American History II students are completing their unit on 9-11. We have discussed the event itself and our responses to this event. There are several questions that students can discuss on the blog concerning the war in Iraq, its rationales and realities, and the recent film Zero Dark Thirty concerning the capture of Osama bin Laden.
1. Of all the rationales for going to war, which ones do you feel are the most valid? Discuss.
2. How would you critique the film Zero Dark Thirty? What were its strengths and its weaknesses?
