Migration, Immigration, and the United States

Assignment Details Migration, Immigration, and the United States “Unless you’re … Native American, you came from someplace else.” – President Barack Obama (The New York Times, 2013) Migration and immigration are part of the American story. People have migrated or immigrated for different reasons: freedom, sanctuary, or forced against their will. Everyone is connected to a migration story that reflects identity, cultures, and values. These stories make up the American identity. For your Discussion Board post, consider the development of different regions in the United States: North, South, East, and West. Discuss how internal migration (i.e., moving west for opportunity, or moving from south to north for freedom) and immigration (coming to America) affected and shaped these regions. Think about the following for your response: Agriculture Way of life Food Technology Environment Feel free to bring in personal perspectives based on where you live.

American Revolution

In at least two well-developed paragraphs discuss: Was the American Revolution, revolutionary? Meaning, many historians argue that yes, a new government was created and amazingly survived. That is astounding and they were really creating something wholly different than other governments from around the world. However, for many people their lives the day after the war did not look any different from their lives before the war. They had the same jobs, the same economic status, political benefits or exclusions. Positions of power did not change for many white men and women and certainly not for American Indians and slaves. With these two different ideas in mind about the Revolution answer the question: was the American Revolution revolutionary or not and be sure to support your answers with primary and secondary sources. You must only use the Galileo(Georgia Military College) or the course textbook. You must cite all direct quotes and paraphrased material with proper APA in-text citations in the paragraphs. At the bottom of your submission (right below the paragraphs), you must include an APA-style bibliography of all the sources you used.

Think piece

This assignment is a “think piece,” which is an essay that requires you to interact with a subject and develop your own interpretation based on that experience. After your initial analysis of a specific topic, you should synthesize that with other outside research to support your ideas. You should use a minimum of two other scholarly, peer-reviewed resources found in the APUS library. . Specifically for this assignment we will use an interactive map of westward expansion from 1860 to 1890. You can access it at this URL: https://ksps.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/akh10.socst.ush.now.westexpans/westward-expansion-18601890/ (The interactive map will often not work with Google Chrome). Once you have the map open, click on the boxes for Major Cities, Railroad Networks, Improved Agricultural Land, and States and Territories. At the bottom of the map, you will notice the decades 1860, 1870, 1880, and 1890. Click on each of these decades in succession and you will see the ways in which the country changed. The goal of this assignment is for you to interpret, synthesize, and analyze what you are seeing on the map. You will make a well-organized argument, support that through research, and then write a conclusion for your findings. Analysis is the process whereby the researcher separates something into its component parts. In an analytical essay, the writer examines a subject relative to its own terms, and explains the problem by studying the individual parts. In contrast, synthesis requires that the researcher examine individual unrelated parts in an effort to discover something new. A good essay will utilize both analysis and synthesis. Instead of examining the simple facts of a problem, the writer will go beyond the obvious, making connections between different pieces of evidence to discover something new. As an example, consider a modern map of the world illustrating the growth of the internet over the last thirty years. It demonstrates the new ways in which the world is connected by facilitating the spread of ideas through instantaneous communication. Access to much of the information that once required us to physically travel to a library is now accessible through a computer at home (or a mobile phone in your pocket). Social media has also given us the ability to discuss and debate ideas, not only with our friends and family, but with people we may have never met. We all have the power to disseminate knowledge around the globe within a matter of seconds. If you were writing a paper on this topic (this is an example only, as your paper will focus on the period from 1860 to 1890) you could analyze this larger topic by focusing on a specific aspect like use of the internet in online education. You might make the argument that the internet has enabled more non-traditional students to pursue a higher education. Your synthesis would include understanding the connections between your outside research and your argument. This essay should be at least three double-spaced pages of text (Times New Roman, font size 12) and you must consult a minimum of two academically credible sources. Bibliographies and citations can be in MLA, APA, or Chicago format. If you are a history major, we strongly suggest that all citations adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style. This essay needs to be turned in through the assignment section for grading. If you use any of the information from your sources word-for-word, you must cite the source by using endnotes or footnotes, and enclose those words within quotation marks. If you read the information and write it in your own words and it is not common knowledge, then you must cite the source because you are paraphrasing someone’s information. The short paper must include a cover page with your name, course number and course title, instructor’s name, and date. You must also include a bibliography at the end of your paper. While composing your paper, use proper English. Do not use abbreviations, contractions, informal language, passive voice, or first/ second person (I, you, we, our, etc). Before submitting your paper, check your grammar and use spell check. Remember, the way you talk is not the way you write a paper. Please label your paper as follows: lastnamefirstnameHIST102ShortPaper.
