Participants will approach memorials as storytellers. Taking an object-based approach, we will explore: What is a memorial? Why do we create them? Why do they look the way they do? How can they help us understand an event? This interactive session will examine various 9/11 memorials, including notable objects in our collection, and offer lesson plans around this theme.
