Artifacts as Meaning Makers in Curriculum

Geared toward Teachers in classrooms K–College

How do artifacts crack open counter narratives, silenced stories, or new perspectives? Explore what happens when artifacts are brought intentionally into a curriculum to make meaning and draw attention to embodied understandings. Drawing on Critical Artifactual Literacy, this workshop takes up the question: How can artifacts lead to teaching literacy in new ways? In this three-day workshop, educators will gain experience writing with artifacts and learn approaches to develop or reimagine lessons where students engage with familial, communal, personal, cultural or historical artifacts.
Facilitated by Anna Schick, former secondary ELA teacher and current graduate student in Literacy Education at the University of Minnesota
