    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches us of the rich history of the Chicano/a and the hardships they went through all of their life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would be when we learned about the Chicano Generation from the 1960s to the 1980s because the professor taught us how much of an impact that generation had on our generation and future generations because they broke down a social barrier that held Latino/as back academically and socially and thanks to that generation we continue to be successful. I learned that life of an immigrant, Mexican-American, and Chicano was a difficult life to live due to all the discrimination they faced everywhere they went and because of their social status they would be given unwanted field labor jobs that the Anglos would not want to do,

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to attend all the lectures and read all of the assigned books, but also try and complete all of the offered extra-credit, if any is offered.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Chicano Studies isn't emphasized in high school and those with Chicano background don't know their history and this class is the most engaging lecture I had and it benefits everyone to get a sense of how the United States of America came to be and how diverse it really is.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was meeting Frances Esquibel from Migrant Daughter and hearing her experiences of getting into Berkeley, and also being able to meet Francisco Jimenez who wrote the The Circuit. Their stories made me feel more motivated to pursue my college education and be able to finish what I've started, but also remind me that everyone has different life experiences and no one should be judged by where they come from but acknowledged and respected.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the readings because they're very insightful and they all show a part of history that isn't talked about as well as be open to other people's backgrounds. Remember dates and famous historical figures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an eye opening course that allows people to recognize not only what circumstances Chicanos and chicanas face, but also what other races and ethnicities are facing in society.

    Course highlights:

    The professor was very involved and passionate about the course. He encouraged activism and awareness. He focused on how this class impacts one self as individual as opposed to just studying for the exam.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to involve yourself in the material. The more you can try to relate to the material and empathize with the people being talked about, the more you will grasp.
