This more an FYI than anything else. 🙂
Teaching the Levees is an AMAZING teacher’s resource for introducing discussions of race, class, and gender in the classroom. While the DVD focuses on the events surrounding Hurricane Katrina, its historical component and other supplementary resources make it clear that the events in question are not without context or politics. The website www.teachingthelevees.org includes a timeline, maps, AND what looks like a really neat, searchable blog.
