Genevieve Garcia de Mueller and Iris Ruiz

Thanks!
Jeanne Marie Rose
26:57
Mark, is it okay to circulate this document institutionally?
CWPA President
27:06
Yes! :)
CWPA President
27:12
And beyond
Jeanne Marie Rose
27:13
Great!
Christine Cucciarre
31:44
Is the bias detector a document or Web site?
Darci Thoune
32:18
Lilian said she would share it with us when she’s finished with her part.
Christine Cucciarre
32:26
Thank you!
Darci Thoune
32:32
;)
Lilian Mina
34:10
Here’s the link to the Bias Detector tool: https://www.sadker.org/curricularbias.html
Lilian Mina
34:26
It was shared by my colleague Melinda Harrison.

Lynn Reid
34:32
Thank you!
CWPA President

We will try to aggregate some of these resources and post them. :)
Lydia Wilkes
38:54
I borrowed the snack bowl idea from Patti and my students *loved* it. They were hungry.
Lilian Mina
39:10
And this is the link to the DALN website: https://www.thedaln.org/#/home
Lynn Reid
42:29
Yes--assessment is the hard part!
Lydia Wilkes
42:42
Yes, white faculty here resist antiracist assessment. Still stuck on “rigor.”
CWPA President
42:46
Totally
Paula Patch
43:31
Our biggest obstacle: apathy.
Christine Cucciarre
01:03:37
That was tooooo fast.
Patti Poblete
01:03:42
Indeed!
Ann Del Principe
01:03:53
Zoom is fast :)
Mary Lourdes Silva
01:03:58
What is the bias detector? It’s been brought up several times. Is there a document that was sent out with resources?
Christine Cucciarre
01:04:05
I’m trying Specifications grading this semester. Anyone try that yet?
Casie Fedukovich
01:04:10
https://www.sadker.org/curricularbias.html
Christine Cucciarre
01:04:24
It’s sort of like Contract grading but not quite.
Ashanka Kumari
01:04:30
Asao Inoue’s work is invaluable for thinking about Anti-Racist assessment!
Phaye Poliakoff-Chen
01:04:50
Please add resources for assessment in the writing classrooms and WAC. THANK YOU!!
CWPA President
01:05:24
OK, Phaye!
Sara Beam
01:05:33
Thank you, Ashanka!

