Writing Works

Writing Works is CCCC s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). The purpose of Writing Works is to develop and nurture a college environment that supports the learning of written communication skills.

The idea behind the plan is that writing is a tool for learning and communicating what you know in each course taught at CCCC, from automotive, machining, and computer information technology courses to criminal justice, bioprocess technology, and university transfer courses.

A significant part of the assessment plan is the Four Cs Rubric. The Four Cs Rubric captures high expectations and addresses characteristics (e.g., purpose, organization, development, and mechanics) common to the variety of writing formats used in the disciplines taught at CCCC. Those writing elements are represented in four rubric categories: Complete, Clear, Coherent, and Correct. An additional commonality is that each program is required to develop a capstone writing assignment that elicits one or more of the top three thinking skills in Bloom's Revised Taxonomy: analyze, evaluate, and create.

What does this mean for students?

It doesn't mean a term paper in every course. It does mean that you should notice that instructors are using writing to help you learn and understand the concepts presented in your courses. By the time you earn your degree, you will be able to communicate appropriately in writing.

The focus of Writing Works and of Central Carolina Community College is on equipping students to succeed in school, at work, and in the community.
