September 11 - Hope & Renewal
According to the news release issued at the beginning of this month by the New York Schools Chancellor's Office, teachers are encouraged to integrate these lessons into the school year. The materials are meant for use in Social Studies, History, English Language Arts, and Art.
These lesson plans, written with the help of New York City public school teachers, are divided into four categories: Historical Impact; Community & Conflict; Heroes & Service; and Memory & Memorialization. The entire program is also designed to build and strengthen writing and critical thinking skills.
