In the Mix: The New Normal
A special 3-part series that explores the aftermath of September 11. Teens discuss their changed world at a pivotal time in American history.
1. Living with Change This program highlights how teens have responded and coped with the impact of the ongoing struggle from 9-11. Interviews include: high schoolers who were closest to Ground Zero; a teen who volunteered for New York City Emergency Medical Service at the site; young people who abused drugs but stopped after 9-11; and a teen who lost her stepfather, a fireman.
2. Get the News? Teens are watching and reading more news now than they ever did before 9-11. This program explores how the news coverage on TV, on the Internet and in print has impacted the way they are coping with their changed world.
3. Dealing with Differences This program explores what schools, groups and individuals are doing to promote racial, religious and cultural understanding at a time when growing numbers of Arab-Americans and Muslims are being victimized.
