Arts and Culture in New Orleans

While all units interweave, as with the cultural aspects of New Orleans, this unit focuses on aspects of community that are specific to New Orleans. As with the first unit, if students are entering into New Orleans community projects, their discovery/research phase will focus on that community, specific to neighborhood, but also as a whole. Readings and viewings focus on lesser-known aspects of the New Orleans community and address background for second lines, Mardi Gras, and rebuilding community.
