Word can’t really describe the horror of the Pittsburgh massacre this past weekend.
Here are some resources teachers might find useful (I’m adding this post to The Best Resources On Talking With Children About Tragedies):
How to discuss anti-Semitism in the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting is from The PBS NewsHour.
Talking Through Tragedy is from Harvard’s Usable Knowledge.
Responding to Pittsburgh is from Facing History.
Learning With: ‘11 Killed in Synagogue Massacre; Suspect Charged With 29 Counts’ is from The NY Times Learning Network.
Responding to the Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting is from Teaching Tolerance.

Today in each class, we updated each other on this past week’s hate crimes, and then students generated lists of steps – big and small – we can all take to love and support each other when we hear tough news.
I compiled this list based on all students’ responses: pic.twitter.com/IWl0AadZn6

Today we harnessed our national network of @Chalkbeat bureaus to examine how educators are handling conversations around recent hate crimes in their classrooms. Appreciate getting to work w @ShainaRC @MelanieAsmar & @egorski on this piece. https://t.co/O1MLDyzJYl
