Our speakers are Shawanda J. Stewart and Stephanie M. Frausto from Huston-Tillotson University in Austin, Texas. In “How to Stop Harming Students: An Ecological Guide to Antiracist Writing Assessment,” Inoue and Poe identify seven interconnected, holistic components of a writing assessment ecology and encourage people to consider the histories and the ideologies that inform their writing assessment values. During this interactive workshop, they will work through determining these values. Please bring with you about 10 side/end comments made to student writing.
