Preparing for Exam 2

  • Take out a sheet of paper and write a short response to the videos, based on the prompts.
  • Let's get back to Wong.
    • What is the human trouble Wong's story is addressing?
    • Why does this story matter?
  • Now, let's look at today's DREAMers!!
    • What is a dreamer?
    • What parallels are there between Wong's immigration story and the dreamer from the video?

Exam strategizing

  • Immigration policy?
    • Get into your Reading discussion groups to begin working on your understanding of the text.
    • After you've had a chance to review your assigned portion, ask yourself what evidence the text gives you about immigration law (even if it's only inferred).
    • Use this to build your understanding of how modern immigration laws are similar or different to those in place during the Angel Island station era.
