In this bonus episode, Steve Parks talks about how English graduate education can be better formed to prepare and train students for academic and non-academic purposes.
Here's one of my favorite quotes from the bonus episode:
"[Graduate students] have seen a world that is profoundly unjust, they have been promised a degree that helps them address that. Then they find themselves de-skilled and unable to enact the politics that animate their lives...we need to address that or lose a whole generation of really powerful scholars and activists."

Hi! I promised everyone yesterday a new blog post with resources from Episode 3: Stephanie Vie.
Here we are, and here you go.
As mentioned in a previous post, I do this because contributors mention great texts/materials and resources they use, or materials that have informed their own teaching of writing in each episode. As you know, Pedagogue is dedicated to making episodes accessible and resources. In Episode 3, Stephanie Vie shares some book club ideas and readings that have worked well with her colleagues at the University of Central Florida, a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI).
Here are some of the resources mentioned/referenced during our conversation:
Social Writing/Social Media: Publics, Presentations, and Pedagogies edited by Douglas M. Walls and Stephanie Vie
Technology and Literacy: A Story about the Perils of Not Paying Attention by Cynthia L. Selfe
Writing in an Age of Surveillance, Privacy & Net Neutrality by Estee Beck, Angela Crow, Heidi McKee, Colleen A. Reilly, Jennifer deWinter, Laura Gonzales, and Danielle Nicole DeVoss
Teaching What You Don't Know by Therese Huston
College of the Overwhelmed: The Campus Mental Health Crisis and What to Do About It by Richard Kadison and Theresa Foy DiGeronimo
Teaching Underprepared Students: Strategies for Promoting Success and Retention in Higher Education by Kathleen F. Gabriel and Sandra M. Flake
Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria: And Other Conversations About Race by Beverly Daniel Tatum
Writing Your Journal Article in Twelve Weeks: A Guide to Academic Publishing Success by Wendy Belcher
I hope this helps,
Hi, everyone! There's a lot going on over here and a lot happening over the next several days. I wanted to give you all an update.
First, resources mentioned in Episode 3: Stephanie Vie will be posted tomorrow in this blog so stay tuned for a new post. There are a lot of great resources Stephanie talks about that can encourage faculty to come together to talk about teaching and writing -- and some great resources that might help others in similar local contexts. Some great books for book club ideas.
The first bonus episode is going to be released next week. These episodes are going to be stylized like this --- Pedagogue Bonus: _______________. And they are going to be on a singular topic/question and around 5-10 minutes long. You can read more about the idea behind this here.
Pedagogue Bonus: Re-imagining English Graduate Education (w/Steve Parks)
This is a great [7-8 minute] clip about how graduate education can be better formed to prepare and train students for all types of work. You can vote for when you want to hear that bonus episode. So go here and vote for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.
And last thing for now! The good people in the Working and Writing for Change series, an imprint series of Parlor Press, wanted to help support the podcast and increase its visibility. If you want, you can check it out here.
As always, thanks for all the support
In this episode, Steve Parks talks about the writing classroom as a space for validating students' literacy, how he shifts his identity to help create a more inclusive classroom, and strategies for developing and sustaining community partnerships.

Hi everyone, the Twitter poll resulted in a Friday, 07/12 release date (tomorrow!). Here were the official results: Wednesday 33%; Thursday 25%; Friday 42%.
I might do more polls like this in the future because it's another way to interact and collaborate with you all, which is something I'm really trying to make a priority for Pedagogue. I like knowing who's listening, what people are taking away from the episodes, how people are re-imagining their teaching and classrooms. Those are all things I want to hear about, things I care about, so please feel free to post, tweet, or comment below these blog posts.
I'm excited to share this new episode with you all tomorrow. This is a great episode for those of us interested in incorporating a social justice based approach to teaching writing, and for those of us interested in building community partnerships and having our classroom work with local organizations.
I'll be writing a post next week about the resources mentioned from Episode 3: Stephanie Vie (like I did for the Mike Rose episodes). Vie gave us a lot to think about in terms of professional/faculty development, and some real practical ways to help foster and support writing in our programs and departments, such as starting a reading/book club with our colleagues. Stay tuned for that post.
Thanks for caring,
Hi all, I'm excited to announce that a new episode is going to be released next week. You can vote on the release date via Twitter. So go place your vote on the poll for Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.
In the new episode, I talk with Steve Parks, an associate professor in the Department of English at the University of Virginia. In Episode 4, we talk about social justice-based approaches to teaching writing and building community partnerships. We talk a lot about how to support marginalized voices in the classroom, how to challenge and critique institutional values that suppress those voices, how to create inclusive writing classrooms, and how to best build partnerships with local organizations.
Remember to follow this blog for new information and updates. You'll hear it here first before Twitter and Instagram. Stay tuned for another blog post about a bonus episode being released.
Thanks for listening and caring,
