What do you believe about illiteracy? Is someone who cannot read or write stupid? Is illiteracy primarily a socioeconomic problem? Does there come a point when it is too late for a person to learn to read? These are all common myths about adult illiteracy. Join us on January 19, 2011 for a discussion of John Corcoran's book, The Teacher Who Couldn't Read, and learn the truth about these as other issues related to literacy. Debbie Forshee-Sweeney from Union's Teaching Learning Center will lead the discussion beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the President's Dining Room (west side).
This event is part of the One Book One Union program. If you have not yet read Corcoran's book, pick up a copy from the library or the bookstore today.
