SOW 5629 Hofstra University Mexican Immigrants Oppression and Discrimination Paper


Question Description

I don’t understand this Social Science question and need help to study.

For the third assignment, each student is required to lead the class discussion on the topic based on the research-based presentation for approximately 30 – 40 minutes. The presentation must be approved by the instructor. You are required to summarize the ideas during the presentation and be prepared to answer questions. An electronic copy of the presentation should be provided at the time of the presentation to the instructor. Please see pages 22 and 23 of the course syllabus for detailed guidelines to follow in completing this assignment. The individual or group during the presentation should raise questions for class discussion and utilize (if you wish) instructional methods (e.g. interviews, YouTube videos, skits, etc.,) to support your conclusions demonstrate points made that will enhance/facilitate class learning.

DO NOT READ DIRECTLY FROM THE POWER POINT RESEARCH BASED PRESENTATION. You should be able to discuss from notes (i.e., note cards) the points that you wish to make. Please conduct a technology check before presentation.


The third assignment requires students to conduct a research-based presentation on a specific population that has experienced a history of discrimination and oppression in this country. Students must critically describe and analyze the manifestations of this oppression on the selected population. The analysis must clearly point out (1) the types and various faces of oppression, discrimination, and social and economic inequality; (2) the group that is the target of this discrimination and oppression; (3) the group(s) that perpetrate and perpetuate the various forms of discrimination and oppression, and (4) how the members of the oppressed group attempts to survive and thrive under such discriminatory conditions. This requires that students specifically answer the following questions: (a) What societal attitudes and values have contributed to the differential treatment of this group? (b) What are the origins and historical development of discrimination and oppression aimed at this group? (c) What effect has this discrimination and oppression had on members of this group in terms of their social, economic, political, psychological, and physical well-being? and (d) What viable strategies or techniques of intervention can social workers, including social work organizations employ to reduce or eliminate discrimination and oppression against this group? You need to clearly identify and describe these strategies or techniques that you would use as an intervention with this group/population.

NOTE: Please make an appointment with the instructor to discuss the topic of your presentation. The presentation must be typed, double-spaced and without spelling or grammatical errors. Please avail yourself of the FAMU Writing Center for assistance with the drafts of your presentation if you need assistance in enhancing your writing skills. It is recommended that you review and edit your work and subscribe to GRAMMARLY. Your writing must be well- referenced with at least ten (10) references from theoretical and/or empirical literature in the social and behavior sciences (social work, psychology, counseling, anthropology, sociology, economic, etc.) or other related fields. The presentation must contain citations and references that adhere to standards contained in the American Psychological Association (APA) Publication Manual (6th Ed.). NOTE: You will lose five points per day for each day that the class meets and presentation is late.

The oppressed group: Mexican immigrants families and the people who oppress them are: “Anti-Immigrant groups”

I need you to write about 10 pages and I will do the presentations

, and during you search if you find any data that may help me to do the presentation for example ( videos , pictures .. etc. ) put them in different file .. Thank you

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.


Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.

Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.

One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.

I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.

In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.

Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).

Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).

Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.

I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.

As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.

It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.

LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.

Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.

Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?

Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.

Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.

If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.

I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.

As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.


Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:

Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.

Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
