Hurricane Katrina Part II
in this section you will see some of the Big Question we have developed for
this unit. These Big Questions guide student research and cause a need for
the information, the skills, and knowledge of the disciplines. We also have
examples of ways to teach multiple literacies for the 21st century in this
unit, and a brief discussion of critical pedagogy and social issues.

- this is where you will see examples of
many connections to the disciplines, starter lists for resources, and a
brief outline of the brainstorming a theme process.
Katrina Part III
2006 - By the time
Hurricane Katrina hit I knew that this would be an important theme for the
classroom. Within a couple of days, as we witnessed the growing horrors, I
knew it would be imperative. This unit is appropriate and adaptable to any
grade level, from PreK through PhD.
I began by
brainstorming what could be done with the theme. What disciplines were
relevant? What kinds of projects could students do that were rigorous and
relevant? The unit had to have certain
attributes, the top three being that it was
integrated, interdisciplinary and
presentations above offer some ideas, and though what we have here is enough
to keep anyone busy for years, we also know that much more can be added. I
believe you will enjoy taking a look at these ideas and suggestions.
