Product Description
About
I developed this lesson plan when I discovered that my students (not yet born when 9/11 happened) knew about the events of that horrible day, but had no understanding of the enormous impact those events have had (and continue to have) on our everyday lives. They viewed it as a tragic event that was far removed from their own lives. Yet for many adults, we can point to September 11 as a clear before-and-after marker for our generation. Through this 2-day lesson, students collaborate with a small group to become an expert about one of the main elements of post-9/11 change. They then share their knowledge with their classmates. Students are much more engaged when learning in this “Jigsaw” method. They walk away from the lesson with a new appreciation for the impact of September 11 on all of our lives.

Highlights
✔ Gather information from multiple sources
✔ Explore the idea of what it means to live in a “Post-9/11 World”
✔ Understand the long-term impact of 9/11 on America
✔ Present and receive information in a “Jigsaw” method which gives students a
chance to practice valuable speaking and listening skills

- Students will contrast life before and after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
