Question description

The readings for this module emphasized that although whole families often made the long and arduous journey from South to North together, the prospects that awaited them on the other side often differed greatly between individual family members. For this assignment, reflect on these differences, considering how the family unit was forced to change and adapt to meet the challenges unique to life in America.

Using the module readings, Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research the early twentieth century experiences of the Mexican immigrants. Then, respond to the following:

  • Examine how the roles of men, women, and children changed because of this migration. What new demands emerged for each group, and how did they seek to meet these new challenges while still maintaining the overall structure of the family. Be as specific as possible, referring wherever possible to examples from the textbook for support.
  • How did these changes in the traditional roles impact assimilation? Were men, women, or children more likely to assimilate given these newfound roles and why?
