Identify and discuss messages created by the immigrant rights organizations in 2001 for the DREAMers and what were the positive and negative aspects of these messages intended to transform them into “exceptional immigrants”?

Answer the four questions below in essay format. Each answer to each of the questions must be between 1- 2 pages, so you must submit a final between 6-8 pages total. Your answers must be based on your reading of the book: The DREAMers: How the Undocumented Youth Movement Transformed the Immigrant Rights Debate. By, Walter J. Nichols. This final is not a research paper so you must not use any outside sources. If you use outside sources, you will get a zero (0) score for that particular question where the outside source is used.

Based on the Story of the DREAMers as told in the book, explain and analyze the most important aspects of the struggle for a legal status that led to the creation of this movement.

  1. Identify and discuss messages created by the immigrant rights organizations in 2001 for the DREAMers and what were the positive and negative aspects of these messages intended to transform them into “exceptional immigrants”?
  2. What disagreements over strategy emerged between the DREAMers and some of the immigrant rights organizations that led to the DREAMers breaking away?
  3. “Undocumented, Unafraid and Unapologetic” became the new message crafted by the DREAMers, discuss why this new representation became a “coming out” moment for the undocumented youth?
  4. As part of their “multifront war” of trying to achieve victories, identify and discuss the laws that were passed at the state level in California and the policy enacted by the Obama administration, that would provide for Dreamers a “de-facto legality.”

Explore 1) John Updike’s story “A&P” in terms of mobility, freedom, and class as connected ideas, and 2) as a coming-of-age story where Sammy begins to see the need for and cost of independence/self-reliance.

This assignment asks that you develop further thoughts on the pursuit of happiness and the American Dream, two interrelated concepts/constructs—some would call them one and the same—that define/drive American culture. We also learned that the pursuit of happiness and the American Dream are becoming increasingly inaccessible and elusive, and that materialism, status, desire, and ambition—common indicators/measures of happiness—could serve as self-imposed obstacles and barriers to happiness as well.

In 800-900 words, you will primarily base your thoughts on the pursuit of happiness and the American Dream on ONE of the following prompts, and bring in personal observations and/or lived experiences as support.

· Explore 1) John Updike’s story “A&P” in terms of mobility, freedom, and class as connected ideas, and 2) as a coming-of-age story where Sammy begins to see the need for and cost of independence/self-reliance.

· Analyze John Cheever’s story “The Swimmer” in terms of materialism, consumption, and personal ambition, and as a critique of romanticizing or addicting to the pursuit of happiness and the American Dream excessively.

· Respond to the two magazine articles’ observations of and commentary on America today socially and economically, as relevant to the difficulties of living the American Dream and their impact on individual happiness.

Part II / Write an Exhibition Review

(for this Part you can choose any online exhibit you can find)

As we move our focus to the function of museums, this discussion board will help to turn attention to one of the most public expressions of the museum, the exhibition. For this DB you need to write a 500-word exhibition review. Choose an exhibition of any size in your location. Consider all aspects of it: who is the artist or artists, what works are included, what labels and text panels are included, are there other educational materials? Does the installation of the exhibition work well? Is anything less effective?

*As students live in a variety of locations, I will be flexible as to what constitutes an ‘Exhibition Review’ (be aware that small exhibitions with little accompanying material may be difficult to write about). But please do make every effort to visit a museum (check websites for free days and extended hours). If you are unable to physically go to a museum, an online exhibition will suffice, but it must be a ‘museum exhibition’. Some resources include: Smithsonian Institute American Art (http://americanart.si.edu/exhibitions/online/ (Links to an external site.)); National Women’s History Museum (https://www.nwhm.org/online-exhibits/ (Links to an external site.)); United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (http://www.ushmm.org/information/exhibitions/online-features/online-exhibitions (Links to an external site.)); National Museum of Natural History (http://www.mnh.si.edu/exhibits/virtual.html (Links to an external site.)); and you may find many more.

B) Write an essay in which you argue either 1) that nationalism has primarily been a force for good in Western history between 1715 and the present or 2) that nationalism has been a force for evil between 1715 and the present.

Why were the appeal and Supreme Court verdict so important?

In the Scottsboro Trials, nine black youths were unjustly convicted of raping two white women. Two cases went to the Supreme Court, which ruled that the defendants had not received fair trials because effective legal defense had not been provided and because African Americans were routinely excluded from juries. Ultimately, four were acquitted, but five served various prison terms. The racism of the U.S. legal system had been exposed to worldwide condemnation.To complete this assignment, watch the video below, then write a response to the prompts that follow.Emory University (2012, Feb 13).

How did the effects of the Great Depression increase racial tensions? Why would the Communist party defend the Scottsboro defendants, while the ACLU and NAACP merely condemn the trial? Why were the appeal and Supreme Court verdict so important? What long-term changes did this make in Alabama and throughout the United States? What role did scarcity play in increasing tensions not only for African-Americans, but minorities nationwide?Your response should be 3-4 paragraphs in length, and should meet the following criteria: It addresses all portions of the topic or prompt.
