Remembering September 11 - Resources from Pearson

Last week I highlighted some National Geographic resources about September 11. Yesterday, I learned about some free lesson resources from Pearson on the topic of September 11. The Pearson Online Learning Exchange has a set of multimedia timelines for teaching about September 11. There are two basic timelines. One timeline is devoted to the events that took place on September 11, 2001. The other timeline is designed to provide before and after context to students.

Applications for Education
There is a section for K-5 lessons and a section for 6-12 lessons. Each section has teaching guides that you can download or view online. The lesson plans that I looked through were fairly substantial in their breadth and depth. The lesson plans are designed around thought and analysis rather than just simple regurgitation of information which often seems to be the case with pre-made lesson plans.
