Description and Purpose

Based on the premise that images and objects can sometimes be more evocative than text, 'Artifacts' uses visual representations and handheld items to arouse curiosity, stimulate ideas, and focus students when introducing a topic. Teachers provide groups of students with photos, specimens, charts, graphs, drawings, or objects that represent key ideas about a topic.  Students then discuss the items in relation to instructor-designed prompts.
