Teaching 9/11 in schools as an academic critical thinking case study

The following is my best academic approach for how academic professionals interested in controversial current events and history can teach them.

What happened on 9/11 is a such a controversial current event.

When I teach history courses, I open the conversation with a challenge to students: "If you could know anything in history, if you could learn what really happened, what would you want to know?" I have them think, reflect, and then offer to have supplemental teaching units on whatever the class votes as their topics of greatest interest as a "reward" if their academic progress in the regular curriculum is on-pace and meets our academic target for class GPA (economics of incentives in action).

The purpose of this assignment is to teach the tools of history of who, did what, when, where, and the approach to learn additional facts of the preceding for students to make their own analysis to respond to the subjective question of “why” on topics with strong intrinsic interest for students.

Raw Story: Geraldo ‘much more open minded’ about 9/11 thanks to NYC television ads

By Stephen C. Webster
Sunday, November 14th, 2010

A new television ad campaign featuring the family members of 9/11 victims has succeeded in garnering what 9/11 activists have lacked for years: serious treatment in the mainstream media.

Granted, that media was Fox News host Geraldo Rivera, who in a former iteration ran a Jerry Springer-like daytime talk show. That and, the last time Rupert Murdoch's conservative-tilted television channel seriously talked about issues pertaining to 9/11, they were calling for a public official's resignation over a signature on one of the "9/11 truth" petitions.

Still, at the end of his serious-yet-brief treatment of questions surrounding the collapse of World Trade Center 7 (WTC 7, pictured), Rivera admitted that the activists had made him "much more open minded" about questions surrounding 9/11.

 CIA created safe haven for Nazis in US

A report the Justice Department has been trying to hide for the past four years offers the most detailed account yet of the CIA's efforts to protect known Nazi war criminals in the United States.

The report, obtained by the New York Times, may be the most concrete account yet of the role that prominent members of Germany's Nazi party played in the early, formative years of the CIA, following World War II. It alleges the CIA created a "safe haven" for Nazis believed to be of use to the US's Cold War efforts.

Mediaite: 9/11 Truther Ed Asner Offers Conspiracy Theories on The Adam Carolla Show

by Ray Rahman | 5:03 pm, November 12th, 2010

Did you know that Ed Asner, of The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Hollywood in general, is a 9/11 Truther? Adam Carolla didn’t seem to when, on his podcast, Asner started to offer his views as to why the government was behind that Twin Towers attack. Here we go.

“No high-rise has ever gone down by fire,” Asner explains. “Those buildings fell at the rate of gravity in ten seconds, flat.” He served up some more supposed “facts” as to why the buildings had to have been brought down by domestically planted explosives rather than internationally hateful terrorists. Carolla tried to debunk the conspiracy theory by asking why the surreptitious government of Asner’s mind, if it was so keen on instigating a war, didn’t go ahead and plant WMDs in Iraq. “Because it wasn’t the same department of government,” Asner replied, chuckling at Carolla’s naiveté.

Asner continued:

Online Poll show CIA planned 9/11 Most likely true

A poll posted at Trutv's website asks [which is] "most likely to be true". Pitted against common myths and folklore, the CIA planned 9/11 ranked #1 with almost 30% of the vote. The poll is still open, go over and vote. There is also an opportunity to submit your own "conspiracy tip" as well. I submitted a link to Jon Cole's latest thermate experiment. Feel free to submit your own too.

vote Most likely to be true is
CIA planned 9/11
Government contact with ETs
Illuminati control world events
Global warming is a hoax
Moon landings were faked

Just an observation, it's funny that 9/11 truthers are often conflated with moon landing deniers when so few often deny its authenticity. Maybe its because when they got back some 300 scientists around the world received moon rocks? I'd like to see 300 scientists around the world get WTC dust samples. I would have liked to see how holocaust denial stacked up too.

God's speed all..
