The excavation of the shipwreck La Belle grabbed public attention in Texas, across the nation, and overseas. Especially enthralled with the discoveries from the ship were schoolchildren. Pam Wheat-Stranahan, named by the Texas Historical Commission to head the educational efforts associated with the excavation's traveling exhibit, continued her work on this project after leaving the THC. Now, her teacher's guide, which includes a DVD of acclaimed documentary director Alan Govenar's films "The Shipwreck of La Belle" and "Dreams of Conquest" (about Fort St. Louis and Presidio La Bahia), is available for use in an exploration and discovery unit. Ideal for grades 4-8, the teacher's guide and films are designed for use with the book "From a Watery Grave". Wheat-Stranahan has incorporated the standards for national social studies and the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. The resulting guide is user-friendly for teachers and provides interactive learning opportunities for students not just about Texas history but also concerning the age of discovery and the precursors to the American nation.
