- and more….
Many schools do a good job honoring veterans and remembering the holiday, though the history of “who, how, and where” Veterans Day started has been missing from most schools, perhaps as many as 99%, due to needing lesson plans and content in history textbooks.
You can use these resources intended for educational leaders, teachers in classrooms for millions of students across the nation, civic club presenters, and others who want to share this inspiring national history. Each November 1-11, we can help insure teachers and speakers have resources needed. You can use the handout, poster, and video below for a rich program whether presenting for 5-10 minutes or much more as in a course. There is more provided through links.
