U.S. ED Launches a new Web site to Commemorate the 10th Anniversary of September 11, 2001.

A new web site is now available from the U.S. Department of Education with 9/11 Materials for Teachers. This new web site presents a set of resource materials focused on the anniversary of 9/11, which were developed under federal grants supported by the U.S. Department of Education.

The resources can be used by teachers in carrying out classroom activities to commemorate the 10th anniversary. Further, the web site provides a link to the grantee’s host site, where you can access the full set of resource materials. Also, links are provided to a number of other updated federal agencies that offer access to educational resources focused on the anniversary of 9/11.

In addition, our country will be celebrating Constitution Day on September 17. Some of the materials, in addition to commemorating the anniversary of 9/11, underscore the importance of the Constitution and its underlying principles to our democracy.

We invite you to visit the dedicated site: http://www.ed.gov/911anniversary
