Please write a response to this section of the class. Focus on things you’ve learned or didn’t know. Since this is our attempt to go beyond simply talking about “Black and White” race issues, what conversations about LatinX identity are important to have and what things do we need to think about moving forward in the United States?

•Identify your topic I will be researching the Mexican American culture of Texas

•Identify your topic
I will be researching the Mexican American culture of Texas with emphasis on the San Antonio region. I will be exploring all aspects of the culture and how it relates to the success and or failure of those in the culture.
•Explain why your topic is of interest and significance to you and to the field
I am originally from San Antonio, Texas. Growing up in SA there was a lot that I saw and experience that has shaped me into the person I am today. Joining the military, I was afforded the opportunity to look back at my culture through objective lenses since I wasn’t a part of the culture anymore. I am from a very poor family and growing up life wasn’t always easy. This topic will give me the opportunity to explore the why behind the successes and failures that a lot of Mexican Americans see now and days.
•Identify specific questions you wish to answer (modernization, social change, urbanization, race relations, and cross-cultural communication)
1. What role does religion play in the issues of race relations? Does it have an impact on success?
2. What opportunities do the schools systems give to the youth and when do they introduce them?
3. How prevalent are single parent homes and what does it do for the success of the youth.
4. How do social circles affect the outcomes of someone’s life?
5. How does income play a role in all of this?
6. How many Mexican Americans from Texas leave the state and find success?
•Articulate the learning outcomes you want to achieve
I want a better understanding of the culture so I can find the flaws and fix them where I can. I know this is a very touchy subject from some people, but I believe that if we never look at ourselves then how can we know we are wrong. There is a lot that can be learned and appreciated from the Mexican American culture. With that being said, there is a lot that can be revised that could lead to a better outcome in life.
Length: Approximately 18-25 pages (maps, graphs, and other supporting graphics will not be included in the overall page count).
Format:
Times New Roman 12 point font
Double spaced
Suggested that it is organized like a white paper, but that may be modified to fit your particular paper
Must contain citations where needed within the body of the paper
Must include a References page that lists at least seven resources or interviewees with name, address and phone number
APA format
From the beginning of your time at Norwich, you have been using the Rubric for Written Assignments as a guide to quality work and an instrument to assess your work. This rubric is relevant to your field study research paper. Your field study work will be assessed on the following:
Conceptual understanding and issue identification
Critical and effective use of information and resources
Organization and presentation of ideas

I will include the instructions in the files. PLEASE follow the instructions very carefully as the last writer did not. I know the example in the instructions talks about the EU but my section is on Africa, specifically Kenya.
The question you will be writing about is:
Is Kenya successfully reducing poaching?
My professor gave me these notes on my essay proposal:
1) you need to talk about a country, not the region as a whole
2) your subheadings need to address both sides of the question

Think of this as your “read receipt” for the assigned material.
This activity will provide you with the opportunity to practice generating a useful academic resource that demonstrates your engagement with scholarly research on race – the annotated bibliography. This tool is useful for articulating your understanding of secondary sources, highlighting key ideas, and evaluating the resource in a concise and coherent way. Annotated bibliographies are useful tools that support other modes of production such as research articles, policy reports, museum exhibits, media production, speeches and presentations, social movements and activism, as well as the arts and humanities.
Please create an annotated bibliography for the following readings:
These readings have been previously assigned and are located in the modules.

Parts of an Annotated Bibliography (taken from Purdue OWL Links to an external site.)
Your annotated bibliography should include four elements: the citation, a summary, an assessment, and a personal reflection. Click the link above (Purdue) for more information about annotated bibliographies.
Citation: A list of the elements that reference a work (book, article, etc.), that may include the title of the work, the author/editor, publisher, date published, volume, issue, and, if from the internet or a database, the url or doi Links to an external site..
Summary: Some annotations merely summarize the source. What are the main arguments? What is the point of this book or article? What topics are covered? If someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say? The length of your annotations will determine how detailed your summary is.
Assessment: After summarizing a source, briefly evaluate it. Is it a useful source for understanding race, ethnicity, racism, immigration etc.? Explain.
Reflection: Once you’ve summarized and assessed a source, you need to ask how it fits into your thinking. How does it help you shape your thinking about race, place, and identity? Has it changed how you think about these topics? Explain. Any other thoughts?
Expectations
Each annotation should be around 300 words, 12 point font in one document. Please list them in alphabetical order as I’ve arranged them above. You can use APA, MLA, or Chicago styles of format. You can either enter it directly in the text box or upload a document in either doc/docx or pdf formats only.
Here are some samples of what an annotated bibliography entry should look like from the Online Writing Lab at Purdue University Links to an external site..

This paper is for a global studies on gender and sexuality class and is focused

This paper is for a global studies on gender and sexuality class and is focused on finding a common theme among three readings I’ve included. The focus should be around gender/sexuality and how it exists in economic/social/culture spheres among the three readings. I’ve attached the professor’s instructions along with the readings – they’re pretty dense but it just needs to focus on a global framework that is structured around sexuality/gender. It’s an argumentative essay that focuses on the impact of the common theme and why it’s significant across all three readings. It’s important not to just summarize the work but to focus on your own argument and how the readings relate to each other. The only sources that should be referenced are the ones I’ve included below, you need to do chicago style footnotes when paraphrasing or quoting the authors and include a bibliography at the end
