Blog Entry: Teaching the Levees Blog

by Gary Natriello - November 07, 2007

Educators at all levels using Hurricane Katrina and the New Orleans recovery as a case to examine race and poverty in the United States will find a wealth of ideas in Ellen Livingston’s new blog for the Teaching the Levees project.  

Recent entries have covered the events directly connected to New Orleans, such as the visit of Mikhail Gorbachev to the Lower Ninth Ward, as well as those that raise related issues of race and class in the U.S., such as the rally in support of the Jena 6.

The blog is designed to support educators using the Spike Lee’s HBO film, When the Levees Broke and the curriculum designed to support use of the film in classrooms.
