The second component of the curriculum enhancement initiative will be to integrate writing self-analysis into writing-intensive classes. In these courses, students will be required to upload writing samples to a university writing portfolio and include a self-analysis along with the samples. The self-analysis will document how the student approached his or her writing topic, why they chose a specific writing method, how their drafts evolved, and why certain changes made the document more clear, concise, and effective.
At 1 p.m. on May 1, in conjunction with ECU's annual commemoration of Founders Day and University Awards Day, a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held for the new homes of the Quality Enhancement Plan, the University Writing Center, the University Writing Program and the Office for Faculty Excellence. The event will be held in the Joyner Library.
