Misc. Items

"Huey Long on Education"

Gerry Doyle
former Louisiana History teacher at Oak Park Middle School

"I have known Gerry for many years and she was the best at what she taught. She always knew more trivia about Louisiana than anyone I had ever talked to. When she retired she began to clear everything out of her classroom. I bargained and begged for all the old notes, worksheets, lesson ideas, nic-nacs - everything. The goal was to get all this wealth of lesson material uploaded. Two years later I finally got around to it. Most of her worksheets need no explanation and I have included her own handwritten answer sheets where available. She also was a packrat for resource material with thousands of newspaper clippings, special editions, and old books. I will try to put most of her collection online over the next few months." 

Gerry had a love of teaching about Huey Long and she saved everything she found on him. These pages are from a magazine called Louisiana Schools, May 1976. Those pages are repoduced here:
