What made 9/11 so shocking?

What made 9/11 so shocking?

There aren't many September 11th lessons out there so here's one! 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)

Remember 9/11 - PowerPoint + 31 Teaching Activities To Try In Class + 9/11 Writing Prompts

Remember 9/11 - PowerPoint + 31 Teaching Activities To Try In Class + 9/11 Writing Prompts

Remember 9/11 is a presentation showing the towers before, during and after the event. It captures some of the drama and will be an excellent focal point for any teacher wanting to talk about this event in a balanced way. It would also make an excellent backdrop for an assembly. I have added a presentation showing you how to use photo flashcards for 31 different teaching activities in the classroom and also a set of writing prompts to encourage the children to describe the events more creatively. You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different actions being shown in each of photos. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about Remembering 9/11. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different groupings. The students can then discuss what they think each one was saying or thinking. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
