Hi there! I have been trying to research "teaching 9-11" or "how to teach 9-11" and have not been coming up with many results. Would you mind leading me in the right direction on what words to use in my search?

Hello!

For lesson plans for all grades, the Web Sites tab of the Education LibGuide is a great place to start. The suggested sites include general information and several discipline-specific areas. Most sites include lesson plans and related materials.

In the General links, EDSITEment is a solid choice. A search of September 11 AND terrorist - I didn't have much luck with 9-11 - yielded a number of results. Be sure to click the tabs on the results page to see results from both EDSITEment and Verizon Thinkfinity.

A second choice in the General links is Merlot, which yielded a few results when searching September 11.

In the Social Sciences links, Smithsonian's History Explorer provided several results including "Teaching 9-11". The internal link was broken, but it should have gone here: http://www.911memorial.org/teach-learn.

Also in the Social Sciences, Digital History might be useful. The site is not searchable, but there is a "For Teachers" link in the left toolbar. There is a September 11 learning module, and there may be other resources in the teachers' area.

Another Social Sciences link, History Matters, offers results when searching "lesson plans" AND September.

Although it's a Science link, the American Museum of Natural History offers 3 interesting results for a search of September 11.

Good luck with this interesting topic!
