Do some research into your own personal or family ‘immigrant experience.’ Write a 2000-word essay (7-8 double-spaced pages) that summarizes your personal or ancestral immigrant experience. Use at least 5 peer-reviewed academic secondary sources (other than textbooks), such as books and articles. In addition, you can use oral sources, diaries, and any other materials that can shed light on your family’s immigrant experience.
Your essay should try to address the following questions: from where did your ancestors immigrate? When and why? Where did they establish themselves? What was their experience?
Your essay must include the following:
A title page with your name, date, and a descriptive title of paper (do not title your paper “Final Paper” or “Immigration Essay”)
Footnotes or endnotes that cite sources using Chicago style for Notes and Bibliography.
A separate bibliography.
Your essay must rely on peer-reviewed academic sources.
You must have citations in your essay. Otherwise, your essay will not receive a passing grade.
Do not overuse quotes. It is better to use your own words (rather than the authors’) and then cite this information properly
Make sure you have title page and a descriptive title (unique title) for your essay.
Assignments must be typed and double spaced. Standard 12 pt font, cursive or non-cursive, double spaced text, standard 2.5 cm margins, 11” X 8 ½” paper. Make sure to have a title page with your name, name of course, essay title, and the instructor’s name.
A minimum of five (5) texts (books and/or journal articles) must be used in writing the essay. (The textbook may be used but it does not count towards the five required texts). Make sure that you choose the most appropriate books/journal articles. Internet sources should not be used. Only use the Internet to locate and read scholarly journals.
