As with all readings on the SFSU Marginal Syllabus, at minimum this is an open resource for your ‘un’learning, considerations for your classroom pedagogy, and transformations in your teaching. At its greatest potential, the Marginal Syllabus is here to facilitate our collaboration of ideas, questions, and best practices. As we read the latest words from Asao B. Inoue, and his call to unlearn racist structures and behaviors of which we are a part…don’t read this alone! Join the discussion in the margins, using hypothes.is! Read some of your colleagues’ thoughts; leave a few thoughts of your own- or leave one single annotation or thought about the entire text. This collaboration is open!

Step 1: Sign up with  hypothes.is! CLICK HERE.  Then click “Get Started.” You will get an email verification to authenticate your free account.

Step 2: JOIN our group!  CLICK HERE to join the SFSUMarginalSyllabus group.
