This essay is a culmination of the readings and activities in chapter 2 of Pasajes or can be used as a general essay topic about the mixture of cultures. It is intended for an AP Spanish class and is formatted to follow the AP exam. The essay is meant to be written as homework but can easily be adapted for a classroom assignment. Please note: Included in the topic for this essay is the information included in my TPT file titled "La Comunidad Hispana: Lila Downs y La Llorona". You are welcome to purchase that file or remove it from the essay. This chapter normally occurs around DÃƒÂa de los Muertos and is a great complimentary exercise for advanced levels.
