If you are an ELA teacher and include a recognition of 9/11 in your classroom, this is a powerful resource. 3 poems about the event are included ("Two Thousand One, Nine Eleven" by Paul Spreadbury, "Photograph from September 11" by Wislawa Szymborska, and "List of 'Don't Forgets' and 'Remembers.') Short answer comprehension and analysis questions encourage students to close read, look for tone and mood, and review historical events. This could be used for U.S. History, ELA, or any other course wishing to recognize the events of 9/11.
