Learning About 9/11: Education Curriculum for High School Seniors
As we mark the 20th anniversary of September 11, we know there is an entire generation of young people who were either too young or not even born yet in 2001. To continue teaching the lessons of that day, we, the Massachusetts 9/11 families, have created an education module geared toward high school students that explains how events unfolded and life changed for everyone on September 11, 2001. To preview this important education tool and view the remote learning video program and accompanying teaching materials please click here. We also invite you to view the impact of this unique learning tool recently featured on NBC10/Boston.
