Marginal Syllabus

The Marginal Syllabus (http://marginalsyllab.us/) is a free and public educator professional learning initiative that convenes conversations about educational equity via open web annotation. The Marginal Syllabus embraces an intentional political and technical double-entendre; the initiative partners with authors whose writing may be considered marginal - or contrary - to dominant education narratives, and educator conversation occurs in the margins of partner authors' texts using the open web annotation platform Hypothesis. The 2017-18 Marginal Syllabus, hosted by the National Writing Project, is organized around the theme "Writing Our Civic Futures" and can be accessed at http://marginalsyllab.us/conversations/the-2017-18-syllabus/. During Open Education Week, the March Marginal Syllabus conversation will explore the topic of critical media literacy in the classroom by openly annotating the text "The Stories They Tell: Mainstream Media, Pedagogies of Healing, and Critical Media Literacy" by partner authors April Baker-Bell, Raven Jones Stanbrough, and Sakeena Everett.
