Massachusetts Studies Project is an outreach project
for educators and students located at the Joseph P. Healey Library at the University
of Massachusetts Boston. Its mission is to ground students in
their own communities by localizing the curriculum.
The MSP supports education reform to enhance lifelong
learning in three ways:
information and curriculum materials through databases
on the World Wide Web that encourage community research
and involvement in relevant experiences;
- professional development
training for teachers to integrate technology and
relate resources to curriculum frameworks;
- development of instructional
materials and resources where not already available.
