20 Years After the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks: Guidance for Educators   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The 20-year mark of the 9/11 terrorist attacks is a milestone for the nation. We can expect substantial media attention and an array of commemorative activities as the world looks back on these events. Though remembrances will have an impact on almost all of us, they will affect us differently depending in part on our age and experiences. Educators can play a vital role in helping students comprehend the 9/11 attacks in ways that promote understanding without provoking undue stress. The most helpful message will be that whatever we face, we will face together, using coping skills we have learned. Our current experience of educational, social and emotional upheaval as we deal with the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic can provide a useful example. Thinking and planning ahead can help educators take care of themselves, support students, and strengthen families' ability to respond to their children's questions and concerns."
