This workshop focuses on antiracist writing assessment and tutoring. The facilitator will discuss the theories of linguistic racism and antiracist assessment, and then describe how she applies that theory to her own practice as a writing instructor at an HBCU. She will particularly focus on labor contracts and rubrics, sharing examples and inviting participants to practice antiracist assessment in response to a student sample. The facilitator will also reflect on the ways that the global pandemic has created a moment for innovation and invite participants to explore strategies for applying antiracist assessment in their own online writing courses and online writing centers.
Wonderful Faison, PhD, professionally known as Dr. Wonderful, is the English Department Chair and an Assistant Professor of English at Langston University. She is interested in linguistic racism and racist pedagogical and writing assessment practices.
