The Anti-Racist Classroom
These resources are for instructors (in any discipline) who want to strengthen their teaching of writing by interpreting best practices through an anti-racist framework. The links below will direct you to documents containing sample lesson plans, course design ideas, and background reading on anti-racist pedagogy. At the University of Georgia's Writing Center, we believe that good writing instruction is inclusive and accessible writing instruction, and we are proud to provide support to all members of our writing community.
The resources on this page were developed by Assistant Director Paula Rawlins and writing consultant Emma Catherine Perry between May and December, 2019. Each resource was published on the Writing Center's social media channels as part of a weekly series during the Fall 2019 semester.
Course Design and Preparation
Sample Lessons and Assignments
These three resources form a tripartite series that introduces the basic concepts of translingual writing instruction and offers a sequence of suggested lesson plans and minor assignments. These lessons and writing activities invite students and instructors to reflect on their preconceived notions of acceptable expression and encourage writers to identify and cultivate their own writerly voices.
