Jay Gordon

Jay L. Gordon (PhD, Carnegie Mellon University) has a background in rhetoric and composition and is especially interested in the teaching of writing. He has taught in both the composition and the professional and technical writing (PTW) programs in the English department. His most recent research interest is in the idea of “clarity” in writing: What does it mean to be clear? How do we learn to write more clearly? What makes some writing clear and some unclear?
