Can a Writing Center Pedagogy Reverse the New Racism?
DeCiccio, Albert
Online Submission
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to argue that writing center workers provide a model for reversing the new racism. Methodology: An examination of writing center practices (dialogue and conversation) as well as practices offered by thinkers outside of the writing center (collaborative learning and laboratory learning) is presented. Results: The examination yields arguments in support of the assertion that a pedagogy of hope is necessary to erect a sustainable multicultural community. Conclusions: There is a real possibility that abundant ideas as well as positive actions and preferred outcomes will be generated within a multicultural community. Recommendations: It is only through abundant conversations about issues such as race and resegregation in a community of creative and critical thinkers that all of us may see lived examples of Thurgood Marshall's definition of "equal" offered during the time of the Brown decision: "'Equal' means [everyone] getting the same thing, at the same time and in the same place."
