At the High School, Participation in Government classes discussed the day and its impact on the country. Middle School eighth grade teacher Ms. Miller used the “Spirit of Volunteerism: 9/11 and Beyond” documentary and discussion guide to teach students about the outpouring of support after the attacks. Another eighth grade teacher, Mr. Brown, conducted a “teach-in” activity in his social studies classes covering the topic and understanding the role of diversity in American life.

 

Fourth grade teachers at Osborn read the book “Fireboat”, then led an activity in which student created paper squares containing poems and illustrations that will be combined into a large quilt. Ms. Carman’s class at Osborn discussed the lyrics of “Heal the World,” creating pictures for a September 11 tribute.
