Teaching 9-11
Help students make sense of 9/11.
GRADE LEVEL: K-12, Advanced


The Clarke Center at Dickinson College has posted this Web site as a resource for teachers who want to help their students understand the events of September 11, 2001.
The site has an attractive, clean-cut format that uses few graphics.
Educational content is organized into topical categories with the links displayed on the right side of the pages. Each category has its own menu of links displayed as an index.
Teachers will find this site a rich resource for helping students understand the tragic events of 9/11. Lesson plans for grades K-5, 6-8, and 9-12 are available as well as syllabi for college and university courses. Resources include essays, background information, news, speeches, and more. A collection of links to help students develop a better understanding of Islamic culture, religion, and ethnicity is offered. A message board offers users the opportunity to share insights and resources, photo and art exhibits, biographies, and memorials. This site has all the materials necessary to plan an entire unit.
