After reading the chapter by Louise Ano Nuevo Kerr, write a reflective paragraph (250 words) answering the following questions:
1. Although this chapter was written in the late 1990s, her arguments about Mexican American history still hold true. Analyze the author’s argument about this field and explain it in your own words.
2. Why do you think this field has received and still receives such little attention or exposure, i.e., what are the issues affecting the growth of this field of research, teaching and study?
3. Why do you think Mexican American history is not included in K-12 social studies or history curriculum?
