9/11: Reflections, Memories, and Questions
Zingone, Joe
Social Studies, v102 n4 p164-166 2011
What were you doing on September 11th? This seems like an obvious question to prompt conversations about the World Trade Center tragedy, but is it a good question to ask high school students a decade removed from the event? Many students now in high school were toddlers at the time. What do they really remember from that day? Are these memories their own or are they a regurgitation of stories and images they have witnessed throughout their childhood? How then do we connect students to a lesson about the World Trade Center? The author describes having to revise his motivations about teaching a specialized lesson on 9/11 as a response to these questions.
