M1D1: Gang Formation

1. Initially, gangs began when an immigrant or excluded group sought protection against harsh living conditions. Do you think that this is the case today? What is a gang, and why is it important to be able to define it?

M1D2: Gang Violence

2. Valdez speaks of gang psychology precluding individual gang members from understanding the consequences of their actions. Do you think that this makes it easier for a gang member to commit acts of violence, as violence is typically committed as a group? Support your answer with reasons and references to your textbook and other academic sources
