Two kids. One devastating day.

September 11, 2001. New York City. Nine-year-old Brandon goes to work with his dad on the 107th floor of the World Trade Center. Out of nowhere an airplane slam into the tower, creating a fiery nightmare of terror and confusion that threatens everyone in the building. Can Brandon survive–and escape?

September 11, 2019. Afghanistan. Eleven-year-old Reshmina has grown up in the shadow of war, but she dreams of peace and progress. When a battle erupts in her village, Reshmina stumbles upon a wounded American soldier named Taz. Should she help him–and put herself and her family in mortal danger?

Ground Zero delivers a pulse-pounding and unforgettable take on history and hope, revenge, and fear–and the stunning links between the past and present

Together, we will explore both literature and a contemporary history lesson with the uplifting message that humanity’s survival depends on us working for, not against, one another.

In addition to reading the story, students will learn the timeline of events that changed the United States forever.

The class will be a combination of reading comprehension, history, discussion, lecture, and projects (timeline and map).

BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF THE TOPIC, STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO READ AHEAD OF THE CLASS.

Students will receive approximately two to two and a half hours of homework weekly in the form of reading, keeping an interactive notebook and writing (informal journaling).

Ninth graders can be awarded .5 (1/2 year) English or Elective credit.

NOTE: Registration deadline is August 15, 2022.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
