PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students enjoy this lesson! I have incorporated interviews and song lyrics to get students thinking about 9/11. When I first started teaching, I could find VERY FEW resources for teaching about "that September day" soooo I decided to create my own.

This package includes student interview worksheets with specific interview directions. I use the answers they bring back to for small group and whole class discussion.

Small Group- What conclusions can you draw from the responses. Make a chart that relates the interviewee's age, response, and specific emotions. I have them do this on chart paper and share out their CONCLUSIONS about the data.

Whole Group- Do the same thing-- what conclusions can they draw. I also ask them to share any interesting interviews they had. My students could do this for an entire period.. even longer if I allowed.

The next day I would play the song "Where Were You" by Alan Jackson. I pass out the second worksheet (pg 5 and 6 in this packet). Students listen to the song and make comments on the lyrics as it plays. I usually play it twice. After that, they answer the questions about the song and interview. This activity allows for extensive discussion as well.

ENJOY  any questions please contact me nrtaylor17@gmail.com

**Depending on the maturity level of the class I may play a few tribute videos off of YouTube. There is some good stuff on there, but some INTENSE images.
