A variety of materials are available from the National September 11 Memorial and Museum to help teachers address issues surrounding 9/11 with students of different ages, including teaching guides on Tribute Art and volunteerism, as well as a list of FAQs and answers that can inform lessons or be shared with students. For students, there is a timeline, a history of the World Trade Center, and information about the rescue and recovery efforts which took place. The site also offers information about the Memorial and Museum.
In a website designed for use by students and teachers in grades five through twelve, eight people who were directly affected by the attacks on September 11, 2001 tell their stories of how the events of that day changed their lives. Each of their videos is accompanied by an activity to help students connect and reflect on the tragedy and a brief biography of the speaker, as well as a timeline, a list of further resources, and suggestions for service projects. The site also provides a guide to the material, and some thoughts about how to address this sensitive subject in the classroom.
