WK3 Final Project Framework Worksheet

 

This worksheet will help you prepare for your final project by organizing the information that

 

you?ll need for your final paper and walking you through the process of defining your topic,

 

researching and analyzing primary and secondary sources, crafting a thesis, and creating an

 

annotated bibliography. Once you have completed the worksheet submit it to the online

 

classroom for grading.

 

After your instructor has graded the worksheet, please be sure to use it and the feedback

 

provided to you by your instructor as you construct your final project.

 

1. Statement of Topic:

 

What topic will you be researching for your final project? You have the choice of: African Americans

 

Native Americans

 

Women

 

Immigrants You must choose only ONE of the above groups. Which group have you chosen?

 

I have chosen Immigrants as the topic that I want to research for my final project.

 

2. Events

 

You will need to choose at least 4 specific events that you plan to discuss in your final project.

 

You should choose events that show how life in the United States changed over time for the

 

group that you chose. Two events must be from the period between 1877 and 1945 and two

 

events must be from the period 1945 to the present. On this worksheet and in your final project,

 

be sure to discuss the events you?ve chosen in the order that they happened. This will help you

 

put together a project that makes historical sense.

 

Event 1: 1877 to 1945

 

Event: The Chinese Exclusion Act

 

When: When did the event happen? Did it happen on a specific date? During a specific decade?

 

The Chinese Exclusion Act happened on May 6, 1882 Where: Where did the event happen? In a specific city, state, or region of the country?

 

Throughout the country?

 

The Chinese Exclusion Act happened throughout the United States.

 

Who: Who were the main people involved in the event? What specific group of people was

 

involved? Are there specific individuals associated with this event?

 

Denise Kearner protested at Chinese laborers claiming that they unfairly competed with white

 

laborers. This act, specifically targeted Chinese immigrants and placed a 10 year restriction on

 

entering the United States

 

Why: What events or issues contributed to this event happening?

 

The Chinese faces the most intense nativism of any immigrant group that migrated to America.

 

Most Asian immigrants that entered the United States through California Angel Island met severe

 

restrictions and prejudice. If the Chinese immigrants left America, they would have to obtain

 

certifications to re-enter, Congress refused the courts right to grant citizenship to Chinese

 

residents.

 

How: How is this event historically significant?

 

When the Chinese Exclusion Act expired in 1892, Congress extended it for another 10 years in

 

the form of a Geary Act this became permanent in 1902. This led to congress facing quotas on

 

the number of Chinese immigrants to enter the United States. Congress repealed all exclusions in

 

1943, setting the Chinese migration limit to 105 (Library of Congress, n.d).

 

Event 2: 1877 to 1945

 

Event: Triangle Shirtwaist Fire

Throughout the country?

 

The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York

 

Who: Who were the main people involved in the event? What specific group of people was

 

involved? Are there specific individuals associated with this event? Mostly women and young children and approximately 500 immigrants were caught in fire.

 

Hundreds of people died and many got injured. Rose Rosenfeld Freedman managed to escaped

 

and survive the fire and later joined a movement to change the inhumanity of the industrial

 

system in the Progressive Era.

 

Why: What events or issues contributed to this event happening?

 

The fire in the Triangle Shirtwaist was said to be the cause of unsafe working conditions because

 

there are no emergency exits and all the workers were locked in the building to make sure that

 

they work productively.

 

How: How is this event historically significant?

 

Progressive reformers came together to protest with the conditions found in the Triangle

 

Shirtwaist factory and enforced safety working conditions across the United States. (Hilary,

 

2011).

 

Event 3: 1945 to the present

 

Event: Immigration Act of 1965

Throughout the country?

 

The Immigration Act happened throughout the United States

 

Who: Who were the main people involved in the event? What specific group of people was

 

involved? Are there specific individuals associated with this event?

 

Asian and African immigrants were allowed passage to the United States without quotas, ending

 

the restriction that was once enacted by Congress. This Act led to the migration increase of

 

Latinos and Caribbean islanders (Marinari, 2014).

 

Why: What events or issues contributed to this event happening?

 

This Act created a chain migration from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East that literally shaped

 

the American society.

The event happened in Arizona, United States

 

Who: Who were the main people involved in the event? What specific group of people was

 

involved? Are there specific individuals associated with this event?

 

It targeted non-whites, allowing law enforcement officers to stop anyone who looks suspicious

 

and inquire about their immigration status. Mexican appeared to be the main target because of

 

the border that runs through the state of Arizona

 

Why: What events or issues contributed to this event happening?

my claim.

Immigration and how it reshaped the American society. Many Americans got mad when the

how this source will help you prove your thesis. Be sure to clearly identify which specific event

 

this source relates to. Here are some examples of annotations. The author talks about how this immigration laws gave and enforced police officers to stop any

 

person and request for identification and if they find them without proper documentation they are

 

subjected to deportation. This law caused discrimination for non-whites most especially to

 

Mexicans because of the numbers of illegal aliens. Myself, among many Americans consider this

 

law a serious case of discrimination but through this law came a positive outcome. It has reduced

 

the numbers of illegal aliens in the State of Arizona. I do believe that this article will support my

 

claim as I look back on discrimination back in the 1900s up to the present day as well.

 

4. Thesis Statement

 

Once you have analyzed your sources, consult the AWC?s ?Thesis Statement? and use the

 

writing center's Thesis Generator to craft a thesis on your topic, based on your findings from

 

your sources.

Thesis:

 

Living in America has always been every immigrants dream. A dream that sometimes required

 

big sacrifice and suffering to accomplish. As soon as they landed their foot in the land of the free

 

many they realized right away that America is not what they taught it would be. Immigrant faced

 

injustice treatment, racial discrimination and hard labor but you never give up on your dreams.

 

That?s what many immigrants did! They fought their way through hardship and stood strong

 

despite all the suffering and discrimination. This paper will discuss four main events immigrants

 

suffered and continue to suffer such as (I) The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. (II) The

 

Immigration Act of 1921. (III) The Immigration Act of 1965. (IV) The Arizona Anti-Immigration

 

Legislation 2010. From 1800?s up to the present day Americans has developed a passion of

 

creating immigration laws as a possible solution for a fair labor for White American only to

 

abolished these laws in the end. America will always need Immigrants because they work the

 

hardest and take pride of what they do and that they hold on to these belief that America is still

 

the land of opportunity where they can live the live they dream of for themselves and their

 

family.
