The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation by Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colon

The takeover of four flights on the morning of September 11th is recounted with a minute-by-minute graphic timeline, forcing the reader to remember the terror and confusion of that morning as the events unfolded or, in the case of many of our students, to experience them for the first time. From the rise of Usama bin Ladin through to the changes in US anti-terrorist policies post-9/11, the 9/11 Commission's official report provides a detailed account of the structure of US intelligence and security authorities as well as its recommendations for the future of anti-terrorism. Sections would be best used to answer such questions as : What happened on 9/11? Who planned the attacks? And, what is being done to prevent future attacks?

Please check out this excellent online resource that consists of 8 units
that provides middle and high school students a deeper understanding of
September 11. Each unit is a story of individual who was directly
impacted by 9/11 and who responded by creating projects to better their
communities. Each multimedia narrative is enriched with critical
thinking questions, historical context, research resource links and
community service projects. The materials are available for free at
