"Addressing Tragedy in the Classroom"
edited by Steve Mintz, VP of Teaching, H-Net

An expansive collection of resources for teachers and scholars regarding 11 September. From Steve Mintz's introduction: "One of our greatest challenges as teachers is to help our students come to terms with these horrific events. Our students must cope with fear, anger, despair, uncertainty, and a sense of helplessness. We cannot wipe away the horror of these events-nor do we want to. But we can help our students better understand what they witnessed, and therefore help them recover from this time of sorrow…." http://www.h-net.org/teaching/journals/sept11/mintz
