INTRODUCTION: The purpose of the final exam is to allow you to not only obtain information and knowledge about Chicana/o legal history, but also transition you into thinking about what you do with this knowledge. You will write a (8-10 pages double-spaced) persuasive/argumentative essay. A persuasive/argumentative essay uses reason to show that one idea is more legitimate than another idea. It attempts to persuade a reader to adopt a certain point of view or to take a particular action. This type of essay must present evidence, facts, empirical data, statistics, theories, or examples, in order to defend one’s claims. You are required to use data you have gathered from your readings over the course of the semester. Outside research is welcomed, but you will be graded on how well you summarize, integrate, and utilize information from the required readings from this course.
ESSAY QUESTION: The Supreme Court is deciding a case to eliminate affirmative action in the U.S. The reason for the elimination is that there is no longer a need for race-based programs that seek to remedy inequalities throughout the U.S. Based on the readings you have had in this course, your role is to explain 1) the struggle for rights by the Chicana/o people, 2) the history of the Chicano Movement, 3) the politics of law and trials, and how these elements combine to reveal the importance of keeping Affirmative action in the U.S. You will be graded on your ability to connect the required readings from class to your argument. Please provide concrete examples from the readings to defend your claims.
