Educator’s Guide: Teaching the Impact of 9/11

By Allan Spencer | September 9 2021 | High School

This Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of 9/11, a moment to reckon with our past and reimagine our future. To help educators engage with the complex impacts of 9/11 in the classroom, Valarie Kaur—Sikh activist and author of See No Stranger: A Memoir and Manifesto of Revolutionary Love—has created a guide for teaching and learning about the decades-long impact of 9/11 on people of color. Through critical thinking questions as well as dialogue and reflection activities, this guide aims to shift the narrative of 9/11 to tell the truth of the decades-long impact of hate violence and state violence on our communities—and inspire and equip young Americans to make different choices to shape the next 20 years.
