Welcome to the Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab’s (CELL) online classroom for teachers. The CELL is pleased to offer an educational curriculum designed to help students evaluate news about terrorism, understand its root causes, and ultimately take action to help prevent it through counter terrorism training.
Each lesson lists several of the Colorado Model Content Standards. To view the content, please apply for an educator login. For a preview of the lesson plans please see below.
The purpose of this activity is to get students thinking about terrorism, reflecting on preconceived notions they might have that may or may not be accurate. They will also have the opportunity to participate in a group activity that enables them to compare their prior knowledge, thoughts and ideas with their classmates to begin expanding their own thinking prior to a field trip to the CELL.
This lesson is intended as an interactive activity for groups of students at the CELL exhibit. The activities will allow for groups of students to become experts in one of the exhibit’s sections, share their knowledge with classmates, and develop critical thinking questions for discussion and reflection.
