Abstract

How and what can one write in the different subjects at high school level? Why and for what purpose does one write? How could the practices of writing be interwoven with the disciplinary contents of subjects such as Physics, Biology, or History? What kind of learning is being promoted in these didactic situations? Federico Navarro and Andrea Revel Chion offer some specific and accurate answers to these questions in their book Escribir para aprender. Disciplinas y escritura en la escuela secundaria. Targetting teachers and school directors, this book describes a pedagogical and institutional project that emphasizes the epistemic potentials of writing in secondary classrooms and provides working guidelines that can be replicated in other institutional contexts. Their proposal is theoretically and empirically grounded on the premises put forward by the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) movement.
