Deaf School Children Sign The 9/11 Story

VIDEO [CC] - Deaf News: Deaf school children in Texas use sign language to paint a powerful portrait of what happened on Sept. 11.

USA Today - Teaching 9/11: “To them, it’s history, just like Pearl Harbor,” said Chris Causey, a middle school educator in Robertson County, Tenn. So, as the memories fade, teachers feel challenged to teach 9/11 in some way that is relevant to all ages in the United States.

In some schools in New Jersey, third graders learn about the K9 rescue teams while 12th graders discuss methods of prisoner interrogation.

But now we should be getting into the educational piece, where we’re doing more with the education. That’s the trajectory.”

The lessons from the curriculum Tambuscio helped write include political and religious discussions; the history and present state of Islamic extremists; the global impact of the day economically; the ensuing wars; the backlash against Muslims; the change in day-to-day security and privacy implications; the huge personal tragedy; as well as stories of the first responders, extraordinary acts by ordinary citizens and the mission of service many felt afterward...
