Museum Literacies of a Second-Grade Classroom
Eakle, A. Jonathan; Dalesio, Brooke L.
Reading Teacher, v61 n8 p604-613 May 2008
Concepts of museum literacies are introduced in this report. Information is presented for how museum literacies were initiated, designed, and produced in a second-grade classroom. Findings show how participants took up museum literacies differently, including their uses of printed texts and other communicative forms. Two short case studies are presented that suggest how museum literacies can be engaging and transforming for students. Suggestions of how to use museum literacies are provided for educators, online museum resources are included. These practices suggest creative possibilities to teach literacies while covering subject area content and addressing school curricular standards. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
