Learning About 9/11
Learning About September 11th
The 9/11 Tribute Center has created an educational toolkit, September 11th: Personal Stories of Transformation, that provides an excellent introduction to understanding the impact of 9/11 for middle and high school students. Eight interactive video stories of people who were deeply affected by the attacks of 9/11 reveal how they responded with humanitarian initiatives that strengthened their local and global communities. These stories encourage an understanding of the facts of this contemporary history and a focus on the extraordinary civic response by many who experienced loss.
In addition to multimedia stories, the toolkit includes thought-provoking questions to classroom discussion, vocabulary definitions, bibliographies, and suggestions for community service projects.
September 11th: Personal Stories of Transformation is also available as a free DVD-ROM. If you would like a copy sent to your school, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, name of school, grade of students, and address of school.
