Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.

Here’s a reading we did a few weeks ago that you can refer to.

1. Discuss the Joseph Genetin-Pilawa (2014, September 15). “Native Americans in 19th Century Washington.” (链接到外部网站。) video. Highlights? Critiques? Thoughts? Eye-opening facts? Please describe what you took in.

2. Discuss the NPR Morning Edition (2016, July 27). “Slave Labor And The ‘Longer History’ Of The White House” [Interview with Clarence Lusane]. (链接到外部网站。) radio interview. Highlights? Critiques? Thoughts? Eye-opening facts? Please describe what you took in.

1. Discuss the Hedrick Smith Productions (1999). Duke Ellington’s Washington: The Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of a Neighborhood (链接到外部网站。) documentary video. Highlights? Critiques? Thoughts? Eye-opening facts? Please describe what you took in and how it ties into the larger themes in AMST 140.

2. Optional (depending on access — try looking up in “incognito mode” via Google Chrome): Discuss the Washington Post (2018, April 2). “The Four Days in 1968 that Reshaped D.C.,” (链接到外部网站。) interactive article. Highlights? Critiques? Thoughts? Eye-opening facts? Please describe what you took in and how it ties into the larger themes in AMST 140.

For either prompt, please consider the contrast between the DC that existed for White and Black Washingtonians between 1877 and 1974 and the DC that President Andrew Shepherd (as portrayed by Michael Douglas) depicts in the film The American President (1995) (especially between the 0:57 second mark and the 1:20 minute mark). Excerpt here:

1. Discuss the HBO, The Nine Lives of Marion Barry (2010) (链接到外部网站。) and the PBS (2014). The Education of Michelle Rhee. Frontline, (链接到外部网站。) documentary videos. Any parallels between Barry’s years as mayor and Rhee’s experiences as chancellor in DC and for DC Public Schools? What about Barry and Rhee enabled their initial success? What about Barry, Rhee, and/or the state of DC at the time enabled their failures (and downfalls)? Other highlights? Any critiques? Other thoughts? Any eye-opening facts? Lessons learned? Please describe what you took in and how it ties into the larger themes in AMST 140.
