“To rid classrooms of microaggressions”

Profs suggest students wear ‘name cards with gender pronouns’
Professors should promote “dialogue, not debate” during class to prevent students from committing microaggressions, according to two New England professors.
In the latest issue of the Journal of Teaching in Social Work, New York University Professor Justin Lerner and Simmons College Professor Anjali Fulambarker urge their colleagues to cultivate a “space free from microaggressions” by adopting a “social justice agenda” in class.
To rid classrooms of microaggressions, their first recommendation for professors involves requiring students to wear “name cards with gender pronouns” so that students “can avoid being mislabeled from the 1st day.”
“Each week, for the entirety of the semester, students should wear these name tags, which also may help the instructor take attendance by picking up the name tags at the end of class each week,” they explain.
After students create their name cards, Lerner and Fulambarker urge professors to establish “group guidelines” so that students’ “comfort” is kept in mind. The principle of “dialogue, not debate” is one of the most important guidelines, the two note.
Debate, they warn, “involves one person proving the other person wrong, or themselves to be right. Of course, this is a zero sum [sic] game.”
