One aspect of historical

 

research and inquiry is to

 

cluster events and concepts

 

into meaningful groupings,

 

sometimes by time period.

 

Use the table below to

 

organize the events above

 

by their correct era. As an

 

example, the first event has

 

been completed.

 


 

Task 2: A Nation of Immigrants

 

In this task, you will reference your notes from Task 1 and any additional sources you gather

 

in order to create a slideshow presentation that responds to the following prompt:

 

The United States is often called a nation of immigrants, and yet US history reveals many

 

examples of anti-immigrant sentiment, actions, and legal restrictions. Which is true ?that

 

America is a nation of immigrants or that it is a nation that does not support immigration?

 

To successfully answer this prompt, reference and cite historical and recent events to support

 

your argument. You don?t need to include all the information from your notes in the tables

 

above, but citing certain events or terms will strengthen your argument. Reference the

 

Process section below to help create your presentation. When you have finished your

 

slideshow, use the dropbox to submit it to your teacher.

 

Note: Your teacher may ask you to share the presentation with others in your class and have

 

a discussion about this issue.

Process

Follow the steps below to complete your presentation, and use the links provided to assist

 

with your research and writing. When you have finished your slideshow, use the dropbox to

 

submit it to your teacher.

 

1. Gather sources. Before creating your presentation, gather resources to build your

 

argument and support your thesis. For each source, consider the following questions:

 


 

Who authored the document?

 


 

What is the purpose of the document?

 


 

When was the document written?

 


 

How will this document help answer the prompt?

 

2. Read and evaluate sources. Next, examine each source and think about how you will

 

use it to support your argument and presentation. Be an active researcher by asking the

 

following questions about each source you reference:

 


 

What is the credibility of the source?

 


 

Is there any noticeable bias?

 


 

How does the argument differ from others you have read?

 


 

What is the value of the resource to the topic you are investigating?

 

3. Form your argument. Now that you have analyzed resources to use as evidence, revisit

 

the prompt question, and develop your argument.

 


 

Make a particular effort to match the evidence in your sources to the points in your

 

argument.

 

4. Write your Presentation. As you create your presentation, use quotations from your

 

sources to support your argument. Keep the following ideas in mind:

 


 

Write out a presentation script, showing the order you will place each screen and

 

each screen?s content.

 


 

To avoid plagiarism, make sure to cite your resources properly with in-text citations

 

as well as a works-cited page at the end of your presentation.

 


 

When you finish, reread your presentation to make sure the prompt is answered,

 

and then proofread it to be sure your work doesn?t contain errors in grammar or

 

spelling.

 

5. Create your Presentation. Using slideshow software, create your presentation. Your

 

presentation should answer the prompt about the history of immigration in the United

 

States.

 

(optional) Feel free to record audio narration with your presentation. Including audio

 

narration can improve the clarity, quality, and organization of your presentation.
