Join Jennifer Lagasse and Meredith Ketchmark of 9/11 Memorial and Museum and Share My Lesson for a session on looking back on historical crisis as an example of navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thursday, March 25, 2021
Now Available on Demand

As students navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, educators have a unique opportunity to make connections to past moments of historical crisis. Utilizing themes of resilience, hope, and response, educators from the 9/11 Memorial & Museum will share strategies that leverage first-person narratives and primary sources to bridge the gap between 9/11, which is an entirely historical event for students, and present day. The session will also explore how empathy can deepen historical inquiry and aid the discussion of current events in the social studies classroom.


Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.
