Question Description

 

Take a deep dive into Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality’s website (http://inequality.stanford.edu (Links to an external site.)). In a college-level, critically sound essay, draw on the website’s “Research” section and describe two significant aspects of poverty in the U.S. (You will find this on the main website’s left-hand menu. Hover over “Research” and then select “Research topics”.) Discuss why you chose these aspects of poverty, how they might intersect, and where you see them in society. Refer to the Critical Thinking Activity Rubric available in the Course Content for grading details.

Your assignment should be a paper 2-3 pages long, not including the required title and reference pages. Adhere to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.). Include at least three scholarly sources (you may use the recommended readings) to support your answers. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these sources. Remember to use in-text citations as appropriate and to include your sources in your reference page.
