Hurricanes begin the lessons we teach
because they are a fact of life and a "real-Life" skill here in south
Louisiana. Just think about Audrey, Andrew, Katrina, Rita, Gustav, and
Students created 3-D models of
a Hurricane along with learning to plot one from beginning to end.
Sometimes they even do it in Legos.
Geography consists of learning all 64
parishes but in a unique way by creating their own poster-board map.
They also learn which parishes are farther north, larger, have more
highways, and much more.
Acting out parts of a play while learning
about the first women to arrive in the colony in 1704 is another way to
get students actively involved in their own learning.
They sing songs,
watch videos "on the big screen", and get involved then they ever
thought was possible.
We have also been visited by Senators,
Mayors, DAs, Movie Actors, Governors, and local and state Beauty Queens
who all have their own stories to tell.
I've even been featured on local TV as the
"Louisiana man" being interview by John Bridges, KPLC TVs own Louisiana
He and his wife even own a 1870 farm house
in Cameron Parish he is restoring.
