911 Tragedy, 9/11 Tragedy, Patriot Day, 911 Attack, September 11, 2001
This editable reading guide covers Part One of The Eleventh Day: The Full Story of 9/11 written by Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan. If you are looking to add a challenging informational or nonfiction text to your curriculum, I highly recommend this documentary-style book. The writers conducted four years of research before releasing this publication and included over 100 pages of references! This is the most extensive and well-organized compilation of the 911 attacks that I've seen.
This reading guide includes 30 questions with an answer key. These are discussion questions, so the answer key includes page numbers with answers written in full sentences. There is also an overall summary of each chapter before that chapter's questions in order to help students digest this complex look at the events.
Even if you are not reading the novel, I recommend downloading this reading guide just to learn more about what happened to America on September 11, 2001!
This guide is especially helpful if you expect students to read sections of the novel on their own!
