Welcome. . .
to Heritage Education Update, a newsletter providing information about heritage education in Louisiana and throughout the nation.
The Heritage Education Initiative is an endeavor of the National Park Service to bring the American experience alive to our children, creating an appreciation and understanding of the peoples, places and traditions that have shaped our nation, through innovative methods of teaching and learning.
Heritage Education–Louisiana is the pilot program for this national initiative which encourages the use of local resources such as archeological sites, historic structures, and cultural landscapes in developing curriculum-based lessons and activities for students and fostering an appreciation of shared history and heritage.
This issue introduces one of the teachers who helped develop the program, offers tips for a cemetery visit, and provides information about other heritage education activities and programs.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for this newsletter, please let us know.
