Further Description

For your first assignment we expect you to write a five-page (5) content analytical paper. On the first half of your text you can choose any chapter or chapters. Your writing must show a solid understanding of the concepts posed by the author as well as a critical interpretation on your part. It is not a summary of the chapter but rather an intellectual exercise that offers an opportunity to carefully consider the fundamental concepts of Mexican-American history. You are expected to expand on the information presented by the author by doing some basic research on the subject. Include at least two web-based bibliographical references.

Also, you can, if you wish, focus on one aspect of the chapter(s). Not necessarily on every issue presented in each chapter. Make sure you provide a bibliography a end of your paper (this page is in addition to the five pages of content).The following films are required to view. You can, if you wish, write a review on one of the films. We will accept it instead of a paper from a chapter. It, however, requires that you also do additional basic research on the subject (at least two bibliographical references) and a bibliographical note be provided at the end of your review.
