Reminding Students of 9/11

Sep 11, 2011

Lauren Goff was in middle school on Sept. 11, 2001. Now, 10 years later, she has to teach today’s middle schoolers about that day, a day of which they have no memory. Goff, a history teacher at South Warren Middle School, said she struggled with how to explain the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks to her seventh-graders, who were just 2 years old when they happened. “To them, it seems just as ancient as ancient Rome,” Goff said.
