I am needing to find information on identifying the linquistic, political, social economic, religious and familial conventions of four hispancic groups living in america one Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Latinos can anyone help me where to get started on this i have no idea where to go and get started

First of all, "Latinos" refers to all of them; it's treated as a synonym to "hispanic" these days. So here's a slightly revised list for you:

Mexican Americans
Puerto Ricans
Cuban Americans
Salvadoran Americans

Now ... as for searching ...

Learning how to conduct thorough and effective searches for yourself is an important skill, online or offline (in a library!). That's what research is, and I'm sure that's what your teacher expects you to do -- conduct research. You must also be prepared for the fact that not all of it may be online. Or some may be, and some may not.

At this webpage, you can go immediately to the search sites (first three columns across the top) -- or even better you can scroll down until you see the section called HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET. Those are the links to start with. You'll not only learn how to come up with good search terms, but also how to evaluate the webpages you get as results. Some will be good and others will be garbage. You need to know how to tell the difference.

My favorite way to search is to go to Google's advanced search page ( http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en ) and put my search words or phrases into the first or second search box (either "all the words" or "exact phrase"). However, there many other strategies for searching you can use, and the HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET section on the sou.edu webpage will help you best.

I'm posting this message to you in the spirit of this: If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day; if you teach a man to fish, he will eat for his lifetime.

Happy searching!

You must be attending WIU, too!

Apparently there are several of us having the same problem. This class has been really hard. I work full time and I am starting my own business on the side. I have really been struggling with taking two classes why trying to balance the other important things in my life. This is the first class that I have had to write so many papers for. This is really hard. Oh well, my wife tells me that is what college is all about.

I have been struggling for 3 day trying to write this paper. I am frustrated and overwhelmed. My paper is already late.

I have the same problem. Some information seem kind of hard to find and my paper is now 3 days late.

I went to ask and found several things by typing in Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans politcal,...
things of that nature. I agree this has been a hard paper to write and the hardest class i have had so far. Alot of reading and writing,YUCK!
Good luck all.

I feel all of you....1000 words due now....another 1500 due in 2 weeks...I am sooooo burnt out on this class and cant wait for it to be over!!!!!!!

Suck it up. This is weak.

This sucks!!! This Class is really hard. This paper sucks is now one day late...

I normally don't have a problem writing a paper until my teacher asked me to write on four hispanics dealing with their politics and so forth, I must admit this is hard and it is due tonight and I haven't even started!
