Event Description
This two-part workshop for CoAS faculty will help faculty learn how identity affects language and meaning-making, recognize the influences shaping teaching practices and pedagogies, and apply anti-racist writing pedagogies to course material, like a syllabus or assignment.

May 19: Anti-Racist Writing Pedagogy: Linguistic Diversity and Why it Matters.
  • Recognize the influences shaping your teaching practices and pedagogies, including conscious and unconscious bias.
  • Recognize the diversity of your own language, and its connections to identity.
  • Recognize what identities/affiliations you’ve been taught to erase in places of power, and consider how you learned those expectations.

May 26: Anti-Racist Writing Pedagogy: Applications to Teaching and Scholarship.
  • Define, and recognize the characteristics of, dominant language ideology.
  • Examine course materials for characteristics of dominant language ideology.
  • Apply anti-racist scholarship/theory to one course element, such as a syllabus or assignment.
This workshop is facilitated by Janel McCloskey (Associate Director, University Writing Program) and Neisha-Anne Green (Director, American University Academic Student Services), with support from the CoAS Curriculum Innovation Fund.
