Dodwell Community Newsletter
The Dodwell House
Dodwell House will be the proud home of Oportunidades Nola, an adult education and outreach center which brings educational opportunities and other resources to the Latino community, promotes the successful integration of immigrants into the greater New Orleans society, and reduces barriers resulting from language, culture and race. They are committed to education as the best means for promoting social justice, empowering the disadvantaged and realizing the fullness of human potential.
Anna’s Arts for Kids
Dodwell House is the future home of Anna’s Arts for Kids, a weekly after-school program that emphasizes the exploration and discovery of analogies, relationships and metaphors. Their approach requires students to apply the process of inquiry and integrate specific disciplinary skills and knowledge into a broader context. Innovative interdisciplinary teaching begins with questions, unites teachers and students as learners and investigators, and makes innovative use of community resources.
