Writing as a disabled Latinx individual myself, I believe that familiarity with the online tactics of disabled activists would prove useful in the development of new tactics for promoting visibility regarding Latinx issues; such understanding would also hone attention on the needs of multiply-marginalized Latinxs, ensuring that the needs of the most vulnerable are centered in the struggle for human rights.

At Troy, Fulmer said, the student-support center used to be seen as “the center for students with problems.” He instead wants it to be like a kitchen table in the student’s home. “The kitchen table is where I did my homework, where I got encouragement, where sometimes I got behavior modification,” he said. “It was a safe place.”

      nice definition of open pedagogy

    2. e. The key is that learning occurs seamlessly between the classroom and everyday activities" (Hegarty, 2014b, para 10). Accordingly, I define arc-of-life learning as: a seamless process that occurs throughout life when participants engage in open and collaborative networks, communities, and openly shared repositories of informa- tion in a structured way to create their own culture of learning

      I think this is a beautiful definition of 'transfer', which illuminates how students cannot go use the knowledge of the iLearn interface in their lives, while they can use hypothes.is and wordpress in their lives.

      privilege = responsibiliy to address the root of injustice, and solutions

    4. weaponization of subaltern trauma, which functions to entertain, enlighten, educate, generate profit, or arouse privileged audiences.

      what strikes me here is when they say used 'to educate...' grouped in there with the others...and would it dependon the positionality of the teacher, and students?

      Yes, stronger rent control regulations, not weaker

    2. home prices aren’t the only thing that has gone up. Transportation, utilities and food are also costly

    1. that doesn’t mean you’re alone

      Believing! I have tried to emphasize this throughout the semester!

    2. You don’t have teachers nagging you to turn in your work and you don’t have your parents waking you up for class.

      Believing! : We talked about this last week - and guess what. People who were more independent with their time management are the people who are getting an A for the course (for the most part). Or B. Still a sign!

    3. “PB&J Club”

      Doubting: so it really doesn't matter what club you join? As long as you are making connections and friends? Is PB &J club really a thing???

    4. You’ll meet some of your future friends, business partners

      Doubting: do you really meet future business partners at orientation? Friends, sure, but your career partners? Is it that important?

      Doubting: Aren't we seeing this already? As teachers we talk about how we're seeing more anxiety in students...is there really a lack of substantive evidence?

    2. In other words, kids aren’t getting sicker, overall, but more of the kids who are sick lack other treatment options and are seeking out services via their universities.

      Doubting: what about all the social media and screen time? Doesn't this factor into students' mental health?

    4. counseling centers have found themselves increasingly — and unfamiliarly — taking on the roles of frontline mental-health service providers.

      Doubting: Is Jess Brooks saying this is a good thing?

    2. I want to tell him it's not true, he just has to work and get stronger in that area of his life. He, like many people, tells himself and the world that he’s “not creative” (left-siders), or “not good with numbers” (right-siders).

    1. Does your curriculum reflect its location in Africa and the global South? To what extent does it draw on subjugated histories, voices, cultures and languages?
