    Introduction
     For this special project, we'll be reading articles, watching videos and doing some writing about 9/11 how it relates to World War II and Peace in the world today.  This unit will take about a week to get through.  Hold onto all your written work and it will all be stapled and collected in the end.  The goal of this unit is to understand lessons of 9/11, how it relates to some themes of World War II and finally how we can connect these lessons of war and peace to our lives today.
