The 9/11 Primer provides educators and online learners with foundational information about the World Trade Center and the Twin Towers, the 9/11 attacks and their aftermath, and the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site.
The 9/11 Primer is divided into six thematic modules, each with a range of educational resources that help learners understand the events of 9/11, the antecedents of the attacks, and the ongoing repercussions of that day. These modules can be used in preparation for a visit to the Museum or as a guide for in-classroom teaching. The types of resources presented include primary sources, first-person video stories, public program video recordings, lesson plans, interactive timelines, and object highlights. Recommended grade levels for each resource are provided.
