- Sometimes Juana observes Christian customs; sometimes she prays to the ancient gods of her people. Why do you suppose she does both? Which set of beliefs do you think are more a part of her? Why?

About this Document
An eNotes Response Journal is designed to encourage your students to read and write more effectively and with more pleasure. Each Response Journal includes a rich variety of writing prompts: some will take students directly into the text, while others will give students an opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings and to reflect on their own experiences.
A second purpose of the eNotes Response Journal is to facilitate instruction in ways that work for you in the classroom. The organization of the Response Journal makes it easy to use, and the content and construction of the writing prompts are designed to develop students’ knowledge and academic skills.
