Teaching 9/11

If you have not yet decided on how or if you will teach about September 11th in your middle or high school classroom, you may want to visit the resources available on the 9/11 Tribute Center website. The site features an educational toolkit that provides an excellent introduction to understanding the impact of 9/11 for secondary education students.

The centerpiece of the kit is a handful of video stories of people who were deeply affected by the attacks of 9/11. These individuals reveal how they responded to 9/11 with humanitarian initiatives that strengthened their communities. You will also find some helpful written materials on the site. The videos, however, are the real gift of this website as students of all abilities (even those with limited background knowledge on the day) will be able to learn from these powerful narratives.
