Reflection: Perseverance Were You There? Did You Write It Down? - Section 3: Viewing a Primary Source


By playing this video, I hope that along with giving students a firsthand example of September 11, I gave them a sense of the uncertainty we all had that day.  I wanted them to feel and experience the events of the day without feeling the fear that we felt.  

In this unit, I hope that I have taught them the academic and patriotic lessons they need to honor Patriots Day every year and understand why they do.  I hope they leave this unit knowing that Americans are resilient and will rise above any hardships as can they.  That is the impact I want to have on my students- life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
