Tech Tip Tuesday ... Remembering 9/11

I know exactly where I was and what I was doing ten years ago on September 11. I was teaching 3rd grade. I even remember the Johnny Appleseed activity we were doing. I assume that anyone reading this blog remembers exactly where they were and what they were doing when you heard the news. 

I've put together a collection of some online 9/11 Resources. Please review all pages and videos first to determine if they are appropriate for our younger students. 
  • Understanding 9/1: A Television News Archive - this site was fascinating to me because it shows you what was being televised on 19 different news stations (from the US and other countries around the world) from 8:00am on 9/11 - 9/17. The clips are about 30 seconds each, so you do need to click from one clip to another, but it's really amazing to watch the early footage of what was happening
  • The History Channel: 9/11 Attacks - This History Channel has compiled videos, speeches, photo galleries, and three interactive sites about the 9/11 Attacks.
  • Teaching 9/11 - This is a collection of posts and ideas from the New York Times about how teachers across America are teaching about 9/11. Lots of good information and ideas here.
  • Remembering 9/11 (from Pearson) - This site breaks up its resources for K-6 students and 6-12 students. There are some interactive timelines, teacher resources, and even a parent letter. The secondary option include more multimedia resources.
  • Talking to Your Children about 9/11 - This resource from the National September 11 Memorial & Museum offers tips and a broad outline for parents to aid talking to their children about 9/11.
