Valuing Stuff: Materials Culture and Artifactual Literacies in the Classroom
Randall, Régine; Mercurio, Mia Lynn
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v59 n3 p319-327 Nov 2015
Recent interest in materials culture and artifactual literacies has helped the authors of this article rethink how they teach preservice and inservice teachers and collaborate with K-12 teachers. Each discipline has its own stuff that can help students understand the products and practices of a field beyond what they might be able to glean from text. To that end, every teacher should see their classroom and content area as a "place for my stuff" because objects speak and communicate more messages through form, color, size, and texture than print alone.
