9. Building Bridges: A Peace Corps Classroom Guide to Cross-Cultural
Understanding
http://www.peacecorps.gov/wws/bridges/index.html

Established by the Coverdell World Wise Schools program of the Peace
Corps,
Building Bridges is a 48-page workbook containing 13 lessons plans
created
to introduce school children to cultural studies in order to increase
their
awareness of other cultures around the world, as well as their own.
Designed
primarily for grades 6-12, the workbook is free for downloading and
could be
of value to social studies, geography, and language arts teachers. Also
available on the site are four other publications produced by the Peace
Corps: _Insights from the Field: Understanding Geography, Culture, and
Service_; _Culture Matters: The Peace Corps Cross-Cultural Workbook_;
_Voices from the Field: Reading and Writing About the World, Ourselves,
and
Others_; and _Looking at Ourselves and Others_. All publications are
available to the Internet community for free downloading. [MG]

12. The Louisiana State Museum Photograph Collection
http://www.lsu.edu/diglib/

The Louisiana State Museum Photograph Collection consists of
approximately
1500 photographs detailing the people, folkways, traditions, and
landscape
of Louisiana. The pictures date from the mid-1850s to the early 1920s
and
document the work of several well-known photographers of the period,
including Covert, who was commissioned by the New Orleans Chamber of
Commerce in 1917 to create a visual record of the civic, commercial, and
industrial conditions in the warehouse district of the city. Along with
his
images, there are numerous stereographic views of New Orleans,
plantations
throughout the state, rural life, and the French Quarter. The photograph
database is searchable in a variety of ways, including photograph title,
photographer, subject, and keywords. Overall, persons with an interest
in
material culture and urban history will find this site quite compelling,
and
a valuable place for getting the feel and look of late 19th century
Louisiana. [KM]
