Discovering Paterson: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Teaching History and English Literature

Enhancement of required undergraduate humanities courses at Passaic County Community College through engagement with local cultural organizations in Paterson, New Jersey.

Passaic County Community College’s proposed project entitled "Discovering Paterson: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Teaching History and English Literature" will improve coursework in History and English Literature by integrating important themes such as Industrialization, the Abolitionist Movement, and Immigration into course content. Using the early industrial city of Paterson, New Jersey, as a context, students enrolled in U.S. History I, U.S. History II, and English Literature will learn about key historical, social, and literary movements. The project is significant because it extends learning beyond the classroom environment while connecting students with vast historical, cultural, and literary resources in the surrounding community. Key partner organizations will include the Passaic County Historical Society, the Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park, the Paterson Public Library, the American Labor Museum, and the Paterson Poetry Center.
