Section outline

  • This week we wrap up our study of American Immigration.

    Please continue doing your work on the the "Immigration in the 20th Century" notes. These will be due by Thursday (Friday after the test at the latest) for full credit. Next week these notes will face a 25% reduction.

    Also important to complete by the end of the week are the next trio of workbook pages on modern immigration. These activities include: 1) "A New Wave of Immigration," on pages 498-99; 2) "Hai Phan's American Dream," on pages 500-1; and 3) "The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001," on pages 502-3. It is important to note that it will be necessary to read Chapter 20, Lesson 2 of the text in order to complete the first activity. The other two can be done without using the text.

    Friday, you will be taking the unit test on American Immigration. The exam, which is comprised entirely from your lecture notes, is an open-note test. So, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of having a complete set of notes to not only study, but have access to during the test.

    When all have taken the test, you will have the opportunity to submit test corrections for partial credit retrieval.
