I have been using Fireboat for years. I love the book. For 9/11 I always focus on the heroism and sense of community that followed. I had the students write about a hero in their lives. This year I am going to have them write letters to community workers in the neighborhood. Thanks for such a simple, yet profound follow up activity.
I am enjoying reading your posts and look forward to future ones!
