Will Your Charge's School be Honoring the Tenth Anniversary of 9/11?
The goal of making the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks an age-appropriate teachable moment in American history is especially difficult for teachers in the Greater New York, Washington D.C., and near Shanksville, PA, areas, where the attacks hit home in an especially personal way for students. Click here for an article in which New York City teachers recall 9/11.
Today, my school-aged charges are asked to wear red, white, and blue to school and there will be a memorial service honoring those who were killed on 9/11 at their school.
Will the schools your charge's attend be having a special program or service in memory of 9/11?
