Begin thinking about what it would have been like to be a member of one of the immigrant groups discussed so far. Then think about your responses to the following queries:
- What would have been your expectations from America?
- What would have been your fears?
- What sort of reception would you have received (as a representative of your race, gender, and nationality)?
- Would you have tried to assimilate? Why or why not? If so, how?
Prepare an outline with your responses. Use a pre-writing technique such as bubbling, freewriting, or outlining to organize your thoughts on this imagined experience. These notes will form the foundation of your course project.
Write a 1–2-page outline in the Microsoft Word format.
