PBS: America Responds

Fourteen years ago tomorrow, on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, members of the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four planes in a coordinated terrorist attack. Flash back to the tragic events of that day by searching through this archived snapshot of PBS's coverage of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The site includes analysis and insight, background resources, thoughts and tributes, and resources for parents and educators. Students and teens were invited to share their thoughts and feelings about September 11 and you can read their stories here. A great means for teaching students about the historical significance of 9/11, terrorism, and the associated pain and impact on America.
