This talk engages with the question of what it means to assess and grade college student writing for a more antiracist classroom. It focuses not on people behaving badly or racist, but rather on the historical and structural ways that most academics judge and read language; teachers’ ways of assessing language; disciplines’ logics and ways with words; and most professions’ expectations of language use.
This workshop will challenge participants to bravely investigate their own classroom assessment practices, particularly their orientations toward student writing as embodied in their feedback to that writing. The workshop will consider habits of White language that inform assessment practices in our own classrooms as well as several “fast thinking” mind heuristics.
