What made 9/11 so shocking?

What made 9/11 so shocking?

(7)
There aren’t many September 11th lessons out there so here’s one! Now updated to include newer sliders and embedded clip. The main objective is for students to gauge how ‘complete’ a BBC news clip is. The PowerPoint includes task descriptions but please ask if you can’t follow the lesson. The bottom of the posters should be folded up so that you can reveal the answers! You choose the plenary. If you know of a short clip which was produced a little after the event that would be useful. Any comments are appreciated! :-) Images acquired through a search engine filtered to “labelled for reuse” BBC own the copyright to the clip in the link. I’ve been observed in this lesson and graded as outstanding so hopefully this works for you too. (911, 9-11)
