Question Description

Analytical Questions for Writing Assignment #6, Loewen, Chapter 9

After reading Chapter 8 in Lies My Teacher Told Me, answer the “analysis” portion of this writing assignment by answering the questions below:

  1. If you are familiar with photographs and stories of the Vietnam War, how do you feel about these being omitted from textbooks? What do you feel present-day students are missing out on?
  1. Why might publishers avoid including photographs of the Vietnam War in particular?
  1. How has the mystification of the Vietnam War informed discussions of contemporary war and violence in the United States, according to Loewen (e.g. the War on Terror, Afghanistan, Iraq, war against ISIS, drone strikes, etc.)?
  2. Each responsive writing must be a MINIMUM 500 words, typed and double-spaced, ANDconform to the format outlined below. You CANNOT use a font that is larger than 12 point (I’d recommend Times Roman). Many students find that they can and want to write much more.
    • If your paper fails to meet this MINIMUM REQUIREMENT, you will receive a 0 for the assignment.
  3. You SHOULD NOT AND CANNOT do any outside research to complete these assignments. Papers will be subject to originality analysis by Turnitin.com. If Turnitin.com shows that you have included outside resources, then you will receive a 0% for that paper.
  4. Paper Format
    • Part 1:
      • Head this part, “Summary.” Because you are submitting electronically, you do not need a formal heading with you name, my name, the class, etc. Just put the heading at the top and begin writing.
