which began in the 1960s. Discuss in detail the particular issues of
stratification faced by this latest wave of immigrants, integrating our course
materials.
2) A comparison of the impact of the latest wave
(approximately 1960s-now) with the first wave (approximately 1820s-1920s) of
immigrants in terms of types of populations involved, causes for immigrating,
and overall impact on U.S. society, drawing from our course materials.
3) Your own analysis of how you think the negative
consequences of stratification could be improved in society for one particular
disadvantaged group of your choosing. What are the specific actions that could
