Teaching 9/11 and the Constitution: Free Speech and Civil Liberties

In honor of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the Center for Civic Education offered this free webinar for teachers. The webinar includes presentations by David Hudson of Belmont University, Jennifer Lagasse of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, and Maria Gallo of the Center for Civic Education.
First Amendment scholar David Hudson spoke about the constitutional issues surrounding the federal government's reaction to the 9/11 attacks. Jennifer Lagasse demonstrated free educational resources that support teachers in both commemorating the milestone 20th anniversary of the attacks and teaching about their enduring repercussions for a generation with no memory of the event. Maria Gallo explored a new lesson related to 9/11 that teachers can also use for Constitution Week, September 17-23 (high school, elementary).

The Center has offered high-quality educator professional development for decades. Today, we provide such opportunities through our partners in several states in addition to organized Center events, self-paced online courses, and special webinars.
