The artifacts that will be shared and discussed in this session include student-designed and medieval-inspired manuscript pages; replica medieval dice for teaching the Pardoner's Tale; math tools for use in teaching the Shipman's Tale; and a sheep's fleece and the wool combed and spun from it. We invite colleagues to join in the conversation and share additional ideas for tactile teaching. Susan Yager
