NEW! TEACHER ORIENTATION

Educators - Are you currently teaching or planning to include lessons about the events of 9/11? Join us to explore how we can enhance your students' learning experience with various teacher resources tailored to help you create an engaging educational journey. For those who attended our virtual event launch in 2023, we welcome you to join us again this year as we expand on the resources available for educators.

To provide you with tools and insights to enrich your students' education, Friends, National Park Service, and the National Writing Project led a teacher orientation session. Once you register for the 2024 National Day of Learning "Teach to Remember," you will be able to access the recording of the orientation.

2023 | Virtual Event for Grade Levels 6-12: Enhancing Students' Learning Experience

While the programming of this virtual event was geared towards students in grades 6-12, there were options available for all grade levels. After registering, teachers received a link to access a range of resources that will enrich their virtual learning program.

Came September 11, a video gallery was accessible to the public. The gallery included ranger-guided tours of each of the Memorials features, interviews with family members, a crime scene investigation, and a pre-recorded Moment of Remembrance for those who were unable to tune in to the live stream event on September 11.

Participants were greeted by various Flight 93 leadership members via live stream. The 9/11 ceremony from Flight 93 National Memorial was also live streamed, followed by live Q&A sessions led by Flight 93 National Memorial rangers.

Curriculum and resources were available starting September 11, 2023, through the Zoom platform and remained accessible to teachers until the end of that year. After this time, all information can be accessed via the 9/11 resource pages on both Friends and National Park Service websites. Visit Teach to Remember - Flight 93 National Memorial (U.S. National Park Service) (nps.gov) for educational resources.
