Bringing sloyd into the American English Language Arts classroom: Explanations and possibilities
This research focuses on the history, principles, and methods of sloyd, a handicraft education system used predominantly in the Nordic countries. Through my study abroad in Finland in 2018, I had first-hand experience with the system and saw the benefits for teachers, students, and myself. This learning inspired me to bring this knowledge into an American English Language Arts context, specifically through the teaching and composition of zines.
Honors thesis completed in spring 2019.
