Ancient Latin American objects in the archive: selections from the George and Louise Patten collection of Salem Hyde cultural artifacts at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
Rating
0.0 stars

Early in the Spring 2020 semester, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga students in my Ancient to Modern Latin American Visual Culture Art History course embarked upon an intensive first-hand visual analysis and research project that involved working directly with original artifacts from Ancient Latin America housed within the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Library’s Special Collections. This unique opportunity and the publication of their findings were made possible thanks to the generous support and assistance of Special Collections Director Carolyn Runyon and her dedicated staff.

By examining the wide array of Pre-Columbian objects in the George and Louise Patten Salem Hyde Papers and Cultural Artifacts Collection, these upper division students formed small research groups dedicated to specific artifact types, such as human figurines, animal figurines, tools and lithics, vessels, anthropomorphic ceramics, replicas, and sherds. They carefully recorded their original observations of their selected objects of study in written field notes, photographs, and drawings. Later, they compared their initial observations with preliminary collection data developed independently by Archaeology students of Dr. Andrew Workinger, leading to further questions and insights surrounding these extraordinary pieces predominantly from pre-contact indigenous cultures of the Central and Intermediate regions of Latin America that today comprise Costa Rica, Ecuador, Panama and Colombia. Building upon their analysis, the Art History student research groups then re-examined their selected artifacts through analytical frameworks focused on Gender and the Body, Color, Pattern and Materiality, Spirituality and the Object, Form and Function, and Identity and Representation. In presenting their findings to their peers, students received feedback that allowed them to refine their analysis and develop the original individual and group catalog essays that comprise this exhibition publication. Their research sheds further light on the extraordinary value and diversity of the ancient artifacts of Latin America that uniquely form part of UTC’s Special Collections, as well as the innovative power of interdisciplinary research and collaboration.

The Big Green Monster Teaches Phonics in Reading and Writing
Read the Fine Print
Some Rights Reserved
Rating
0.0 stars

Go Away, Big Green Monster! Ed Emberley's tale about a scary, multicolored monster is used to help students build their reading fluency and word recognition skills. In this lesson, students chorally read the story and then point out familiar color words or sight words that appear in the story. After finishing the story, students are introduced to four different literacy center activities that include participating in a read along, building word families with story words, playing a memory game with color words from the story, and retelling story events using sentence strips. In the sessions that follow, students create their own artwork of the big green monster and use that artwork to help them write a story. Students use both self- and peer-editing to improve their writing. Completed stories are either published on the Internet or in a class book.

Introduction to Philosophy
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Philosophy is the best training for living. Your thoughts, your convictions, and your values all exist within a framework that has developed over time. In order to understand that framework and your place in it, we will engage in thinking about the subjects and issues presented in this class through reading, discussion, and reflection. How you live and how you prepare for death, your political views, and your religious views are all determined by your thoughts and words. Through the study of philosophy, if you take it seriously, you will come to a better understanding of yourself and this will allow you to live authentically. The subject matter of philosophy is sometimes difficult but you will find that engaging in these ways will encourage you to think more deeply and sincerely about the material. This text was remixed from a number of sources for Introduction to Philosophy with the intent to offer readers a more comprehensive and diverse selection of readings. The text is divided thematically using (mostly) the expected branches of philosophy including logic, metaphysics, epistemology, and axiology. Within each section, readings come from a broad range of writers with the intent to include thinkers not usually included in Introductory texts like women and BIPOC.
