Writing and the Forestry Curriculum
At North Carolina State University forestry faculty members incorporate writing instruction in technical courses and provide team evaluations of student papers. Results include improved student attitudes and understanding concerning report writing, gains in stylistic and grammatical performance, and increasingly functional reports. Faculties who wish to improve student writing must consistently and frequently demand that students communicate their knowledge in realistic reporting situations, and must teach effective use of data and literature and encourage verbal precision and adaptation of style to audience.
