Title

Moving from Multiculturalism to Antiracism in the ESL Writing Classroom

Abstract

English as a Second Language (ESL) writing teachers may have already diversifed their curriculum, with readings proudly seen as “multicultural.” Attendees will discuss the challenges involved in moving beyond this simple view to truly antiracist classrooms. Strategies for antiracism approaches to readings, grammar, and grading will be presented. This session will be interactive with some discussion of sample student texts and possible reactions to them, on the level of both grammar and content, with an explicitly antiracist lens.
