Assembly of the week

7th September 2012 at 01:00

Remembering 911

Lauranorah's PowerPoint includes images of the events of 11 September 2001 and its aftermath. It's an emotional introduction to remembrance and helping others.

Primary: Ask pupils to discuss how they think people survived the collapse of the World Trade Center. In what other situations might people need help?

Secondary: What do pupils think would be a fitting memorial to 911? Look at images of the monument on the site of the World Trade Center and hold a memorial service.

For older students, discuss issues of memory and the controversial placement of a Christian cross on the World Trade Center site. Ask them to consider what issues the creators of national memorials have to consider.

For an assembly for every day of the year, see the TES Assembly a Day collection. bit.lyRtqmCN.
