Discussion: Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Katrina, which hit the Gulf Coast in the Fall of 2005, is now considered one of the deadliest natural disasters in American history. The storm killed approximately 1,800 people, cost billions in property damage, and displaced more than 400,000 residents. It has been seen not only as a natural disaster but also a human failure. Do you see the effects of Hurricane Katrina as a failure of the local, state or federal government? Why was this storm not taken more seriously? How has this storm changed the approach taken to natural disasters?

This assignment will allow you to create your own interpretation of the modern era. Your response should be at least 300 words and contain your analysis, reaction, or connection to a specific issue within the historical narrative that you find compelling. For full credit, your paper must not simply sum up the reading or repeat points made there. Rather, I’m looking for you to create your own interpretation, explain the emotional content of the piece, or discuss some original insight. Include citations as needed. Historians of the same time period vary their research topics in order for us to gain a richer and fuller picture of the past and so that our understanding of the past will be as accurate and complete as possible. In the interest of allowing you, as young historians, to follow your own interests, please select one of the following topics to address. Domestic Terrorism: After reading your text and reviewing the assigned materials, submit an analysis of domestic terrorism. You might want to consider the following questions, but you are not limited to them: What was the motivation of these terrorists? How did the American government and people respond? How are those who were killed and what can we learn from this? Election of Obama: After reading your text and reviewing the assigned materials, submit an analysis of the 2008 election. You might want to consider the following questions, but you are not limited to them: To what extent did the Civil Rights Movement pave the way for Obama’s election? How did voters in 2008 view this election in relation to race relations? Does this election still seem an important turning point for the US? Why or why not? 3.Discussion: Watershed Moments. The Challenger disaster was one of the most traumatic events in NASA’s history. Many Americans in Generation X remember the Challenger in the way that the generation before them remembered the Kennedy assassination. For the next generation, the Columbine school shooting or the events of 9/11 would hold the same significance. These events are generally referred to as “watershed moments,” a crucial turning point after which nothing is the same. While most are tragic, some are hopeful, such as the moment Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “Dream Speech.” Historians are tasked with helping people commemorate events like these, and secure their place in the national consciousness. After reading your text and viewing the provided materials, submit a 2 paragraph post. Your first paragraph will discuss the watershed event that had the most effect on you and the second will discuss the one that you believe most affected the country: Which “watershed moment” (that you have actually lived through) has had the most effect on you personally? Why or how? Thinking through all the events we have researched this semester, which watershed moments do you believe have had the most impact on our country? How should the public honor or remember the moments you selected?
