Dodge Grant Schools to Work in Conjunction with Smithsonian Learning Lab Team on a New Grant Project
This year the four Geraldine R. Dodge-funded Arts Integration schools in Paterson have also received a grant from the Smithsonian Learning Lab.
A team of William Paterson University (WP) and Rutgers University have begun meeting with a team from the Smithsonian Learning Lab and with faculty and staff from WP before the 2020-2021 school year gets underway to plan the scope and implementation of this project. Future meetings will include administrators and/or teachers from the Paterson Schools.
This new grant funding aims to increase awareness of the Asian Pacific countries and their cultures. The focus will include: social and emotional learning, cultural diversity, arts integration and culturally responsive teaching pedagogy.
Stay tuned as this for coming developments!
