Louisiana Teacher's Lesson Ideas

Each one of us from time to time needs a 'little something' to boost our class. The following simple lesson ideas are designed to lead into or re-enforce a lesson idea. Since not all of our books are from the same vendors, I decided to list them by time periods. If you have a lesson idea, play, or hands-on assignment that you like, send us a copy to help other teachers around the state. Remember that the material shared here is only a guide. None are perfect solutions for every problem or every classroom.

 AND AND     AND   

Go together along with many other websites to bring you some of the most fascinating and useful products for teaching Louisiana history  anywhere. I tend to search books, magazines, and these sites almost daily in the effort to find something new and interesting for my students and then I offer it to you. Be sure to check the MENU on the left for many other ideas, topics, and sources.

Every wonder how you can get students involved in history? Through music. This list is all about past songs that talk - or sings - about history. My all-time favorite is Acadian Driftwood by the Band about the deportation of Acadians in 1755 by the British from what is now Nova Scotia. There are also songs about the Civil War, World War II, and others.

 

"The Band- “Acadian Driftwood” Tells the story of the forced migration of the Acadians away from Nova Scotia by the British"
