This Discussion Board calls for a measure of creative role playing.
- Take on the persona of a newly arriving immigrant to America at some point in the 20th century.
- You can decide your race, gender, and “lot in life.”
- Describe your life and circumstances.
- Where did you come from?
- Where are you going in America?
- Why did you come to America and leave your “old world” behind?
- Though you are role playing, use concrete historical context and detail to definitively place your character in 20th century American immigration history.
