Last month, in an Educator Innovator webinar titled “Growing Up American-Muslim: Challenges and Opportunities in the Classroom & Beyond,” teachers and youth convened to discuss the experiences of American-Muslim students and teachers across geographic and educational contexts. In this webinar we are joined by authors of By Any Media Necessary: The New Youth Activism (2016, NYU Press) and dive deeper into this topic by looking at a related chapter called “Storytelling and Surveillance: The Precarious Public of American Muslim Youth” in collaboration with Marginal Syllabus.
This conversation kicked off a week-long “annotathon” hosted by Marginal Syllabus, which can be viewed here.
More about Marginal Syllabus:
The Marginal Syllabus is an informal educator professional learning effort that convenes monthly annotation conversations, or “annotathons,” about issues of educational equity. Marginal Syllabus organizers partner with authors and education experts whose scholarly perspectives may be considered marginal to dominant conventions of schooling and education. The openly accessible texts of partner authors – whether book chapters or blog posts – are selected as online forums for conversation among K-12 and postsecondary educators via the open educational practices of web annotation (conversations that occur in a text’s margins). Both the individual texts where monthly dialogue occurs – and the syllabus as a cohesive, growing document – represent a dynamic conversation that seeks to open texts as contexts for educators’ interest-driven learning.
