Teaching and Remembering September 11th

September 11, 2018The Nearpod Team

Why is it important to build community on a national level? September 11 helps us answer this question and more. It serves as a date to practice coming together as one country and commemorating those affected by the tragic events of the September 11 attacks.

Provide students with an opportunity to learn about 9/11 beyond the historical facts, as they examine the different communities affected and how we remember their legacy while providing a safe space to reflect on the cultural and social significance of the event.

These lessons provide a safe space to reflect on the cultural and social significance of Patriot Day.

By the end of the lessons,  students can:

  • Understand and describe some general narratives and practices surrounding September 11th.
  • Reflect on the significance of September 11th for communities who celebrate.
