Description

In September 2007, through a generous collaboration between The Rockefeller Foundation, Teachers College and HBO, 30,000 copies of a new curriculum package addressing the issues of citizenship, race, class and poverty raised in the aftermath of Katrina were distributed to school, college and community educators. The package included a copy of Spike Lee and HBO's epic documentary, ""When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts,"" as well the highly acclaimed multidisciplinary curriculum guide, ""Teaching The Levees"". Due to the continued immense demand for this resource, the accompanying curriculum guide is now available for purchase. ""Teaching The Levees"", developed by faculty at Teachers College, Columbia University, includes chapters on history, media literacy, civics, economics and geography. In addition, the guide provides resources, such as a detailed timeline of the unfolding of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, as well as a map of the New Orleans levee system.
