Our students were, at most, two years old when the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks happened. What feels like a vivid memory to most of us is just a story to them. Fortunately, we have excellent resources to teach students about the 9/11 attacks and the repercussions that we’re still experiencing fifteen years later.
