I am a diplomatic historian without expertise in US immigration. My chair wants me to have the last of my main three units to be about immigration to the US since 1965. It is a writing intensive class for first-year students at RISD, an elite art school with average writers from all over the world. Lots of Chinese, Koreans, and Americans from East Asian ancestral backgrounds, by the way. I would like to have a module with a pro-immigration essay contrasted with an essay more critical of immigration along with primary sources students can cite to bolster their analysis of these two secondary sources. I discovered Roy Beck, The Case against Immigration (Norton), chapter 1, for the latter, but wonder if I could do better. My model here is Pearson Publishing's Major Problems series, but I cannot find what I want in what the series provides on this issue. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, including ideas for lectures, video, or other classroom activities.
Thank you for your help!
