Registration is open for “Teaching 9/11: Where History, Memory, and Myth Intersect,” a free, full-day professional development workshop at the 9/11 Memorial Museum. The program on Nov. 7, 2017, is intended for third through twelfth grade educators who are interested in teaching the Sept. 11 attacks to their students.

The workshop features a keynote address about conspiracy culture in American history from Stephen Andrews, Interim Editor, “Journal of American History,” and Adjunct Professor, Department of History, Indiana University, followed by breakout sessions led by 9/11 Memorial Museum staff. Sessions address a wide range of challenging topics, including the enduring repercussions of the attacks, approaching 9/11 with elementary students, the rise of al-Qaeda, using art and artifacts to spark dialogue, and media literacy. 

Nearly 600 educators have attended previous professional development conferences at the 9/11 Memorial Museum. All participants receive free curricular materials at the completion of the program. 

Space is limited. Click here to register and to see a full list of sessions.
