Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) is a faculty development project designed to encourage the incorporation of writing into classes in all instructional divisions at PCC. Instructional Aides assist instructors from various disciplines as they incorporate writing into their classes. They also attend meetings and workshops to learn about WAC principles and techniques. If hired, an IA will be expected to commit to the program for the 2003-2004 academic year. This is a great opportunity to get training and hands-on classroom experience.
