Tributes beyond Words: Art Educators' Use of Textiles to Memorialize the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire
Mercurio, Mia Lynn; Randall, Régine
Journal for Learning through the Arts, v12 n1 2016
Through the study of The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, pre-service art teachers learn the about interdisciplinary design and the importance of using discipline-specific literacy strategies alongside the materials and methods of their craft. The creativity and enthusiasm with which these preservice teachers approached the work convinced us that some type of "art-making" in any content area classroom can be a valuable way for students to construct meaning from text.
