Choose an ethnic group to which you personally belong. If you identify with more than one group, choose the group with which you most identify or about which you would like to learn more.
o Using any of the resources identified above, research to determine if the group colonized or if it immigrated to the United States. Did the group face prejudice, segregation, racism or any combination of the three? If so, how and why? Include your research findings in your essay. You may search through chapters of the text as part of your research.
First you must decide what your "ethnic group" is. (For instance, you might call yourself "Scottish" or "English".)
You must then research whether members of that group were among the original colonists of the US (thus the English were, for instance), or mostly immigrated at a later stage (this would apply e.g. to Iranians and Polish people).
Lastly, you must research the response to that group, by the people who were already living in the US.
All the best,
