MAX Writing Support featured in the Mac Weekly
In fall 2022, the Mac Weekly profiled Writing Support Coordinator/Instructor Jake Mohan, whose efforts to integrate anti-racist pedagogy into the MAX Center’s tutoring practices were recently recognized by the SLAC-WPA Martinson Award for Innovation.
“Unlearning White Supremacy in Writing”
In spring 2022, MAX Center writing tutors wrote and published an open letter in the Mac Weekly about how academic writing can be taught and evaluated in a more equitable and inclusive way.
With funding from the Mellon Foundation, Writing Coordinator Jake Mohan recently prepared two documents exploring the social, cultural, and racial dimensions of how we teach students to write. These two documents are intended for instructors and tutors hope to deepen their understanding of anti-racist and anti-oppressive pedagogy, and make their spaces of learning more inclusive and humane.
