This is my Asian American Study Class’s homework. Please write the timeline using own words and list date, what happens about Asian American, and using one or two sentence to describe.


Format must like sample paper!!! Follow all requirements!!


In this assignment you will make a personal timeline of Asian/American History. This personal timeline will include significant events that have happened in your life – such as your birth, graduations, travel, and birth of other relatives, movement, so on and so forth. You will conduct research in order to list significant events in Asian/American history that have occurred simultaneous to those events in your life.

As an example, some of you were first year students at Miami University in August 2015. In August and September 2015, the U.S. stock market experienced record lows and the blame was placed on the “Chinese economy.”

Although for some of you, these events do not seem related, this exercise is intended to help you understand the discourses that surround you which implicate you in relations between the United States and Asia. For some of you, this exercise will hit much closer to home because you may identify as Asian or Asian American and have familial, social, political, and historical ties to Asian nations.

I expect 20-25 personal entries and 20-25 concurrent events in Asian/America throughout your lifetime.

The final version of this assignment is due Friday, April 29. We will have class time designated for beginning and continuously working on this assignment throughout the semester. I highly recommend that you do not wait until late April to seriously work on this assignment.

Format: .This assignment should be completed on a Word of Google document. However, you are welcome to get creative with your timeline, presenting it through a web-based media such as website, Prezi, or video. Please discuss with me if you would like to pursue a more creative option.  A works cited page is required – this should include any historical resources, news, and websites you consult in the making of your timeline.
