Inclusive Strategies for Teaching with Writing

How does "standard academic English" discriminate against many of the students we want to attract to our courses, majors and programs? How can you fairly and effectively provide feedback to writers to speak a variety of American dialects and World Englishes? And how can you use writing as an inclusive tool for learning, no matter your discipline and the size of your courses? In this session, faculty from the Sweetland Center for Writing will provide an introduction to standard language ideology, discuss some alternative ways of viewing language difference in writing, and identify strategies for developing writing assignments, providing feedback, and evaluating writing that equitably facilitate the success of all learners. This session will be helpful for anyone who assigns formal or informal writing in their courses and wants new ways to think about assigning and evaluating writing.
