Our February reading for the 2019-20 Literacy, Equity + Remarkable Notes = LEARN Marginal Syllabus explores the multiliteracies among youth of color who constructed tributes to the city of Detroit and envisioned strengths in their communities. Researchers Vaughn W. M. Watson and Alecia Beymer write about the after-school Verses Project at Detroit’s Community Music School. This article describes the multimodal processes of young writers as they compose in a genre the authors describe as “praisesongs of place.”

Educator Innovator. (2019, May 7). Marginal Syllabus (May) – Freirean Counternarratives to Support Student Voice [Video]. YouTube.

Our May, 2019 reading for Literacy, Equity + Remarkable Notes = LEARN looks at activism in a high school English classroom where students challenge a school policy as a “problematic text.” In a piece written for the English Journal, authors Everardo Pedraza and R. Joseph Rodriguez spotlight the youth participatory action research of Pedraza’s students, and the way their writing of Freirean counternarratives became a vehicle for them to speak truth to power and enact policy change.

The authors of January’s Marginal Syllabus reading, along with other educators, join CLTV for a discussion about the experiences of English teachers in urban settings and teaching for social justice. The discussion gravitates around the results of a longitudinal study that examined the professional learning and teaching practices of early-career teachers over five years.
