How to Teach About 9/11 in a Manner that Doesn’t Lead to the Bullying of Muslim Students

September 1, 2022

As we approach the anniversary of the horrific 9/11/2001 attacks in New York City, teachers across the country prepare to teach about this tragic and heinous act. To this end we are pleased to offer resources which include various perspectives about the impact of that day:

  • Discussion and lesson plan for 9/11 panel featuring speakers from diverse communities that were impacted
  • Articles by Muslim Americans for classroom discussion with guiding questions

Even as we recall 9/11 with sadness and grief, we are encouraged by all the efforts to promote mutual understanding and respect. We invite you to join this work by taking advantage of the following resources:

  • Live speaker programs
  • Online curricula for educators
  • Training webinars for school educators on teaching about world religions and preventing bullying
