The Report - High School curriculum

Today’s students, all born after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States, have grown up in a country perpetually fighting a so-called war on terror and live in and with the shadow of its legacy. For them the 9/11 attacks and the CIA’s post - 9/11 Detention and Interrogation program are increasingly a fading memory, lacking historical context and perspective. To address this need, The Report and high school curriculum offers an unparalleled opportunity for stu- dents’ to learn through the power of film, primary sourc- es, multimedia assets, and educational curriculum.

The Report - College curriculum

The Higher Education Guide supports incorporating The Report within graduate and undergraduate courses. The guide can be used to examine topics such as the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program implemented after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, the process and need for Legislative and Judicial Oversight of the Executive Branch, the separation of powers doctrine, the need for accountability; and the legacy and detrimental effects of the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation techniques” on U.S. global standing.
