Myth of the Culture of Poverty

Write a paper (double-spaced, with citation and references) giving your opinion on the article and discussing how it fits what you learned in this week’s chapters and so far in the course. You are required to use a minimum of 3 terms/concepts from the class (from any of the chapters we have covered). Terms need to be in bold and need to be meaningfully applied – explain what the term means, how you are relating it, give an example, etc. You are required to use at least one quote from the article (remember citation) and be sure to explain it/fit it into your paper. You may write in first person and use personal examples if you choose. There is no required length, but the paper should be 3-5 pages (double-spaced).
