Digital Pedagogy; or, How to Engage Your Students to #StayWoke | HASTAC

As an ally, following this hashtag and injunction is one of the ways I try to listen and learn from the #BlackLivesMatter movement in order to keep my scholarly and personal commitment to social justice active and responsive to current events and the power of grassroots organization. For Fall 2015, I was about to teach a course of my own design entitled “Black Power, Yellow Peril,” an advanced writing seminar on the comparative racialization of African Americans and Asian Americans from the nineteenth-century through to the present-day. I wanted to figure out how to develop a participation component of my syllabus to help my students also #staywoke – to take our class as a starting point for their exploration of these issues and other intersecting conversations and to view the course as one of many sites of the ongoing complex politics that happen all around them every day.
