Assignment: Long Paper #1
Based on the book Farewell to Manzanar, write a paper of at least five pages that answers the following question, elaborating with evidence and detail from the book as necessary.
What were some of the ways that Japanese Americans responded to the difficulties of life in internment camps?
Other Considerations
The best essays will be organized by categories and include multiple examples to support those categories. For example, one could argue that Japanese Americans responded to the difficult conditions of internment by organizing a worker’s strike. It would show a higher level of analysis, however, to argue that Japanese Americans organized direct resistance to conditions in the camps, then use the worker’s strike and at least one additional example to support that point.
Papers should be approximately five pages, with no more than one-inch margins, double-spaced, in twelve-point font. Do not “double-double space” between paragraphs. Papers should have introduction and conclusion paragraphs and use proper grammar and spelling. Cite your sources using any standard system of citation, providing the following information: author, title of document, and page number.
You must use evidence from the book to support your points.