Mark, here’s another source that was shared in our group: https://static1.squarespace.com/static/581e9e06ff7c509a5ca2fe32/t/58fa57fa37c581efdc0c532b/1492801532368/03+Towards+A+Radical+White+Identity.pdf
CWPA President
01:07:28
Thanks, Lilian!
Lynn Reid
01:07:52
Can we add this book to the list, too? https://www.amazon.com/Afrocentric-Teacher-Research-Rethinking-Appropriateness-Composition/dp/1433117541
CWPA President
01:07:55
A great point
CWPA President
01:08:23
Got it, Lynn
Jason DePolo - NC A&T State Univ.
01:08:26
Another one from our group https://web.peralta.edu/de/equity-initiative/equity/
Ashanka Kumari
01:08:30
This book is excellent for thinking aboutt WPA work as well: https://store.ncte.org/book/black-perspectives-writing-program-administration-margins-center#_=_
CWPA President
01:08:37
Adding ‘em!
Lydia Wilkes
01:08:48
Also, for white WPAs, Scott Wible’s chapter in Staci Perryman-Clark and Collin Lamont Craig’s _Black Perspectives in Writing Program Administration_.
Lydia Wilkes
01:09:04
*is indispensable.
Ashanka Kumari
01:09:11
I caution everyone to think about the identities of the authors you are reading first - are you really listening to BIPOC voices as you think about your curricula and design? Students of color do notice this.
Ernesto Abeytia
01:09:41
Yes! Thank you!
Ashanka Kumari
01:09:50
:)
Paula Patch
01:09:50
I'm also learning a lot from Carmen Kynard! She has a great piece in the new 4C4E publication, Spark: https://sparkactivism.com/volume-2-call/vol-2-intro/black-as-gravitas/
Sara Humphreys
01:09:55
https://www.ubcpress.ca/decolonizing-education
Ashanka Kumari
01:09:59
^ Carmen’s work is so so important! Yes!
Jonathan Hunt (he/they)
01:10:04
Agreed Ashanka!
Paula Patch
01:10:11
I've also learned a lot today from Ashanka Kumari--thank you!
Ashanka Kumari
01:10:19
Thanks for listening!
Kristin Prins
01:10:24
Yes :)
Sara Beam
01:10:26
Yes, thank you again Ashanka!
Lydia Wilkes
01:10:40
Yes, read everything by Carmen Kynard!
Darci Thoune
01:10:40
So many amazing resources! Thanks everyone. And, yes, thanks, Ashanka!
Jason DePolo - NC A&T State Univ.
01:10:42
Agreed :)
Virginia Schwarz
01:11:10
Thank you, Ashanka! Yes, Asao Inoue’s work is great. And identity being really important!!! For example, what are we doing about anti-Black racism in this moment?
Ann Del Principe
01:11:19
Perhaps this focus on antiracist WPAing can influence next year’s conference? (Dare I hope we are able to gather IRL next July??)
Elizabeth Burrows
01:11:20
Yes! Dr. Kynard is so inspirational
Casie Fedukovich
01:11:36
April Baker Bell’s new book, Linguistic Justice is wonderful.
Lydia Wilkes
01:11:37
I’ve seen white teachers and BIPOC teachers use Vershawn Young’s “Should Writers Use They Own English” that Mark referenced and it’s usually gone well.
Christine Cucciarre
01:11:46
Can these mini-conferences be two hours next time?
Lydia Wilkes
01:11:55
SNACK BOWL!
Lynn Reid
01:12:05
I also support the snack bowl approach.
CWPA President
01:12:11
ha! Yes, two hours!
Paula Patch
01:12:12
Black Perspectives in Writing Program Administration has been very influential for my thinking about WPA work.
Lydia Wilkes
01:12:19
Yes, the snack bowl builds community in profound ways.
Traci Gardner
01:12:24
It's hard to have a snack bowl online
Lilian Mina
01:12:27
Check if your university has a food pantry for students
Lydia Wilkes
01:12:27
Paula: same for me.
Joanna Johnson
01:12:31
How do you do snack bowl online?!
Christine Cucciarre
01:12:38
Anyone in the larger group ever try Specifications Grading?
Erin Workman
01:12:38
@Casie—Agreed! Baker-Bell’s work has been really informative for my admin team.
Hannah Bellwoar
01:12:44
Yes, I was going to ask, online snack bowl equivalent?
Patti Poblete
01:12:47
Thanks for the great discussion! If anyone wants to chat further, I'm patti.poblete@gmail.com, and @voleuseCK on Twitter.
Christine Cucciarre
01:12:51
I’m trying it this summer term.
leenick
01:13:02
I wonder what s digital/remote version of the snack bowl might be?
Sara Humphreys
01:13:04
There needs to be more here about Indigenous pedagogues. They are inclusive and incredibly helpful the classroom (when included with respect and care)
Hodges, Amy M
01:13:05
Uber Eats?
Paula Patch
01:13:12
Yes, Sara!
Patti Poblete
01:13:15
Hm. For online, I'd think maybe just having some sort of small talk question?
Sara Humphreys
01:13:19
https://www.ubcpress.ca/decolonizing-education
Lydia Wilkes
01:13:21
Sara: YES! My university is 9 miles south of a reservation. Happy to talk more.
Sara Humphreys
01:13:30
Great!
Jonathan Hunt (he/they)
01:13:53
I would recommend the group Showing Up for Racial Justice as a good resource for white people wanting to learn and make more of an impact — not specifically related to WPA work or pedagogy, though https://www.showingupforracialjustice.org
Ashanka Kumari
01:13:54
Yes, Sara! Agreed. Thanks for the book suggestion!
Ellie Browning
01:13:57
I do icebreakers to start all of my classes, so students have some time to talk about non-coursework stuff at the beginning of each class. Can be done online, too!
Sara Humphreys
01:14:02

Zoom breakout rooms for small group work replicated some of the in-class interactions for me.
Lilian Mina
01:14:42
Here’s a list of readings and other resources for classroom use. It’s been crowdsourced: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wLCzC1xQl_vEh3Of4HHIgT1gzlDvxMGboYsBXZERTNM/edit
Lydia Wilkes
01:14:43
This is on teaching Indigenous rhetorics and is very helpful: https://upcolorado.com/utah-state-university-press/item/2805-survivance-sovereignty-and-story
Casie Fedukovich
01:14:47
I would say try to find ways to invite and PAY BIPOC speakers.
Lydia Wilkes
01:14:52
Sara: I love that!!
Casie Fedukovich
01:14:53
I know $$$ is an issue.
CWPA President
01:15:38
Too many amazing ideas for me to put on our document, even though I’m scrambling! So I changed our doc to allow editing—please add resources!

Jennifer Grouling Snider
01:16:04
A moment that gave me pause: I advocated for our $5 in-house online textbook to save students money, but we don’t have any faculty of color to write for it…
Virginia Schwarz
01:16:07
Equity-minded webinars: https://coralearning.org/webinars/ includingAddressing Anti-Blackness on Campus: Implications for Educators and Institutions
Sara Humphreys
01:16:11
Agreed, Paula - Connecting with Elders and Indigenous liaisons, but this can also be burdensome to communities. It’s careful work.
Sara Humphreys
01:16:30
OERs are crucial
Patti Poblete
01:16:46
Could feel awkward for some people, but: Ask your students to teach you. I try to mention something that puzzles me or worries me. If you're not from the area, ask them to tell you about their experience of the community
Lydia Wilkes
01:16:50
Yes, Mary, I see this too often.

Responding Racial Bias and Microaggressions in Online Environments
Ann Del Principe
01:17:23
And, as we make these changes in our classrooms and programs, we need to track the disparate outcomes to see how those changes are playing out for different student groups
Virginia Schwarz
01:18:01
I worry that as long as white teachers/ admins are overrepresented in education this is going to be a conversation about white remediation rather than liberation for all.
Ashanka Kumari
01:18:05
Starting every term with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s “Danger of a Single Story” TED Talk fosters a good tone for the semester for me. I’ve taught it every semester.
