This is Question – Answer paper. Each question requires 2-page answer. Answers should be written by use and cite material from class (have to use reading materials and lecture slides to answer) and present it in a well-organized, logical manner. Writing skills should be at least master degree level. I need someone who is really experty and good at “Sociology: Residential Segration and Immigrations.” Don’t use direct quatation. Don’t copy sentences from readings and powerpoint slides. Please paraphrase them all to answer questions. I strongy recommend to use 70% from readings and 30% from PPT slides to answer questions. 11 Fonts, Times, and 1-inch margin all.

Very Important

#1. Many of the largest U.S. Cities are characterized by high levels of racial residential
segregation, especially between African Americans and whites. Briefly summarize recent
trends in the levels of racial/ethnic residential segregation in metropolitan areas. What
are the competing explanations to account for the historically high level of residential
segregation between African Americans and whites in the U.S.? Use at least two
examples from the readings to illustrate these explanations.

#2. Describe three theories of international migration. For each theory use an example from
the film ?Farmingville? to illustrate the process described by the theory. In addition, for
each theory you describe, suggest one policy intervention governments can make to affect
the flow of migrants given the propositions of the theory. (cover
three theories in lecture but I strongly recommend reading this as it thoroughly
covers important information, which will appear on the exam”)
