As we move closer to the milestone 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the education department at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum is offering resources that help young people better understand this historically significant event. To that end, registration is now open for Anniversary in the Schools, a free, on-demand commemorative program offered on Friday, September. 10, and Saturday, September. 11, 2021.
The program includes a 30-minute film showcasing a diverse slate of speakers sharing their personal 9/11 stories and an interactive live chat with museum staff answering student questions in real time. This year’s theme is twofold; the program will highlight the importance of commemorating the 20th anniversary for a generation with no memory of the attacks, and also how the lessons of 9/11 can help us with the challenges we face today.
- Register for a free Share My Lesson webinar on August 18 to preview the program.
