Hi all, The second assignment is a reading response writing on the excerpt of ethnographic research. Then, you will write a 1-2 page response, typed, 12 point font, double-space addressing how you think living in these communities and being a student in these schools and communities would likely affect you – not only what you learn, but also your views on life, as well as your entire future (paragraphs 1-2). In addition, compare and contrast your high school (Tottenville Highschool is the highschool that I went to so please use that one) with a school of your choice in the New York Public School System (or another large city school district near you) to add to the discussion (paragraphs 3-4). You can choose one essay from the following three options: Option1: Excerpt from Jonathan Kozol’s “Savage Inequalities.” Although Savage Inequalities was written in the 1990s, conditions are still extraordinarily poor in East St. Louis, Illinois, and many other city schools as well. Option2: Getting In: How Elite Schools Play the College Game from Privilege: The Making of an Adolescent Elite at St. Paul's School by Shamus Khan. Option3: Concerted Cultivation and Natural Growth & Social Structure and Daily Life from Unequal Childhood by Annette Lareau. ***Please cite your research and include a bibliography and in-text citations where needed. You can find information on inner-city schools and your high school by examining school report cards.
