Links/Resources for Remembering September 11, 2001

The Families and Work Institute has developed a series of 16 age-appropriate
lesson plans to help educators address the 9-11 anniversary with their
students. The 9-11 As History program includes four lessons each for grades
PreK-2nd, 3rd-5th, 6th-8th, 9th-12th that are linked to national education

NEA and the NEA Health Information Network have created a special Remember September 11th Web site. This site draws on the creative inspiration of NEA members and partners in educational excellence, including NASP. It brings together in one place an abundance of ideas, lesson plans, discussion points, and much more to help young people learn from the September 11 tragedy.
