Sept. 11 family members and college professors have unveiled a plan to teach junior and senior high school pupils about the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The 9/11 curriculum was announced Tuesday in New York City. It will be taught in pilot programs this year in California, Indiana, New Jersey, Illinois and Kansas.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani was among those interviewed by the educators who developed the curriculum.

Giuliani says there's a natural tendency to forget the events as the years go by.

But he says the threat of terrorism still exists, and it's important for children to develop an understanding of 9/11. He says this curriculum offers a sensitive way to do that.
