Teaching 9/11 in the Classroom
Today at 11am
It's been fifteen years since the terrorist attacks of September 11th. Most of today’s students were not yet born or were too young to remember that day’s tragic events. That means many of them will learn about the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in a classroom, which can be challenging subject matter for teachers.
