Research Assignment

Essay #3 is a research-based, argumentative paper (7 body paragraphs minimum) that begins with a question you have about our immigration system or US/Mexico border policies after reading the three books for the class:  The Distance Between Us, Tell Me How It Ends, and The Line Becomes a River.

The best topics tend to be the ones that matter to you personally. You will research until you have some answers to your question, and then you will present it back to your reader as a thesis-driven argument (NOT just an informative paper).
