Writing Prompt: Latino communities are immigrant communities; issues of immigration status affect many of our families both directly and indirectly. Our community as a whole is subject to the anti-immigrant and anti-Latino sentiments that result from the conflictive arena of migration policy, regardless of our immigration or citizenship status. What do you think is the most salient factor for Latino political empowerment with reference to migration and migration status? What do you see as the central obstacle to Latino empowerment that is related to migration? What kinds of strategies and tactics for political empowerment would address that central obstacle and allow for the Latino community to empower itself and influence migration policy? What are our authors saying about this issue? What do you think?
Refer to your notes on the readings in responding to the essay question; refer to as many of the required readings as you can. At the end of your essay you should include a complete reference list, correctly listing all sources. The essay answer should be about 7 pages long and should include at least seven references. Focus on migration of Latinos to the US and make explicit connections to the content of class discussions and readings. See grading rubric below. General comments for writing papers: 1. Structure your papers around your thesis; your argument; your response to the prompt. a. each section of your paper should accomplish a specific part of your answer b. introduce your paper with a thesis statement (or a series of thesis statements) c. write about what other analysts have found in relation to your thesis d. tell us what you conclude, based on your research and review of materials 2. To make your analysis hang together, write analytical transitions between the sections of your paper, making it clear how one section leads to the next and how the sections are related to your thesis. Do this AFTER you write the sections. 3. Your introduction should clearly identify your thesis statement. 4. Don’t describe the stages of your experience in writing the paper (such as “at first I thought … but then …). Instead, focus on the final results of your research and your final analysis. 5. Interpret and comment on your quotations. Follow the quote with your interpretation. 6. PROOF READ and then ask a friend to proof read again. (very important ) 7. Use an active as opposed to a passive voice (example of passive voice: The issue was protested by Latinos. Active voice: Latinos protested by doing X, Y, and Z.) 8. Double space (ALWAYS) and justify to the left 9. List references at the end, including author, date, title (if from an edited volume, include the volume’s editor and title), place published, and publisher.
