GUS 1174 Urban Affairs Response Paper: Towards Understanding Migration.
Can you help me understand this Sociology question?
This week, your assignment is to write a response paper.
- To reinforce an understanding of the core concepts including types, extent, challenges and consequences of migration
- To learn to synthesize material from the different lectures and write comprehensively
- To identify, understand and analyze data from different sources
Instructions for response paper:
- The paper should be 1000 words.
- The paper is due in two weeks
- You may discuss it with your classmates, but please don’t plagiarise
Structure of the response paper:
- Begin by providing a brief overview of migration (types, statistics, examples)– here is where you can use the previous two discussion board responses.
- Then address the various methods by which migration is studied/understood. Comment on the pros and cons of these methods
- Next, compare the experiences of domestic and international migration using examples from the migration narratives you read today (refer to slides 4 and 5 for the specific questions you might ask).
- Finally address why we cannot ignore migration and need to understand it better. Look up (from weeks 1 and 2) the challenges of migration and include these in your response, and include them in your discussion for this section
- Feel free to use additional (non-Wikipedia) sources, include charts, graphs etc.
- Use any citation format that you like
Feel free to contact me for clarifications/questions.
