Classroom Considerations

  • This lesson will require a great deal of preparation and careful consideration of how to properly approach the "Crossfire" style debate. Make sure learners are aware that their arguments do not represent the students' own personal views, and that they are prepared with proper background information and skills for respectful communication
  • Part of the lesson asks learners to recall how they felt on September 11th, 2001, though most will be too young to remember. You can perhaps simply share your own memories or ask learners to talk to their parents prior to beginning the lesson
Pros

  • All activity handouts included, as well as list of resources for further research
