Teacher Professional Development

Discover how to integrate the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s collection and inquiry-based teaching strategies into your classroom by participating in one of our professional development opportunities.

Workshops address the challenges of teaching difficult content and explore interdisciplinary connections to your curriculum and common core standards through Museum tours, hands-on activities, and group discussion.

Workshops are designed for educators who teach students in grades 3 through 12 as well as administrators, librarians, and curriculum specialists. All workshops include free curricular materials.

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum is an approved sponsor of CTLE.

Foundational workshops examine the 9/11 attacks and offer strategies for incorporating artifacts, images, and primary sources into your classroom to teach this challenging content.

Conference workshops include a keynote speaker and a wide variety of break-out sessions led by 9/11 Memorial Museum staff. Previous session offerings have included: 

  • Repercussions of 9/11
  • Media Literacy, Conspiracy Theories, and 9/11
  • Bridging History and Memory
  • Inquiry and Artifacts
  • Understanding 9/11 for Young Learners
