Chavez, The Lost Land

Lonestar's eCollege failed to upload the discussion module. I will have to try again tomorrow. In the meantime, here is the discussion assignment so that you can begin.

Use one of the following questions as a starting place for your discussion paragraph on John Chavez's "The Lost Land." Remember to follow these directions . Be sure to read "What is a paragraph" before you begin.

1. Explain the role of "Aztlan" in the construction of Mexican American identity in the Southwest.
2. What are some of the causes and consequences of the artificial ethnic divisions between early Latin immigrants into the Southwest and later 20th-century. Do you think these divisions persist today? Why or why not?

As always, I encourage you to comment on each other's paragraphs.Remember to be respectful and have fun!
