Professional Growth Forum: Siting Resistance in the Writing Classroom, Strategies for Student and Teacher Empowerment

Carter Reitman, Andrew Ludwig, Storm Pilloff, Yasmine Lamloum, Chelsea Dolan, and Hal Hinderliter

This forum will explore critical pedagogy as it applies to issues of student and teacher resistance, complemented by strategies for empowerment. Discussions will address instructor authority within informed critical resistance; issues of accessibility and inclusivity; leveraging the interplay of enjoyment and motivation; instructor resistance to student voices; and the political underpinnings to our disengagement with grammar. We’ll invite your discussions as we propose actionable ideas applicable to the writing classroom.

Friday, April 15 from 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., Curtin 368
