July 9 and 10, 2013

What do your students know about 9/11? Where do they get their information on this pivotal event in U.S. and world history?
Get ideas and resources for introducing 9/11 in your middle school or high school classroom.
This interactive workshop suggests how to integrate 9/11 into the Core Curriculum. Educators from the presenting organizations as well as Brown University’s “Choices” program will suggest ways to teach the facts of 9/11, its aftermath, and the impact of terrorism on our world.
Primary source materials as well as multimedia and print teaching materials, will be provided.
"I had many parents thank me for informing my students on such an important topic, both surrounding the events of September 11th and the current issues we still face. I don't think I would have had the courage to teach these topics without having experienced your workshop."
Registration Fee $50.00 (Includes two lunches, "Responding to Terrorism" teacher’s manual and student workbook from Choices, Brown University, and 9/11 Tribute Center materials)

What teachers have said about these sessions:
"This workshop provided strategies to approach the subject in a non-threatening manner. I also believe that by involving students in a service project they could emulate the volunteerism of 9/11."
"I'm leaving with the knowledge that there are so many different lenses through which 9/11 can be viewed - enough, in fact, for each subject to approach it in its own way. My attention has also shifted from the negativity and devastation of 9/11 to the good that has come out of the tragedy."
"...great resources and great ideas. I am thinking of essential questions, lesson plans for using personal histories in the classroom. I'm leaving today with a renewed passion for teaching this and desire to have the whole school teach this."
