    I was involved with piloting lessons for the 9/11 curriculum created by the NJ Commission on Holocaust Education. It was a great experience as my middle school language arts students, my graduate pre-service teaching students, and I explored the idea of 9/11 as an ultimate act of bullying. We used the opportunity to learn about tolerance, as well as terrorism.

    PBS NewsHour Extra also offers a free multimedia “video quilt” of perspectives on 9/11 from young people. Students can also participate in the project; comes with a lesson plan for teachers. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/extra/911voices
