Chinese immigrants believed they were going to find their American Dream when they risked everything to come to the United States instead they faced many hardships, Chinese immigration can be divided into three periods: 1849=1882, 1882-1965, and to present. With hard work and dedication they earned a good living but they faced many problems like The Chinese Exclusion Act, Anti-Chinese and many more problems. The First step of doing the project is picking your topic, One way to pick a is to look on the list provided to you by your teacher and narrow down the choices to a few that interest you and also interest your audience. After the topic is picked start searching for information, use note cards to write down the most important information on the note cards. Siteing the sources is a important thing to do when doing research so your teacher can check to see if your information is valid, When getting your information from some a source is if a reliable, reputable author or group of authors, ask your self these questions. Does it have a date and publisher? So you can see if the publisher is reliable. Is the source valid? You have to be able to find similar information in others sources, Also make sure you copied down the information correctly so there is no confusion when presenting the information, if I could change anything it would be to use my time wisely. What I learned from this project is that the early Chinese immigrants had a profound effect on America Socially, Politically, and Economically and helped to shape our Nation.
