Hello colleagues, Some of you may be planning to focus on Veterans Day (November 11) in your classroom. PBS has some great instructional resources including several short videos on various topics including on:
- The history of Veterans Day
- Youth reflecting on parents' military careers
- Disabled veterans
- Phantom limbs and how they are treated today
- Unique challenges of female veterans
- Treating PTSD
In addition to lesson plans, there is also a 10-question pre lesson "quiz" on their site.
Let us know how you approach this topic in your classroom.
Take care, Susan Finn Miller
