In honor of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, I have created a unit of three poems, a video, and a number of iconic images from that day as well as a TPCASTT poem analysis .pdf for students to analyze three beautiful poems that represent that tragic day very well.
I teach seventh grade, and this is the first year that not one single student that I have was alive on that day. The video that is included can also be found on youtube - but in my opinion it is by far the most poignant 9-11 tribute video that encapsulates the timeline of all the events as well as the shift that occurred in our country from the tragedy.
I use this video and poems as a starting point for teaching students how to write powerfully about hard or sad things as well as a powerful testimony of resilience, perseverance, and bravery.
