2. Can you respond this peer's response?

S/he opened up a discussion about a film:



In the film they continually emphasis the point of community. I think that even though the movie is about union workers and their battle against the mining company, the real theme is the community. The pillars of that community is its women, who are more than just mothers and homemakers, they are the backbone of the men and later their salvation. Yet the still the theme continues to come back to the community as a whole. That with out one there can not be the other, and they know that, even if took the men a bit to really see that. Also something that was different was the make up of the men, they where not all Mexican and at first that was what I was expected to see. Yet the film showcases the men are not all the same but all fight for the same equality. That it was not about Mexicans entirely and that there where other voices brings it closer to helping expand on the theme of community. The film showcased this particular community and did a good job in ensuring that any community can do the same if they can see they are all part of one regardless of class and race.

4. (I will upload the reading for this assignment) Primary source documents are dated from the time periods that we cover throughout the course. They are the basic resources used for writing history.

Your assignment is to review the preselected primary source document(s) and answer the question(s) that follow each. Your answers should be between 4-5 sentences per question. The goal of reviewing the document(s) is to give you a chance to better understand how primary source materials are used to craft historical narratives. Also, you will find that primary source documents can be interpreted differently, depending on your own perspective.
