NEW YORK (AP) — Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani joined Sept. 11 family members and college professors on Tuesday at a hotel blocks from the World Trade Center site to unveil a plan to teach middle and high school students about the 2001 terrorist attacks.
The 9/11 curriculum, believed to be the first comprehensive educational plan focusing on the attacks, is expected to be tested this year at schools in New York City, California, New Jersey, Alabama, Indiana, Illinois and Kansas.
The curriculum is taught through videos, lessons and interactive exercises, including one that requires students to use Google Earth software to map global terrorist activity.
One of the main goals is to help students entering middle and high school, who may been too young to have strong memories of the attacks, to develop a tangible connection to what happened.

This is going to be interesting to watch. Being in NY state I guess my grandchildren are going to be fed the kool aide, but I feel for that teacher when they open it up for discussion.
I wonder if how they are going to handle the many children that have parents that don't just swallow that bullcrap story. That is going to be a very interesting thing to watch. This just may backfire on them you know. When the kids start bringing information up that shows the holes in the OS, this just may open the eyes of the next generation. Wouldn't that be lovely!
