The September 11, 2001, Web Archive is a unique resource. Here, you can visit web pages "captured in time" as they appeared on and around September 11, 2001, and 9/11's first anniversary. This allows you to see how various sectors (business, non-profit, press, etc.) reacted in web publishing, as well as the international digital response to 9/11.

Use the site to find various articles or approaches to share with your classroom, or let your students sift through the content. See what sources from Dutch news sites to George Mason University to everyday names like Scholastic and Google had to say concerning the related events as they unfolded.

Be aware that the content is not sorted by level of grade-appropriateness or for potentially offensive or emotional trigger-inducing material. Also note that the initial calendar you can access for each site is set to 2002. Click 2001 for the breaking news rather than potential anniversary commentary.
