Writing Assessment Workshop: “Bravely Challenging Our White Language Supremacy in Our Assessments of Student Writing” Online
This faculty workshop will encourage participants to investigate their own classroom assessment practices, particularly their orientations toward student writing as embodied in their feedback to that writing. The workshop will consider White supremacy culture in classrooms, Whiteliness, and habits of White language (HOWL) that inform assessment practices and teacher responses to student writing, with frequent moments of reflection for participants to engage in. Faculty participants should bring to the workshop one sample paper with their feedback or assessments to the student on it or attached. This should demonstrate the typical kind of feedback the teacher provides. This workshop asks participants to be brave in the ways that Arao and Clemens describe “brave spaces” for doing race work, especially antiracist work, and to be compassionate to themselves and their colleagues. Participants will get a handout of resources.
Asao B. Inoue is a professor and the associate dean for Academic Affairs, Equity, and Inclusion in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at Arizona State University. His research focuses on antiracist and social justice theory and practices in writing assessments.
