This week we observe the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. My goal is that all students will know the background of Katrina, including

* Chronology of the storm
* Reasons for the flooding
* Elevations in New Orleans
* Poverty in the Crescent City
* Map of NO
* Coastal deterioration factors
* Corps of Engineers and the Mississippi levees

Ex: compare the basic facts of Hurricane Katrina and the Galveston, Tx, hurricane of 1900.
