    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Some form of equitable social contract is valuable between course participants. Contracts, when presented thoughtfully, can be negotiated equitably and ethically. When teaching social justice, it’s critical to model a social justice paradigm. Start this assignment by discussing how students can consider the meaning of work, individual versus collaborative contribution, and work products. Remember: Students may not know how to write a contract without totalitarian or authoritarian language. Guide them to writing an equitable contract. It is important to talk about how the instructor will interpret the guidelines they set when grading or assessing work products resulting from the contract. This activity is designed to help students create a collaborative contract that outlines the group’s work and the group members’ shared responsibilities. The directions for the assignment are in the COMM 4543 syllabus, which is another artifact included in this keyword. Names and contact information were removed from the student sample.
