Curriculum Materials Center Celebrates Some New Additions

A new textbook series and die-cutting machine are added to the expanding collection of educational resources.

A few of the newly acquired textbooks.

The Curriculum Material Center (CMC) recently added a textbook series to its expanding collection of educational resources.  This year the Albert Payson Terhune Foundation supported the purchase of a textbook series designed to teach writing skills to students from kindergarten through grade eight. This textbook series supplements the purchases of previous grants from the Terhune Foundation that also focused on teaching writing through the use of mentor texts (juvenile books that model the elements of writing).

Together these grants provide a variety of instructional resources to assist students in the teacher education program. The CMC greatly appreciates the continuing grant support of the Albert Payson Terhune Foundation.

For more information about these materials, please contact Yvonne Roux at 973-720-3184 or

A second addition to the CMC is a Cricut (pronounced cricket), a computerized die-cutting machine. The Cricut is designed to cut out many varieties of letters and shapes to create attractive posters, bulletin boards and displays. The staff of the CMC have created displays with examples of the types of images that can be created with the Cricut.

The Cricut is available to all  William Paterson University students, faculty and staff.  Please make an appointment to use the Cricut by contacting Patricia Moore at 973-720-2174 or
