Even after all of the painful turmoil of this past year, the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol Building left many of us reeling and at a loss for words, especially as we seek to explain to our children and students what happened, and its significance for ourselves and our nation. Below you will find a list of resources–compiled from teachers, administrators, and educational organizations–that we hope will guide you as you support your students’ and children’s processing of this difficult, historical moment. 

If you know of a resource that’s helped you and isn’t listed here, please send the link to us, and we will add it to this list.

All of these resources can be used with secondary school-aged students and older. An asterisk (*) marks those that are also appropriate for elementary school-aged students, and can be adapted for the youngest learners (early childhood).
