Teachers in classrooms across the country took varied approaches to the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, with variations depending on the age of students. Sandra Bastianelli, an elementary-school teacher in Boston, read a picture book to a second-grade student. In Connecticut, middle-school history teacher Greg Gubitosi showed video clips and led talks that focused on heroes, and students wrote a paragraph on the topic "What Is A Hero?" In Virginia, high-school seniors in Richard Ambler's government class discussed civic responsibility and the roles of government.
