Thesis-driven, argumentative paper – Nature of Immigration in American History

Using the sources and information from the course to contextualize the immigrant experience, write an argumentative paper about the nature of immigration in American history. 
The primary sources are to be accounts from immigrants about life in the United States.
Use the sources in the attachment and also the course sources, which I am also attaching.
The primary sources must be the driving evidence in the paper, but you must also use the material from the course to contextualize all four sources.
The paper must be a thesis-driven, argumentative paper. This is not a report where you simply relate the information in the sources or provide an account of an immigrant’s life. Instead, you are to take the information from the sources to come to a central conclusion about the history of American immigration and make an argument about that history. For example, some questions that could be the core of the paper: Is the United States a nation of immigrants or a nation of some desired immigrants? Is the history of immigration in the United States the story of multiculturalism or the story of assimilation to a set of cultural values shared by all Americans? Going with our course theme, what is an American and how do immigrants change or reinforce certain conceptions of Americanness? You are not bound to these questions and in fact are encouraged to devise your own approach to American immigration history

The paper needs to be 4-5 pages, double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12 point font, and have 1-inch margins all the way around. Any paper shorter than four full pages or longer than five full pages will be docked points. Any paper not following the stated formatting requests or primary source requirements will be docked points. Whenever you quote or paraphrase from the course material, cite using Chicago Manual Style and footnoting. Note: The 4-5 page requirement is to be considered without footnotes, i.e. you need to have 4 full pages without footnotes and no more than 5 full pages without footnotes 
A successful paper will have a clear and original thesis that provides a sophisticated argument about the history of immigration and ethnicity. The organization of the successful paper will be evident, easily followed, and have excellent transitions. The evidence will be used to support every point and will make sense and relate to the argument of the paper. Evidence will be integrated into the argument not simply placed in the paragraph (Standalone quotes will be docked points). The paper will be logically argued with connections that illuminate the thesis and offer a unique perspective on immigration and ethnicity in American history. Finally, the paper will have excellent grammar, diction, sentence structure, correct use of punctuation, proper citations, and generally free of errors. p(6).
