Resources for Educators
Bringing our stories, and the stories of others around the world who have been similarly affected by political violence, terrorism and war, to a wider audience is one of the goals of this web site, 911 Stories: Our Voices, Our Choices. In the critical year leading up to the tenth commemoration of the September 11th attacks, it will provide a key opportunity to revisit the paths that could have been taken in the days after 9/11. How could we have responded differently? What could 9/11 families, and citizens around the world, have taught us about their experiences of terrorism, political violence and war? What choices could we have made, and what choices can we make today, to create peaceful tomorrows for everyone?
As our inventory of stories grows and takes shape with regular updates throughout the year leading up to 9/11/11, we welcome the participation of educators at all levels. We hope that this web site will inspire critical thinking among your students, and that you will use our content for writing assignments, curricula, and projects around the topic of 9/11. We’ll share some of your ideas here, and hope that they will encourage new conversations among teachers as well as students at this critical time.
