Forum: Communication Activism Pedagogy. Expanding CAP's Interventionist Model and Developing Proper Learning Rubrics
Del Gandio, Jason
Communication Education, v66 n3 p376-378 2017
For Frey and Palmer (2014), communication activism pedagogy (CAP) "teaches students how to use their communication knowledge and resources (e.g., theories, research methods, pedagogies, and other practices) to work with community members to intervene into and reconstruct unjust discourses in more just ways." The author of this response essay supports this endeavor, but worries that this interventionist model--as currently presented--is too narrow. Does every CAP-related activity or course necessitate "direct intervention?" This critique of what the author perceives to be a narrow interventionism can be jettisoned by developing CAP's learning rubrics: (1) theoretical/conceptual; (2) strategic/tactical; (3) practical/performative; and (4) communicative/rhetorical. To maintain the integrity of communication "activism" pedagogy, each of these rubrics should work within the interventionist model espoused by Frey and Palmer. Different courses and assignments can then emphasize any combination of rubrics depending on the wants and needs of individual instructors and students.
