Louisiana in World War II Teacher Workshop
Visit the Museum for a resource-packed workshop focusing on strategies for teaching middle and high school students about the role Louisiana and its citizens played during World War II. The program will kick off with a guided tour of the Museum’s special exhibit, The Pelican State Goes to War: Louisiana in World War II, followed by a session introducing innovative ideas for helping students analyze Louisiana-related documents, photos, and other primary sources.
