5 (Recent) Historical Events You Should Discuss with Your Students

historical events assignment

One of my students recently asked me about something he saw on the news regarding the Sochi Winter Olympic Games. His question was not about a certain sporting event but instead about the increased security because of the possible terrorist attacks, particularly against athletes from the West. I attempted to explain how some individuals do not agree with the American culture and related the situation back to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. Unfortunately, the connection I was trying to establish between these events wasn't as clear as I'd hoped because my ninth grade student, born in the year 2000, was unaware of what happened on 9/11. Of course he'd heard of the attacks, but he didn't understand the background behind the event.

This conversation got me thinking about other important events from the 21st century that my students were unaware of but that will have lasting impact on their futures. Some of these events may already be covered in contemporary curriculum, but could be enhanced further by infusing them into other content areas. These discussions could help improve comprehension and global awareness as today's students mature into young adults in our ever changing, digitally connected world where nothing happens in isolation.

The list I've created below is by no means all-encompassing but only a reflection of the events I believe students could develop a deeper understanding about. Instead of just listing facts about each event, I've detailed below a few reasons why each event should be discussed.

1. 9/11 Terrorist Attacks and the War on Terror (2001-Present)

  • This explains our national remembrance of the nearly 3,000 Americans that were killed.
  • These attacks led to the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
  • Operation Enduring Freedom is still being fought by our Armed Forces.
  • The U.S. government has spent nearly $8 trillion since 2001 on national security.
  • There has been a rise in intelligence spending and monitoring of citizens worldwide by governments.
  • This is the story behind the building of the Freedom Tower in New York City.

2. Arab Spring (2010-Present)

  • A sweep of popular uprisings led to multiple civil wars (Syria's war continues), civil disorder, governmental changes, major and minor protests, and the overthrow of entire governments (Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen).
  • The movement rapidly spread due to social networking sites.
  • These changes led to the creation of new governments.
  • The uprisings have drawn international support for protestors and condemnation by foreign governments for violence against these countries' citizens.

3. World Financial Collapse (2007-2009)

  • This event was considered by some economists to be the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s.
  • Governments went to great lengths to bail out banks and private industry.
  • The trigger was the housing market drop of 2006, resulting in evictions and foreclosures.
  • There was a global rise in unemployment levels.
  • Some countries are still recovering from financial losses.
  • Congress passed the Consumer Protection Act of 2009 the Dodd-Frank Bill of 2010 (Wall Street reform) as a result of financial mismanagement.

4. Natural Disasters (Early 21st Century)

Each of the following events drew extensive international support.

  • The Tohoku Tsunami (2011), caused by a 9.0 earthquake off the coast of Japan, led to the meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The death toll reached 18,400.
  • The Boxing Day Tsunami (2004) was caused by a 9.2 earthquake in the Indian Ocean. 230,000 were killed in 14 different countries.
  • Myanmar (also known as Burma) was hit by Cyclone Nargis (2008), which caused the death of more than 146,000 people.
  • The Haiti Earthquake (2010) resulted in the death of over 316,000 people.

5. Social Networking Revolution (2000-present)

  • Our students are Digital Natives !
  • Social networking sites are used by 73 percent of U.S. adults ( Pew Internet Project ).
  • There are over one billion Facebook users, and that network is now ten years old.
  • Over six billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube , with 100 hours of video uploaded every minute!
  • Legal disputes are now common between potential college students, potential employees, current employees, and companies and universities over privacy violations concerning social media sites.
  • We are beginning to see legal disputes concerning government agencies monitoring Americans' digital traffic.

What recent and potential historical events are you discussing with your students?

Course Activity: Discussing the Impact of Historical Events   Task...

Course Activity: Discussing the Impact of Historical Events

Task        Participating in a Peer Discussion

When you participate in a job, a club, or a committee, you have opportunities to engage in collaborative discussions. In this assignment, you will get the chance to hone this skill by preparing and actively leading a peer discussion on how historical events have impacted literature.

These Discussion Tips will help you as you work through this task.

Synthesize and evaluate your thoughts and response. Researching and preparing for a discussion helps to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of a collaborative discussion. To start forming your response, write down your initial thoughts on your chosen topic.

Here are the questions to use when formulating your thesis:

  • How did historical events affect American literature? (Sample question: How did the Civil War affect American Literature?)
  • How did the Civil War transform American literature?
  • Does literature affect history?
  • What events were affected by literature?
  • How does history affect current pieces of writing? Or does it only affect literature from the same period?

What is your thesis? What statements and evidence will you use to support your thesis?

Record the names of the discussion participants below. If you organized the discussion, record how you know the other person, and summarize how you chose and invited him or her and how you organized the time and place for the discussion.

Record the questions asked by your partner as well as your responses to these questions.

During the discussion, what main points did your partner make supporting or opposing your thesis? What new questions or thoughts were raised about your thesis?

Describe the discussion of the thesis. How balanced was the participation? What would you change if you could do it again? What insights did you gain about your thesis from discussing it with others? What did you learn from discussing your peer's thesis?

Did your partner change your viewpoint on the topic discussed? What was discussed that changed your initial response?

Answer & Explanation

  • The most significant effect of the Civil war to the American literature was Regionalism, it includes and supports by magazine publication which is an explosive in nature, writings about the curiosity about the different parts of United States after the war, and for a rural past a sense of nostalgia has seemed to be slipping out of the way. 
  • The Civil war saved the Union and ended slavery. After the war, the great writers who fight using the power of their inks including their writings' followers, survived the war. The bigger picture is, the great national tragedy occured (but ended) which let the United States born protagonists - better, deeper and wiser than before.
  • Literature does affect history whether writings are explicitly or implicitly involved. Literature leads people intellectually and emotionally because it deepens ones understanding of his own history, society and individual lives. As to this connection of people and literature, we can say that literature affects people and vice versa.
  • There were a lot of traumatic happenings in US history since WWII, like the assassination of Kennedy, the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban missiles crisis, the Watergate scandal, the Iran-Contra scandal, the seizure of the US embassy in Iran, the events of 9/11, the Iraq War, the Gulf War, the Afghanistan wars, and so on— and all of these events have literature writing that is significant to the society to help them fight and understand the reality.
  • Postwar, non-war related and other historical literatures do affects our writing today. One, language invention. History contains the languages that we still using as of today. There are many words or languages that was created back favoring as in the present time. Second, basis of the study. Literatures that have been written during those years are the greatest related literature for studying and understanding culture, custom and society. Lastly, literature preserves that history. Even how tragic the events back then, literature let us view how great the people are who fight back and wins the peace and independence we have right now.

B.   Literature: The Novelty of History 

  • "A Tale Intended to be After the Fact..." this statement views that history was influenced by American Literature. There is a beautiful story after the tragedy, a beautiful disaster as they win. There has been a connection of history between different periods of writing and literary.  This is how Stephan Crane introduced his harrowing story, "The Open Boat".
  • Americans have fought wars, within their own country as well as abroad. Reasons of fighting is within the need of being independent from the colonist and expansion of national boundaries. Herein, the history of America writes down why is is the United States we are living right now.
  • Literature helps the present to shape and mold the society better than before.

I am very sorry, as much as I want and can help you to answer Part C to G, it is impossible as you need to do it with a partner. It will be a violation if we answer it here even without a real discussion partner. I hope everything above helps you. Thank you so much!
