Students will write one short academic paper (5-7 pages) that makes an argument on immigration in the United States. Students may use one of the suggested prompt.
Select one of the following prompts to answer.
How did the newly formed United States manage its immigrants?
How did immigrants become citizens?
How was whiteness constructed? Who was considered white and who was not? How did race and immigration overlap?
How immigrants experience their new American life?
The paper will build upon the knowledge learned in this course by answering the above prompt.
Students must answer the prompt in thesis statements for each essay – underlined in the submission. The rest of the essay should serve to advance this thesis that answers the prompt.
Sources must be clearly cited using MLA or Chicago Style
The citations should be specific as possible (for readings this includes the author’s last name and page number, for multimedia the title of the podcast/video is sufficient, and for lecture it should include the date). Specific evidence includes brief quotes (no more than 3 lines).
Quoted, paraphrased, and summarized information from a specific source requires citation.
Works Cited/Bibliography is not required.
Avoid outside research – this is meant to demonstrate what you have learned from assigned material. That said, if you want to use material you are already familiar with in addition to required sources you may do so.
To support your argument, provide analysis of the examples that provide explanation and connection to the thesis.
Strong essays will be organized chronologically and engage with multiple groups of people living in America that identify as immigrants or that native-born white Americans label as “outsider” or “other.” Strong essays will also make connections to ideas and concepts covered in the corresponding two weeks of the course.
The essay should not try to engage with every part of the course covered thus far. Rather it should reflect the ability to select the sections and examples most pertinent to the argument.
