A three-year project to develop an interdisciplinary middle school curriculum, with related print- and web-based materials, on Hartford's history as preserved in its built environment.

The Hartford Connection is an interdisciplinary, cultural heritage education program focusing on the humanities and the arts. HC will be designed as a companion to the American history program in Connecticut's middle school classrooms. HC will serve as a standards-based, national model for the collaboration of scholars, designers, and teachers, for integrated education programs based on architecture, and for reconnecting the publication (with student and teacher editions) that pulls together lessons from multiple disciplines and multiple sources and anchors them securely in the concrete, built environment of the local landscape. Through generous illustration; carefully-selected primary sources; context minded prosel and tested, hands-on activities, HC aims to offer students an understanding of Hartford, both as a city and as a metropolitan region, both as it functions locally and as it relates to the state, the nation, and the world.
