduates and graduate students, and I'm going all out: each class (3 hours, once a week) has a writing lesson of about an hour.  And the writing sections are going really well because I'm splitting the class into small groups--something I've never done before.  I give them small exercises and mix up the groups each week.  Students now are willing to talk and to work together on writing." —Professor Malcolm Watson
