Journal #6

For this week’s journal, focus on the reading by Prashad:

1> What are the reasons that immigrant workers are recruited to the U.S.?

2> When and where did South Asian immigrants first come to the U.S. and  why?

3> What changes in 1965 and why?

4> What role does the new Indian government play in fostering science and technology education, and why?

5> What does Prashad mean (on page 82) when he says “[w]e are good immigrants.”

CONNECTION TO CLASS:
In this telling of the history of South Asian immigration, what connection do you see to conversations/materials we have already talked about in class? What was already familiar to you?

CONNECTION TO THE WORLD:
Here, you have the opportunity to discuss the reading– what is interesting to you? What did you learn? What connections can you make to current events?
