Patriot Day Resources

September 11, 2011 will mark the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, and it is well worth the time to make it a teachable moment. Since even a high school student was perhaps only seven years old, many students may not understand about this day of infamy.  The following links for all ages offer everything from videos to poems to interviews that are worth reviewing.
