From August 3rd to August 4th, the National Museum of American History, National September 11 Memorial & Museum, Pentagon Memorial Fund, and Flight 93 National Memorial will offer a free online conference called September 11: Teaching Contemporary History. Designed to provide for K-12 educators with resources and strategies for addressing the terrorist attacks, the conference will include roundtable discussions with content experts and six workshop sessions. These free workshops will highlight resources available at each participating organization, provide background information on 9/11, and encourage conversations on how to document, preserve, and interpret recent history and current events.

You can also join educators from the National Museum of American History (Thinkfinity content partner) in a discussion about teaching 9/11 at the ten year anniversary. This group is hosted in conjunction with the September 11: Teaching Contemporary History online conference.
