Understanding 9/11: A Television News Archive

Over the last week or so I've shared a handful of resources related to September 11, 2001. Today, I think I've found the most extensive resource yet. The Internet Archive has assembled more than 3,000 hours of news footage from September 11, 2001 and the six days immediately following. You can explore the footage in a timeline grid format. I just spent fifteen or more minutes watching some of the news footage and it took me right back to many of the same feelings that I had almost ten years ago watching it live from a FedEx sales office in Tempe, Arizona.

Applications for Education
Understanding 9/11: A Television Archive could be a powerful resource to help students understand the feelings of confusion and disbelief that many people experienced watching the news ten years ago.
