Reflections on Disasters

I found this article in my email today from the NCTE.  (They send such great and timely articles.)  The article focuses on how important it is for children to reflect when a crisis occurs. 
While the children in this study had experienced a flood, the information can help you look at the importance of writing and art in expressing feelings after any crisis.  The article ("'Wen the Flood Km We Had to Lv': Children's Understandings of Disaster") is found here.  
There are lesson plans to help you with remembering 9/11 on the NCTE's,  Read Write Think Website


  1. Thanks for the direct link to Children's understandings of disasters. I found it very useful.
