Required Assignment #2 due 12/3: You have been divided into five groups. Each of the five groups will watch an assigned program. Follow the directions below:

  1. On your own, each member in Groups 1-5 will watch one of four parts of the documentary Chicano! History of the Mexican American Civil Rights Movement or the assigned video, The Zoot Suit Riiots. Each group member must watch their assigned part of the video prior to coming to class.
  2. On your own and before coming to class, each person must answer the following questions related to their assigned video. These typewritten answers to the questions must be turned in at the end of class and are worth a possible 20 points.

3. When you come to class, Groups 1 and 6 will meet, Groups 2 and 7 will meet, Groups 3 and 8 will meet, Groups 4 and 9 will meet and Groups 5 and 10 will meet. Each large group will take 15 minutes to determine the 3 most important things you learned from the video you watched. Each person must write these down and understand these well enough to teach it to classmates in a smaller group.

4. When you are done in these groups, reconfigure your groups. Now, you must make 8 groups of 5 persons each. Each of the five persons will have seen one of the required videos so that each groups has a person who has seen Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 of Chicano and The Zoot Suit Riots. Each person will take 5 minutes to teach their chapter to their classmates using the three most important points discussed in the previous group.

5. Once everyone has discussed their video, take another 10 minutes to decide what 3-5 themes all the videos had in common in regard to the historical Chicano movement and the Zoot Suit Riots. Elect a spokesperson to be ready to contribute your group's findings to the entire class.

When class is over today, be sure to turn in your required written assignment.
