Immigrant life in America from 1607 to the present, focusing on the urban immigrant experience from 1840 to 1924, the ironic persistence of nativism in a "nation of immigrants," the origins of modern immigration law, and the similarities between today’s immigrants and those from the past. Students write research papers on an immigrant found in their family tree.
By the end of the term, students should be able to: 1) Comprehend and articulate the events, trends, ideas, people, and laws that have shaped American immigration history; 2) analyze primary source documents involving immigration and synthesize from them demographic data about immigration history; 3) convey historical information and interpretations in a well-organized, sophisticated manner that follows proper rules of grammar and syntax in a style appropriate to the discipline; 4) demonstrate mastery of the citation rules of the history discipline.
