South Florida State College’s project, “A Sense of Home,” seeks to infuse the state’s rich and unusual history into literature, philosophy, psychology, and sociology courses. With funding from the NEH, the College is bringing well-regarded experts on the history of Florida to give lectures and take part in discussions with college faculty and high school teachers. Together, these groups are creating course modules that will help teachers present a range of academic subjects while using Florida’s history as background material. The ultimate goal is to help Florida’s students develop a richer understanding of the state’s history and their place in it. The final products—teaching modules with supplementary materials—will be published and shared broadly with Florida’s academic community and will be used by college faculty and high school teachers alike.
