Louisiana Sea Grant Seeks High School Teachers in Coastal Parishes for Oral History Project
April 27 , 2012
Louisiana Sea Grant would like to work with teams of two to three high school teachers from coastal parishes to collaborate in creating oral histories conducted by their students during the 2012-2013 school year. The students’ oral histories will focus on the challenges of living in coastal communities where sea level rise, wetland loss and a continuously changing environment affect coastal communities, their people and their culture.
Sea Grant will provide the equipment needed to complete the project, workshops in best practices of conducting oral histories, training for students and teachers on the equipment, and assistance where needed. This interdisciplinary project will meet several GLEs across the curriculum and will provide a small stipend for teachers.
For more information about the project, contact Darcy Wilkins, research associate for the Louisiana Sea Grant Oral History Project at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 225.578.5932.
