Middle School Teacher Honors Tree of Life in Lesson Plan “To be a Stronger Tree”
On October 27, 2018, 11 lives were taken during the attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh. A year later, we are still mourning the loss of our community members. Communities, families, and educators alike are figuring out ways to make sense out of senseless acts, and organizations like Classrooms Without Borders (CWB) are leading the way in these efforts. CBW is challenging teachers to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the attack by creating lesson plans to educate students about hate and how to resist it.
