Protest Writing (hannah)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

Act with courage; make a case that a principle trumps a rule.

What is protest writing? In this class, we will examine writing as, about, and against protest. I am interested in how we define protest writing — what is its purpose? For whom is it written? Is writing a protest tactic? How do different kinds of writing spur or dismantle protest?

Our scope will be mostly within the United States, specifically protest in Seattle. Students will practice their own protest writing, focusing on personal causes they care about.

Required texts/materials: A notebook. We will read at least one book all together which we will get for you.
