ARTS 130: Thinking Piece 1

Prompt 1: Immigration Control in the United States

Immigration in the United States is a controversial issue. Each year millions of people cross the U.S. borders illegally in search of the American dream — a land of freedom and opportunity that can provide them and their families with a quality of life they cannot enjoy in their home countries. About 11-12 million undocumented immigrants currently live and work in the US today. Increased illegal immigration has generated divided opinions on the issue of immigration control—some say illegal immigrants should be deported while others say that there should be a path to amnesty or legal residency. Some would say that the standards for who is deemed worthy of citizenship are narrowing, reflecting an increasing call for the “perfect citizen.”

Prompt 2: European Migration Crisis

The Economist argues that “Europe should welcome persecuted people and carefully manage their entry into European society…Countries have a moral and legal duty to provide sanctuary to those who flee grave danger.”

Read the short article and answer the following question: Do you agree or disagree with this position?

This assignment gives you a space to thoughtfully and critically explore your response to topic/issue. That is, I am interested in the links, complications, or complexities you identify about the topic/issue. Each thinking piece is worth 5%. Please Note: I will not accept hand-written or emailed responses. I will only accept late reflections with official documentation excusing your absence. I will grade your thinking pieces according to the following criteria: Score of 4-5 Demonstrates high-quality exploration (i.e., insightful and thoughtful); addresses the assigned question, demonstrates that you have done the required reading, reveals engaged thinking; fulfills the length requirement. Score of 3-3.9 Shows evidence of some reflection about the reading and/or issue, but responses are generalized; lacking in depth; fulfills the length requirement. Score of 0-2.9 Shows little or no evidence or reflection about what was read and/or issue or demonstrates that you have read but your response is overly simplistic; too superficial; does not fulfill the length requirement. What constitutes a high-quality “thinking piece”? • Evidence of dialogic thinking—seeing complexities, finding cruxes and puzzles, confronting inadequate explanations—I reward students for looking or probing into the complexity of an issue • Demonstrates critical engagement; makes independent and thoughtful contributions, raises intelligent questions; makes interesting connections • It is generally easy to tell the difference between insightful and superficial. • The key question is not “how well written is this piece?” but “to what extent does this thinking piece reveal engaged thinking about this topic/issue?” • “High-quality” refers to being rewarded for showing the process as much as the product of thought.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
