Learning About 9/11
Learning About September 11th
The 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. The toolkit, available for free online, features 8 interactive video stories of people who were deeply affected by the attacks of 9/11 and who responded with humanitarian initiatives that strengthen their local and global communities. The toolkit, like the rest of Tribute's educational materials, 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. The toolkit lessons give students an opportunity to utilize primary source materials in print and media and to learn how to conduct oral histories.
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.
