You want to aim for a three paragraph response (15-20 sentences) to the question. This activity will ask you to pull from themes found in the readings, poetry, videos, or primary sources and connect those ideas in answering the reading response questions.
Responses may include critical (but respectful) counter-arguments. You can reference additional information from outside research (with appropriate links or sources cited) as long as it adds to a better understanding of your argument or reflection.
What are some of the unique issues and concerns that Asian Americans experience in regards to migration and immigration, and how do these issues affect how we perceive of race and ethnicity? How does understanding the longer history of America’s influence in other parts of “Asia” help us to understand the diverse experiences and communities that make up Asian America? What are some migration stories that you would like to know more about or have helped you broaden your interpretation of “Asian American”?
1. Please be sure to choose two of the readings and one video from this week to cite in your response to explain your points. Remember that this is a short reading response with a total of three paragraphs to serve as your response. To make it easier, have your first paragraph be about one reading and why you like that reading. The second paragraph should consider another reading’s points that you appreciated or found interesting and valuable. The third paragraph could be about a video from the reading list for this week that you also resonated with and explain how all three (two readings and video) add to your understanding or interpretation of Asian American history/Asian American Studies.
2. You must cite your readings for this assignment. When referencing the readings or videos, please use this format (author’s name, title of the reading or video, pg number if book or article, year it was published or released)
