Using one text we have read in the class (an article of My parents were deported) as an inspiration, write a research paper that compares and contrasts the place and time the author is writing about with the place and time you live in. The central question you should be examining is whether the place and time you are living offers more options for you and your community to get an education and thrive or fewer options compared to the world this authors writes about. Or perhaps things have not changed enough or only improved in certain ways while getting worse in other ways. Explain your argument in detail and use research from legitimate sources to support your claim. Use at least once source from the library, and one APPROVED internet source. You may also use field research. This paper should be written in the style of comparison and contrast essay with a heavy focus on research to prove your points. Make sure to consider issues such as race, class, gender, sexuality, religion and other aspects of your identity as you compare your experience to the author’s. Also think of how factors such as economic conditions, family situations, war, peace, and social movements of the times may affect the people and places you are writing about.
