Honoring 9/11

Honoring 9/11
Eighth-grade students visited the 9/11 Memorial & Museum in lower Manhattan this last week. It was the culmination of an entire skills-building unit of informational text taken from the 9/11 Commission Report where the students created timelines and thinking maps to better understand and analyze the events of September 11, 2001. The students visited the museum first and saw many of the artifacts which were recovered from that infamous day. They immersed themselves in the experience and then went outside to the memorial where they all honored Andrew Stern as well as others who lost family & friends.
