Question Description

Research Paper on the events of September 11, 2001(6 - 8 pages double spaced, 12-point Times New Roman font).

  • The essay should support a thesis statement with information gained from research or investigation.
  • The paper will not be just a report presenting information, but will be an essay that carefully examines and presents your own historical interpretation of the topic you have chosen and your interpretation of the information you have gathered.
  • The paper may include consideration of problems and solutions, define key terms, or refute arguments against your thesis statement.
  • Approach this assignment with an open and skeptical mind, then form an opinion based on what you have discovered.
  • You must suspend belief while you are investigating and let the discoveries shape your opinion. (This is a thesis-finding approach.)
  • Once you have found your thesis, write the paper to support it.

You will use some of the following critical thinking skills in this process:

  1. Choosing an appropriate topic, limiting the topic
  2. Gathering information, summarizing sources
  3. Analyzing and evaluating sources
  4. Defining key terms
  5. Synthesizing information, comparing and contrasting sources
  6. Testing a thesis, making an historical argument, using refutation
  7. Amassing support for a position
  8. Documenting sources

Because this may be a longer essay than you have written before and a complex process is involved, it is recommended that you complete this paper using the following steps:

  1. Choose a topic related to U.S. History after 1877 (Chapters 16-28) that you would truly like to explore and that you are willing to spend some time on. Your chosen topic should be focused. Pose a question that you really want to answer. You may want to begin with more than one topic in mind. It is highly recommend you discuss your topic ideas with your instructor.
  2. Do some preliminary reading on the topic(s). You may use the textbook for ideas, but your sources should go beyond the textbook. Refine your topic. Summarize your topic, your interest in the topic, the questions you want to answer, and a hypothesis you want to test.
  3. Gather information from a variety of sources. Use a minimum of four sources for your paper, and at least one must be a primary source.
    • Examples of primary sources are ones that are used in our discussion forums 2 - 8.
    • They are sources that are contemporary to the times under investigation.
    • An example of a secondary source is our textbook, though the textbook also contains excerpts of primary sources, which you may use as a source in your essay.
  4. Outline the results of your research and then plan for your essay (note you are not required to submit the outline).
  5. Write the final draft and be sure to include a Works Cited List; be sure to use the correct MLA documentation style. Be sure your paper also has a title page. The title and works cited pages do not count toward the page count for the paper.

I am attaching the paper in a Word document. I did not do a title page. If you will let me know what all needs to be on the title page I can do one for you. You will also need to change the header to your last name as well as change the information on the beginning of the first page. I have highlighted all that needs to be changed such as name, professor's name and course name. Please let me know if you have any questions or need me to add or change anything. Thank you.

September 11th, 2001: Preventing History from Repetition
History is taught and analyzed in order to prevent our country from letting history repeat
itself. On September 11th, 2001 (9/11), the United States of America was changed forever. It is a
day that will never be forgotten. Nineteen men hijacked four fuel-loaded US commercial
airplanes crashing two into the World Trade Center in New York City, one into the Pentagon
Building in Washington and one into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. On this day 2,977
people were killed by this terrorist attack (“September 11, 2001”,2016). Over 400 were
firefighters and police officers This was the biggest terrorist attack that has ever happened on
United States soil. The attack had an impact on our country in many ways such as our economy,
our health care and, most importantly, our immigration stand point. Although immigration laws
can be a touchy subject for many, due to the United States being known as the land of the free,
having stronger immigration laws prior to September 11th, 2001 could have prevented the
nation’s worst terrorist attack. Fortunately, new immigration laws have been implemented since
this life-changing attack, but is it enough? We must analyze the prevention steps taken since 9/11
on our economy, health care and immigration laws to determine if we have done everything that
we can as a nation or will history indeed repeat itself.

The attack on the World Trade Centers has economically changed our country. Osama
bin Laden, the leader of this terrorist attack, wanted to destroy our economy believing that by
destroying our economy he would destroy the strength of our nation. Unfortunately, we are a
nation that highly depends on the success of the economy. Fortunately, Osama bin Laden’s goal
was not met in this attack. That is not to say that this attack did not impact our economy. This
terrorist attack has...
