Product Description
This project is an engaging way for 4-9 + graders to hear first-hand accounts from adults who lived through September 11, 2001.

I have used it successfully for years with my seventh grade students. Each year, I am amazed how little these kids know about an event so pivotal in our adult lives! This interview is a powerful way to teach kids about this event, as well as teach them note-taking and interview skills.

Other than an adult to interview, and a computer to type the completed interview notes (optional), everything you need to do this project is right here.

Note: You can do this project the week before 9/11 or after, or really any time of the year.

Here is what you will get with this product:

*A suggested schedule to complete this project and lesson plan ideas.

*Ideas of how to introduce this project and give kids background information about 9/11 before they conduct the interview.

*How to do a role-play of an interview “live” in front of your classes- this is crucial for success!

*How to teach kids the importance of asking follow-up questions in an interview. The secret is in the-role play you will do!

*The guidelines sheet with a place for the interviewee signs and dates, and the five interview questions the kids will ask the person they are interviewing (including one that they make up).

*A score sheet for easy grading of the project.

*How to have kids share a part of their interview in class- this gives great teachable moments!

*Bonus- I will share links and info about the powerful short videos I show around 9/11.
