|"Belizaire the Cajun"
former Louisiana History teacher at Oak
Park Middle School
"I have known Gerry for many years
and she was the best at what she taught. She always knew more trivia about
Louisiana than anyone I had ever talked to. When she retired she began
to clear everything out of her classroom. I bargained and begged for all
the old notes, worksheets, lesson ideas, nic-nacs - everything. The goal
was to get all this wealth of lesson material uploaded. Two years later
I finally got around to it. Most of her worksheets need no explanation
and I have included her own handwritten answer sheets where available.
She also was a packrat for resource material with thousands of newspaper
clippings, special editions, and old books. I will try to put most of her
collection online over the next few months."
Many of us use the movie Belizaire
the Cajun. In the first year of the movie, back in 1985, there was
a teacher's Guide available. Gerry saved it and it is posted here for those
who didn't get it or lost it.
