American History homework (week 2)

This Discussion Board calls for a measure of creative role playing.

  • Take on the persona of a newly arriving immigrant to America at some point in the 20th century.
    • You can decide your race, gender, and “lot in life.”
  • Describe your life and circumstances.
    • Where did you come from?
    • Where are you going in America?
    • Why did you come to America and leave your “old world” behind?
  • Though you are role playing, use concrete historical context and detail to definitively place your character in 20th century American immigration history.
