American History I

Response sheet 18, for class, Thursday

NOTE:  Because you have papers due today, we shall do the following questions during class, rather than beforehand.

1.  According to the nativist perspective, what supposed traits of immigrants were thought to be un-American?  What, on the other hand, was supposedly “American”?

2.  Did Whitney imagine it could ever be possible for an immigrant to become an “American”?  Why or why not?
