Education Websites Offer 9/11 Materials for Teachers

Looking for resources to teach September 11 in the classroom?

Teachers looking for materials to help them with lesson plans on the September 11 terrorist attacks can find plenty of content on the Internet, said Valerie Strauss of The Washington Post. 

In the Post article, Strauss shares that teachers can visit the website of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, the New York City schools website, the National History Clearing House at George Mason University and other sites for useful information.

The U.S. Department of Education offers a list of resources on its website, as well as a disclaimer stating that the materials "were developed by federal grantees and agencies in commemoration of the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001."

"The materials are provided as a convenience for teachers and others seeking resources for teaching about September 11," said the site. "ED does not control or guarantee the accuracy, relevance, timeliness, or completeness of these materials, nor does the inclusion of links to these materials represent an endorsement of these materials or organizations that created them."

The Department of Ed site offers a number of lessons including 9/11 and Constitution Day, good citizenship, and resources across the web teachers can use to teach 9/11.

Since most students today don't recollect the events of September 2001, it's important to help guide students through the large quantity of information (some of which can be disturbing for young children) and help them understand its context. EducationWorld is among those who offer a number of 9/11 teaching resources. From books to videosEducationWorld offers approaches and background information for educators to teach and commemorate the thirteenth anniversary of September 11 in their classrooms.
