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.
This year’s program features six speakers, including first responders, survivors and family members, along with the voices of several speakers who were young people on 9/11.
- Register for a free Share My Lesson webinar on August 18 to preview the program.
