This Thesis explores the concept of American Exceptionalism and its recent rise in the post 9/11 world. The first section of this paper identifies how Exceptionalism has become a normal American concept since the events of September 11. The second section focuses on America's current standing in the world. The third section is based on the methods and strategies I intend to use in my classroom to address these problems of American Exceptionalism. The website can be found at the link below.
