How will your school commemorate 9/11?

We’re working on a regional story taking a look at how local schools are commemorating and teaching about 9/11.

Due to state budget cuts, the California Dept. of Education hasn’t updated its history-social sciences framework since the last one was adopted in 1998.

However, the CDE has links to resources for educators on its website: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/cr/lb/sept11.asp.

In the past, some local schools have assembled students around the flag pole for assemblies featuring band and choral performances, short speeches and a moment of silence remembering those who died. I am looking for schools to profile this year.

If you’re planning special lessons or other activities, please contact me at 925-945-4764 or tharrington@bayareanewsgroup.com.

Thanks!
