African-American Women’s Poetry Anthology

Mini anthology of poetry readings by African American women

Exit Ticket sample

Shared by Anne McGrail

This mini-anthology and the accompanying exit tickets provide weekly occasions for engaging and low-stakes student writing. Over the course of 11 weeks students watch 11 readings and compile 11 exit tickets.  (I format it as a “book” in my LMS but that’s not shareable here.) I link out to the exit ticket from my LMS. I use the “notice/value/wonder/question-challenge-extend” protocol from the Washington Center as the basis for the question stems.

Elizabeth is a professor of developmental reading and writing at Illinois Central College. Growing up in Arvin, CA, Elizabeth was forever shaped by the injustices as well as the community and shared responsibility created by the migrant farming situation. As a first-generation college student and community college graduate, Elizabeth is a fierce advocate of open admissions and basic writing programs. While pursuing her Ph.D. in Writing Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Elizabeth focused on basic writing, literacy studies, and disability studies. Her dissertation explored how the introduction of standardized intelligence testing and the eugenics movement converged with limited understandings of literacy to create the category of learning disabilities. That history informs her academic obsession with public (mis)understandings of basic writers. In her non-academic life, Elizabeth is a wife, mom, dog lover, and good food fanatic.
