Where were you on Sept. 11, 2001? I was a freshman in high school getting on my morning bus when I heard over the radio about the towers falling; it's a profoundly tangible memory I revisit every September.
So how do you reflect on the tragedy of 9/11 in your classroom? All of our students in preK-12 classrooms today were born after the attack. What ideas come to mind when they discuss what happened that day? Share My Lesson has an entire collection of resources from partners like the9/11 Memorial & Museumthat cover the events of that day, how we can build compassion and tolerance for others, and understanding the importance of historical memory. You can also learn about related days of service with our partner9/11 Day.
