Inspired by a recent feature on The Guardian website, which invites readers to share their memories of where they were and what they were doing (click here for more detail), I was thinking about collating teaching resources on the topic and presenting them here.
Turns out Larry Ferlazzo‘s beaten me to it…
His latest post: “Even more 9/11 resources” has materials from the Wall Street Journal and New York Times – as well as from the US Department of Education.
But honestly, his post “The Best Sites to Help Teach About 9/11” has links to just about every 9/11 related teaching resource that’s out there. If you’re planning to use this topic area with your classes – make it your starting point.
There’s also a really interesting piece on the OUP blog by Mary Dudziak on the impact September 11th has made on the classroom – read more at “How 9/11 made history“. Thanks for @OUPAcademic for tweeting the link.

While browsing The Learning Network (NYTimes) the other I came across this amazing documentary made by a New York City firefighter – ‘Brothers on Holy Ground’ http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/08/30/film-festival-documentaries-about-911/
