Remembering September 11

As we approach the first anniversary of the September 11th attack on America, it is a time to reflect on the tragedy and our response to it. The following Web sites present various views of that day of terror and the year that followed.

Kids Newsroom: September 11


Kids Newsroom is a weekly news site with archives dating back to 1999. To revisit last year’s tragedy, check out the September 14, 2001 issue. Articles include a look at FEMA’s recovery efforts, stranded travelers, the U.S. declaration of war on terrorism and the ubiquitous red, white and blue ribbons. Take the self-scoring Current Events Quiz to test your knowledge of the week’s infamous events: “Which sports league announced tighter security measures this week?”

Online News Hour: Life After 9.11


From the PBS NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Extra for Students takes on the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks (click on :September 11 Background” in the circular menu) and life afterwards. “Response to Terrorism” and “Rebuilding Afghanistan” are two of six Special Reports; “Role of Afghan Women in New Government” and “Arab-Americans Caught up in the FBI’s Dragnet” are two of five NewsHour video clips. Click on Student Reactions (on the circular menu) to read posts from kids around the world.

PBS: America Responds


“America Responds is a snapshot of PBS’s coverage of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. This Web site was maintained in the months immediately following the attacks, and now serves as an archive of related resources, analysis and discussion from that moment in time.” This site has incredible depth, and is the only one of today’s selections not created specifically for kids. Don’t miss the thirty-four one-minute videos crafted by nine independent film makers in answer to the question “How has your life changed after September 11?” America’s New Challenge

***** consolidates eight Special Reports about the U.S. war on terrorism into America’s New Challenge. Although each section is excellent, I thought the Central Asia feature was outstanding. Visit to learn about the history, geography and people of Afghanistan. You’ll find it by scrolling down the page to the For More Info headline. Other highlights include The Muslim World, and Bioterrorism.

September 11 Through Children’s Eyes


The five Dalton School elementary students who authored this ThinkQuest site visited New York’s PS 89, just a block from ground zero. They interviewed students and teachers, took photos, and collected artwork and creative writing. Best clicks are the Opinion Room (second grader Allie wrote “I wish I had wings.”) and Library (“A scary thing happened. A plane hit the top of the World Trade Center.”) After evacuating their school on September 11th, the students and teachers of PS 89 finally returned to their school on February 27, 2002.
