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. Our 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.

Full-day 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 include: 

  • Repercussions of 9/11
  • Media Literacy and 9/11
  • Bridging History and Memory
  • Inquiry and Artifacts
  • Understanding 9/11 for Young Learners
Workshops are designed for educators who teach students in grades three through 12 as well as administrators, librarians and curriculum specialists. All workshops include free curricular materials.

We are an approved sponsor of CTLE.

Our next educator workshop will be held on November 5, 2019. Please check back in October for registration details.
