Teaching 9/11 in the Core Curriculum
An increasingly prevalent feature of today’s liberal arts curriculum—the first-year seminar—presents challenges and opportunities. They are typically designed to support students’ transitions to the academic and social culture of an institution, provide students with a set of useful academic skills, and help students create community in their cohort. In addition, first-year seminars provide academic institutions with important tools for charting student progress toward academic goals, improving retention, and engaging students about subjects such as 9/11. This chapter discusses one such seminar that was offered at Emory & Henry College in 2015 and offers some examples of student research from the course.
