Personalizing the stories and legacies of September 11

A workshop for educators, in partnership with Tribute WTC Visitor Center.

How can teachers use the personal stories of 9/11 to foster empathy and help students understand the impact of 9/11 on their lives?

Participants will:

Explore key topics related to the events of 9/11 and its aftermath.
Learn from teachers who have connected 9/11 to different subject areas in the curriculum.
Interact with artifacts and first-person history at the Tribute WTC Visitor Center.
Examine resources and methods from Facing History and Ourselves for teaching this contemporary history, including issues such as civil liberties, national loyalty, and religious identity in the wake of violence.
Experience a guided visit of the 9/11 Memorial and discuss how to contextualize the 9/11 Memorial for your students.
Develop a project that will allow students to become the transmitters of this history in their school community and act as agents of change.
Space is limited. Registration does not guarantee a space in this workshop. $50 registration fee includes lunch and materials.
