please read the prompt carefully
For this assignment, you need to analyze this primary source — demonstrate that you can connect this text with relevant historical information. The following questions can guide your writing:
What do Mary Paik Lee’s observations about her parents and laborer community reflect about family, social structures, and beliefs of Korean immigrants at the time? In what ways do her family’s status and experiences reflect broader trends and characteristics of early Korean pioneers in the United States in the early-20th century?
Most importantly, you must utilize your textbook to establish historical context and integrate concrete examples from the excerpt above. Remember, when you place any primary source into context, you should be choosing relevant details rather than taking an overly broad approach to Asian American history. Also, should you choose to quote material, make sure you are not quoting excessively. The focus of your writing should be on your analysis, not how much you copied and pasted from the excerpt.
Adhere to appropriate MLA/APA formatting (Links to an external site.).
References to the textbook should include page references, if page numbers are available. You do NOT need a works cited page for this assignment.
Avoid outside research for this assignment. Classroom materials are sufficient.
