Pretend you are a European immigrant in the early 1800s. You have recently arrived in the United States and are about to write your first letter to a friend back home. Your letter should be two or three paragraphs long. It should include at least four of the following: oReasons for leaving Europe oReasons for going to the United States oBrief description of your trip oDescription of your living conditions oSocial conditions you have encountered oJob prospects for your family
Alright so pretend you're an immigrant from... Ireland. Okay, write to your mother, and describe the trip there first. Boats aren't the best when it comes to traveling, so do a little complaining. Next paragraph, you left home because there are a lot more opportunities in America. The Irish were facing poverty... Google is your best friend when it comes to history.
