    1. Declaration of Independence

      In January 2018, The National Writing Project, Educator Innovator and Marginal Syllabus invite you to annotate the Declaration of Independence, along with Danielle Allen’s chapter, "Night Teaching," from Our Declaration (re-published with permission). In her book, Allen reflects on the purposes of democracy after a close reading of The Declaration with her night class students, who bring their own experiences to the text. If you don't catch the annotation this month, her chapter will remain on the Educator Innovator blog, so you can join the convo at any time.

      This article was originally published in March 2017 in Vol 24, Number 3 of Voices from the Middle and is used with permission from the National Council of Teachers of English.

      We're thrilled to feature this piece as part of this month's annotation, and I personally love how Linda weaves this personal anecdote into a powerful conversation about the big picture of teaching for social justice.

    1. human relationships

      Yes, and as simple as it seems, these relationships are what drive education and schooling but are the critical piece that we (school reformers, parents, etc.) tend to forget about.

    2. Under Pressure


    3. Gregory Boyle

      This piece showed up in my FB feed recently, and I can't help but wonder if this same applies to teaching...that we cannot rescue anyone at the margins, but if we stand together at the margins, we are all rescued. http://www.americamagazine.org/faith/2017/03/28/father-greg-boyle-i-thought-i-could-save-gang-members-i-was-wrong

    1. Storytelling

      Lovely piece in the Times this week about surveillance of African Americans (official and otherwise) and how artists are responding by using multimedia to take on the question of what it means to be surveilled more generally, for all people? I think it really speaks to this idea of using storytelling to cope and create counter-narratives. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/25/arts/dance/claudia-rankine-will-rawls-surveillance.html?smid=fb-share

    2. The discussion of young American Muslims in this chapter also connects to the obstacles and challenges faced by undocumented youth involved in the DREAM movement discussed in Chapter 5

      These connections seem even more profound in light of the recent legislative attempts around a travel ban and reports of DACA-protected students being deported.

    3. new media to connect to others

      This chapter was written before widespread public concern about "fake news" and "alternative facts." To be sure, there is a clear and credible threat to young people who are surveilled and danger when young people's digital footprints are under such scrutiny. I wonder if there is equal danger, though, when there is an absence of diverse voices in our online lives--in the kinds of social, cultural, and political silos and echo chambers that exist on social media.

    1. I do wonder to what extent these discursive mechanisms will take a back seat during the Trump era. There has been a remarkable resurgence of "traditional" participation (calls to Senators, Representatives, etc. - though muchof it employing new technologies).

    1. to endow them with the expectation that the writer in good faith is trying to communicate something

      This is beautiful! Sometimes it's so easy to get bogged down by style, form..grammar, errors, that we do not see the points being conveyed. And good teachers do support students in building their voices, their lines of communication.
