INTRODUCTION

In the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, many educational programs and projects have emerged to address the pain and loss experienced by New Yorkers and other citizens.

This project is designed to help New Yorkers come to terms with their grief and losses and to rediscover the many outstanding attributes of New York City. This brief article describes the series and discusses lesson plans and benefits to teachers.

New York Voices focuses on inspiring New Yorkers engaged in the process of rebuilding their lives in a dynamic city full of outstanding resources. The series includes broadcast material and an extensive, searchable website (www.thirteen.org) with video archives, photographs and transcripts. New York Voices also has lesson plans for teachers that provide detailed steps to maximize student learning on particular topics.

New York Voices has included segments on Ground Zero, heroes, artists, comics, public school teachers, food, politics and public health.
