Hurricane Resources and Opportunities for K-12 Educators
In the Wake of the Hurricane, 5-12th grade
The In the Wake of the Hurricane unit is an effort by Louisiana Voices to provide 5-12th grade teachers with materials that can assist them and their students in coping with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita. The unit involves teaching students to interview each other, community members, and family members about the experiences of the hurricanes and their aftermath. The activities are designed to allow teachers great flexibility and easy to use.

Art Lesson Plans
Working with Denise Tullier-Holly who is an Art educator at the Southeastern Louisiana University Laboratory School in Hammond, we are able to provide three art lesson plans and sample work. These are outstanding lessons that can also assist you in working with your students on this important topic.
