Faculty Workshop – Why They Can’t Write: Killing the Five-Paragraph Essay & Other Necessities

Tuesday, August 20, 2019
3 – 4 PM

Lafayette College in the Pfenning Alumni Center – Wilson Room

FEATURING: John Warner, academic, consultant, speaker and author

What do higher ed professionals need to know about this phenomenon, and how can we help students be better prepared for the writing challenges of post-secondary education?
