Will Mackintosh: Linking Thinking, Speaking, and Writing

The Write Stuff - Virginia
November 2014

One of my goals in creating The Write Stuff – Virginia was to gain insight from teachers of all content areas and grade levels about the function and importance of writing in their classrooms.  With this as a given, I was especially interested in interviewing Will Mackintosh of the University of Mary Washington.  Will is an associate professor in the Department of History and American Studies with a full teaching schedule keeping him busy each semester.  He offers thoughtful insight into university-level expectations for writing, including his own philosophies about the purpose of writing within his own content area.
