History and Memory in Middle School - Reflections on September 11th
  • Academics
Caitlin Craig

Dr. Julie Johnson visited our Middle School classes in early September to talk about her experience living in New York City during 9/11, and shared her perspective on history as the students talked about how the recounting of events can be affected by one’s own memory. Julie talked about how history and memory are intertwined, and how history helps shape memories and can make us more aware of the human experience.
