Making Sense of the Rampage at the US Capitol

Not since the War of 1812, when British forces set fire to the United States Capitol, have the halls of power in Washington been overtaken by violent intruders as they were on January 6. As the world watched this tableau of violence and mayhem live, teachers immediately realized that the ordinary curriculum would need to give way. The New York Times Learning Network offers dozens of free lesson plan ideas, activities and Times materials—articles, photos, videos, opinion pieces, graphics and more—for exploring the causes and consequences of the assault on democracy in the United States. The Learning Network also offers an invitation to students to join the conversation. On January 6, students were asked, “What Are Your Reactions to the Storming of the Capitol by a Pro-Trump Mob?” and already more than 300 teenagers have posted their thoughts. The Times would like to hear from your students too.
