The project immerses middle school teachers, and when possible their students, into real world scientific data-gathering activities at three local research sites (Black Bayou Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Restoration Park, and Poverty Point State Historic Site), and then bring these data back into the classroom through inquiry-based activities that supplement the comprehensive curriculum and adhere to grade level expectations.

CEHD Culture Connection - Ongoing
The University of Louisiana at Monroe has one of the most diverse student populations in the state and is rapidly gaining a reputation as a university with strong and caring support for international students.
The College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) proudly announces the home of a new space on campus, the CEHD Culture Connection to be used by all ULM students and faculty.
Supported by a Board of Regents Enhancement grant, the Culture Connection is located on the first floor of Strauss Hall in the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) on the University of Louisiana campus.
The CEHD Culture Connection consists of a social space for international students and culture-related events (I-Space), a satellite of the main ULM Library devoted to PK-16+ multicultural literature and resources (Multicultural Library), and a Video Production Studio to capture personal narratives and local culture.
International Meeting Space (I-Space): A comfortable meeting space with a smart TV, international cable, and a refrigerator filled with snacks, the I-Space is open Monday through Friday 8:00 to 6:00 and on weekends for soccer matches and other international broadcasts or events.
To see upcoming events visit: CCC events calendar
Multicultural Library: Situated next to the I-Space lounge, the Multicultural Library features a wide variety of PK-16+ literature relating to different cultural perspectives. Supported by a generous grant from Carmel Hill Fund and donations from the community, the library has books available for check out through the ULM main Library.
Video Production Studio: The video production studio has a green screen and dual platform video-editing lab to capture and share diverse perspectives from our college and community through video narratives. In particular we are hoping to collect oral histories that tell the unique stories of our community and local culture.
