Teachers Institute 2012: Teaching Louisiana Statehood
The West Baton Rouge Museum's 2012 Teachers Institute explored the state's path to statehood through field trips, lectures, hands-on colonial cooking and crafts, music and lesson plans. The three-day Teachers Institute, in its sixth year and endorsed by the West Baton Rouge Parish Schools, was held July 17, 18, 19, 2012.
