What do your students know about 9/11? In our Distance Learning programs, students will be given the chance to foster a connection with members of the 9/11 community and explore the history of the event through live videoconferencing.
We can work with you to provide your students with a meaningful experience with one of our Guides customized for your curriculum. Programs are adapted for many subjects including social studies, English language arts, ethics, character development, community service, and health.
Being There: Understanding History through Personal Stories
Monday-Friday, 10am – 5pm, 70 minutes
Contemporary history can be uniquely understood by the sharing of personal experiences and connecting them to a historic perspective. Through discussion with those were there, students gain a unique appreciation of history, form a personal connection with the 9/11 community, and learn about resilience and recovery. Our programs are aligned to several Common Core standards.
