For this assignment, you are expected to write a 4-5 pages essay answering the following prompt. Essays should be double-spaced, in 12pt. Times New Roman font.
Prompt: How did Asian American children challenge discrimination in their everyday lives, and how effective was their resistance?
Use Lee, Okubo, and Le to provide evidence to support your answer. You may also use the Major Problems book, but you must cite at least two of the three (Quiet Odyssey, Citizen 13660, or The Gangster We Are all Looking For) as your primary evidence in order to pass this assignment. Citations are to be in-text, with the following format: Sentence or ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œquotationÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â (Author, page).
Citations must be completely correct, and you may only use sources from this course in your essay. You do not need to include a works cited page.
You must include a compelling thesis statement that fully answers the question. You need to make an argument in your thesis statement and use evidence from readings to back up your argument. You also need to provide an introductory paragraph that provides historical context and ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œsets the sceneÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â for the reader before giving your thesis. You also need a conclusion to wrap up your essay, Proofread your essay and even get somebody else to take a look at your paper before you turn it in ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ small errors can add up and needlessly lower your grade.
(Have to use at least two, but I think you should use all of them)

Base on my English level, please use simple structure and simple wordings, also more active voice.
