Hi All,
Just got this email this morning, the site has nice links on how to talk to students regarding the conflict. The Teachers First Website always provides quality references on a wide variety of subjects and grade levels.
hope this helps,

Special TeachersFirst Update - March 19, 2003

The opening of hostilities in Iraq will no doubt affect life in your classroom tomorrow and in the days ahead. We know that the coming days and weeks may be difficult for some of your students, and for you personally.

TeachersFirst has created an extensive page of resources and web links that we hope will help you and your students in dealing with events both in the Middle East and here at home. This page includes content for all grade levels, several articles specifically for teachers and parents, and a large stock of reference material that will provide older students with background on how this conflict evolved. There are also numerous links to ways in which your students can help show their support of the Americans engaged in this conflict. Our Conflict in Iraq page is available at:

TeachersFirst will update this page on an ongoing basis, and we expect that some information may change very rapidly. We will highlight any changes as appropriate.

This e-mail will replace the normal weekly TeachersFirst Update scheduled for Monday, March 24. We will adjust the content of our featured sites to keep as close as possible to the regular curriculum schedule while accommodating increased interest in international events.

If you have thoughts or suggestions on other ways in which TeachersFirst can help during the days ahead, please contact us by sending an e-mail to

.and remember that you make a difference, especially now.
