8. Collection of autobiographical stories for the Latino/a literature course:
Mi Voz, Mi Vida: Latino College Students Tell Their Life Stories
Questions, before: What sorts of stories are you expecting? Why? How will these stories differ from African-American stories or Asian-American or Anglo-American stories?
Questions, after: Did the stories meet or exceed your expectations? Did you find what you were expecting? If not, why do you think that is? If so, what does that say about the book? What story most touched your heart? Which story can you relate to the most? Why?
I like that this is a collection of the works of college students. So often our students feel marginalized. Yet here, voices of people just like them are in print.
