Commemorate 22 Years of Never Forgetting

September 11, 2001

A Time for Unity

Coming together as a class to honor those we lost and the selfless heroes of the day can lead to profound lessons in empathy and unity.

NEW Lesson: Health Impact & Advocacy

Help students understand the long term impacts of the 9/11 attacks and rescues on the physical and mental health conditions for first responders, survivors, people living near the World Trade Center, and those involved in rescue, recovery, and clean-up activities

Students will use personal narratives, health statistics, photos, and videos to learn about the continuing physical and mental health effects from the 9/11 attacks.

Complete an advocacy activity to help students demonstrate their knowledge and advocate on behalf of those affected.

Tell the Story of 9/11 through Media, Texts, and Oral History

The September 11th Education Program is designed to help you teach this sensitive subject in a way that’s relevant to your students. 

The program is available in print and as part of Active Classroom, a digital platform featuring courses, interactive activities, and assignment and grading tools.
