Remembering 9-11-2001

I found this list, via Martha Rankin (Adult Education Matters Blog). She credits Larry Ferlazzo. Larry compiled a list of helpful sites for remembering 9/11 in the ESL (English as second language) classroom. Check out these excellent resources:

Inside 9/11 is from the National Geographic. It has short video interviews, along with transcripts, of key people connected to the event, including survivors.

America’s Day Of Terror from the BBC has a lot of excellent information. In fact, it might have too much for English Language Learners, so you might want to point students to particular sections of the site.

The Cable News Network has a special page of video and audio clips related to the attack.

New York Magazine has a Photo Gallery of that day’s events.

Voice of America has a series of audio broadcasts, with text, about the 9/11 Anniversary and its effects years later.

The Biography Channel has a Profiles of 9/11 Photo Gallery.

Here are some other sites:
