Learning About 9/11: Education Curriculum for High School Seniors

As the events of 9/11 grow more distant, we remind ourselves that there is a whole generation of young people who were either too young or not even born yet in 2001.

We, the families of the Mass 911 Fund, have created a remote learning education curriculum geared toward high school students that explains what happened and how life changed for everyone on September 11, 2001.

For a preview of this important education tool and to view the remote learning video program and accompanying teaching materials please click here.

If you have any questions or would like family members to speak to your students, please email us at education@massfund.org.

 



Annual Mass 9/11 Commemoration

The families of the Massachusetts 9/11 Fund are pleased to announce our annual September 11 Commemoration will be held in person this year at the

John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston. We will also be streaming the service live with pre-recorded events, including the annual wreath-laying at the Garden of Remembrance 9/11 Memorial in the Boston Public Garden.

This year our theme is resilience as we mark 20 years since the 9/11 attacks changed our lives forever. An unwelcome milestone but a poignant time for families and friends to reflect and share intimate stories of resilience with our audiences.

We will provide a link to the live streaming in the coming weeks. We hope you will join us as we mark this important day. In the meantime, you can watch the 2020, 19th Annual Mass 9/11 Commemoration Ceremony from the Massachusetts Statehouse

We also invite you to explore our education curriculum geared toward high school students that explains what happened and how life changed for everyone 20 years ago on September 11, 2001.
