Podcast: George W. Bush
“Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist attacks.”
~ George W. Bush, September 11, 2001
Will you be talking about 9/11 with your students this week? George W. Bush became a wartime president the moment the first airplane flew into the World Trade Center. This week’s podcast features a reading from our American Presidents lesson plan on George Bush. In this lesson plan, students read a brief bio about the 43rd president of the United States and learn about how his role as commander-in-chief changed in the blink of an eye. To see the full transcript and use the ready-made lesson plan in class, log in to ESL Library and choose our American Presidents section. You may also be interested in our September 11 and 9/11 Heroes lesson plans.
