Hi! I'm releasing another (full!) new episode this week. You can always listen to last week's episode (Episode 8: Jessica Nastal) here. This week, I talk with Beverly J. Moss, a teacher and scholar who expands the classroom, who inquires and investigates writing practices through ethnographies, and who focuses on community literacies. It's a great episode for teachers interested in community engagement and community literacies. We also talk about race. In the last 7-8 minutes of the episode, Beverly opens up and shares what it looks like and means to occupy a predominately white space. That segment is one of my favorites from any episode. I would really encourage everyone to listen to it.
Episode 9: Beverly J. Moss
In this episode, Beverly J. Moss talks about her research in African American churches and communities, how she embraces community literacies in teaching, and what it means to teach writing as an African American woman in a predominately white space.
