Castañeda v. Pickard case.
Consider the Castañeda v. Pickard case. How did it further define the previous policies affecting English learners? With more than half of Willacy county’s population being Mexican American, do you think the Raymondville Independent School District was discriminating against the Mexican-American population by not hiring Mexican-American teachers? Do you think schools should give teachers, specifically in this case Mexican-American teachers, an incentive (higher wage, job security etc.) to teach in this school district to best educate this population of students?

Provide a working title (if provisional) for your paper.
In an introductory paragraph, state your essay topic and tentative thesis. Include some of the major questions you will be asking in your work, and identify sources that you will use in your research and why – that is, how has it inspired or challenged or otherwise moved you to take it up this topic?
Five of your sources must be from “scholarly sources” [for example, book chapter(s), article(s) from an academic journal; the sixth can be from a source of your choice (Internet/blog, zine, etc)]. Each annotation should be about 200 words in length.
The function of the annotations is to provide some information on source content – but also, more importantly, on its relevance to your thesis or line of argumentation. In short, identify what the source is about and how it is useful to you for your paper. For each, be sure to:
summarize the author’s or authors’ main ideas. This requires that you read the source thoroughly yourself and write a summary of the relevant arguments in your own words – do not merely reproduce the abstract or book jacket blurb of the text.
critique the source – that is, assess its strengths and weaknesses, and the implications of the arguments. Give support/examples for your assessments (what, in the text, allows you to make these judgments?).
explain how this source relates to your topic – in particular, how and why you plan to take it up in your paper.
For “b”, some of the things you may wish to consider could include assessment of: the currency, accuracy, location or position of the research or researcher; strength/diversity/breadth of evidence; clarity, organization, accessibility of the arguments; “authority” of the source (this may mean you have to do some internet searching on the author(s) and/or the journal, book, publisher or site in which the information appears. Most importantly, you’ll likely want to focus on the implications of the arguments put forward in the source.
Annotated Bibliography guidance:
The annotations for the six articles included:
Introduction of each article
Discussion of each article- critique the source – that is, assess its strengths and weaknesses, and the implications of the arguments. Give support/examples for your assessments (what, in the text, allows. you to make these judgments?).
Summary of each article summarize the author’s or authors’ main ideas. This requires that you read the source thoroughly yourself and write a summary of the relevant arguments in your own words –do not merely reproduce the abstract or book jacket blurb of the text.
Article Selection: Relevance
The relevance of the articles to the chosen research is evident in the annotations.
Explain how this source relates to the course issues and your topic — in particular, how and why you plan to take it up in your paper.
