Beyond Tolerant - Revise and Decolonize
Through this activity, students engage with problematic statements from a series of different artifacts as a way of analyzing how dominant cultural stereotypes infect everyday discourse, then offering revisions designed to make the texts more inclusive.
Channeling the Doubter and Believer
This activity promotes students’ critical thinking of the revision process by asking them to act as both a “doubter” (critic) and “believer” (advocate) in the peer review process. Rather than focusing on the entire draft, students are asked to single out one particularly challenging paragraph from their draft and workshop it with their peers.
Tell Us Telos
Through close analysis of a TED talk, this activity encourages students to consider how to design a presentation with purpose (telos) in mind.
