Topic 1:

For this assignment I would like you to to visit the link within the class “People Like Us” which are provided below and provide an response thread in the weekly forum on the attitudes and perceptions of the individuals that are interviewed and portrayed within the clips.

You can use the main video or utilize any of the “People Like Us” series. You may use your text and/or notes to help you describe the individuals and you will need to use concepts from the text/notes to better explain the clips.

If this does not work then go to YouTube and search “People Like Us”. The first clip of the series should be the starting point. You should visit at least 2 other clips to provide various perspectives. You will need to identify the clips by the name given to them by PBS.

You will need to provide an analysis of the videos using terms and concepts from the text/notes.

Topic 2:

For this assignment I would like you to discuss the topic of the Feminization of Poverty. What does it mean? Why is it important to study and understand? How does race and ethnicity fit into the argument or does it all? Just a brief discussion on the topic. I have included a link to a specific story, Tammy’s Story, as part of the People Like Us Series. There is also an update to the linked clip as well.
