Louisiana Purchase: Louisiana Pedagogy Utilizing Resources for Challenging History and Achieving Student Excellence

Through this project, East Baton Rouge will contract with Louisiana State University (LSU) to provide summer institutes to train additional American history teachers in the use of document-rich, active methods for engaging students in history. Faculty from LSU, Southern University, and Tulane University will serve as summer institute faculty. The project will also provide support for teaching consultants who will build upon the work of the summer institutes. Teacher consultants will attend in-service staff development workshops and local regional and national conferences to obtain additional training on reaching out to their peers. In addition to LSU, the district is also partnering with the Historic New Orleans Collection, The Louisiana State Museum, and the Louisiana State Archives, and the Digital Library housed at LSU.
