The Teaching American History grant from the U.S. Department of Education has been the bread-and-butter program for the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities over the years. These grants totaled $2 million for Caddo Parish since 2005, and touched 370 teachers. LEH president Michael Sartisky said the current group of teachers will be the last ones through the program.</p> Tue, 04 Jun 2013 13:53:04 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 28594 at http://redriverradio.org Louisiana's digital encyclopedia gives QR codes to hundreds of artist entries http://redriverradio.org/post/louisianas-digital-encyclopedia-gives-qr-codes-hundreds-artist-entries <p>The Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities has added a new feature to its expanding digital encyclopedia of Louisiana history and culture -- KnowLA.
