9/11

09-Sep-2011

This Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of 9/11.  With the impact of the event felt the world over students are often ready to talk at length about their impressions.  It can make for a good discussion lesson that challenges your students to find the words to voice their feelings about the day.  A great jumping off point can be this infographic-

It provides a wealth of information about plans for the area where the World Trade Centres stood.  If you are struggling to think of any discussion questions to ask your students then try the following; do they remember where they were when they found out about the event?  What do they think should have happened to ground zero? Have any lessons been learnt from that day?
