I also plan on finding secondary sources in magazines.
The site has become a walk-through memorial for the internment that occurred.
By traveling to Tule Lake, I hope to see first hand what the living quarters were like as well as how desolate the camps were.
I was ultimately shocked that the United States could do such a thing as if it was on its way to removal from United States history.
So, I did a small research paper on the internment my junior year in high school.
Overall, I am really looking forward to learning more about the Japanese-American internment during World War II, and I know that having good sources is the key to success in doing so.
I do not feel it is acceptable to have the chronically mentally ill living in our community parks or on the streets.It was in a National Geographic magazine, and described numerous familiess description, I have found that it is full of photos of the camps.I know I will learn a lot from the pictures alone, because they are not interpreted or warped by any writer, but they show exactly what it was like (a picture is worth a thousand words).Both the COCC Library catalog and the whole library homepage are very helpful to me in leading me to sources.Finally, if possible, I would like to actually travel to Tule Lake, California, which is the site of a former concentration camp during World War II.I have chosen to write about the Japanese-American internment, which occurred in the 1940s, because it interests me.In ninth grade I was in a humanities literature class and we read a work by a woman who was in a concentration camp as a young girl in California.I am currently taking a United States History class with Nancy Zens, and a research paper is required for that class.The only requirement for paper is that its topic is in the era between the Civil War and 1980.I am sure that there are many people who have never heard about the Japanese-Americans B.This topic is appropriate for Writing 123 because it is informative to me and my readers.
