Salt Lake Community College

"Why They Can't Write" Learning Community

Facilitator:  Tiffany Rousculp

John Warner, who taught writing at the college level for two decades, argues in his book Why They Can't Write, that the problems in the writing skills of college students isn't caused by a lack of rigor, or smartphones, or some generational character defect. Instead, he asserts, we're teaching writing wrong. 

Join us for a discussion of Warner's book. Lunch included.
