New Orleans: Highlights & More

New Orleans is different in so many ways: its history, culture, music and food set it apart from just about any other city in America. Join your teacher Libby Bollino as she introduces you to her beloved city in both classroom sessions and during field trips to some of the sites that reflect all that’s unique about the city including the French Quarter, Garden District and its famous cemeteries.

Libby is a gifted storyteller, so you’ll not only learn about and experience the city of New Orleans first-hand, you’ll also be entertained along the way!

 

Maria, a recent Learning Across America student, created this video to share her impressions of New Orleans and the experiences she enjoyed there with her friends and classmates.
