Resource Guide for Teaching Writing Intensive Courses

The purpose of this guide is to point you to some resources that may assist you in developing and teaching Writing Intensive courses. This guide includes general resources on writing pedagogy as well as resources appropriate for specific disciplines.

Teaching Writing in Scientific Fields

Since there are few resources in these areas I have combined books on science, mathematical and technical writing. I also refer you to the Writing in the Disciplines page, some of which have chapters related to scientific, mathematical and technical writing.

The book below, Design Discourse, is available in the Open Textbook Library. It is covered by a Creative Commons license, which means that it can be feely downloaded or printed, as long as it is for non-commercial purposes. It is also available through our EBSCO ebook subscription, which both restricts access to Hofstra users and limits the number of pages that can be downloaded or printed. Our catalog links to both versions. The URL provided in this guide links to the Open Textbook Library.
