"Boatlift, An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience" Documentary Assessment and Resources
Grades 5-12—25+ Pages!
This product consists of a 3-page Assessment for the Short Documentary “Boatlift: An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience” which recounts the Great Boatlift of 9/11—an impromptu rescue evacuation of Lower Manhattan. I have also included a Timeline of the Terror Attacks and a Map Skills Assessment. Answer keys are provided for the short answer questions of both Assessments. There are also many graphic organizers and activities to assist with teaching about one of the most important events in US History.
I have provided a link to my Pinterest Board where there are further links to the Docudrama. You only need to watch the Docudrama to complete the 3-page Assessment. The Map Skills Assessment comes with a stand-alone Timeline of Events and Diagram. All the others resources do not have to be used with the Documentary.
I have successfully implemented this set of assessments and activities with my Middle School students. Remember to review all materials before teaching and know you audience. This can be a very emotional lesson.
