  3. Add to the vocabulario section with definitions of your own.Explain how the stories in this book are/are not examples of “Naïve”, “Primitive” or “Outsider” art.
  4. Why does Bodeen focus on women in Latino literature/culture? What is he trying to say/teach to these students and to the reader?
  5. How do the photographs contribute to this book? (This is a crappy question, please only answer it if you can make it interesting).
