Taking the Racism Out of Teaching English Writing

 

KBCS highlights a progressive approach to teaching college writing classes. A method of teaching college level writing titled Anti-racist Writing Assessment Ecology was adopted by 62 faculty at 30 out of the 34 Washington community college and technical colleges (at the time we were working on this story).  The methodology is meant to address and minimize what some educators are considering a culturally colonized education environment.
