This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. In this webinar from the Center for Civic Education, First Amendment scholar David Hudson, Assistant Professor of Law at Belmont University, will speak about the constitutional issues surrounding the federal government's reaction to the 9/11 attacks, how this affected free speech and other civil liberties, the tradeoffs involved, and whether this reaction was effective.
Jennifer Lagasse, Assistant Director of Education Programs at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, will demonstrate 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, Director of Professional Development & Special Programs for the Center for Civic Education will lead an exploration of a new lesson related to 9/11 for teachers.
This webinar is designed especially for teachers of civics, government, and U.S. history who want to better understand the constitutional implications of the U.S. government's reaction to 9/11, but everyone is welcome to attend.
