–“The Underclass Myth” (p.93)
In the discussion below, write at least two paragraph (each paragraph should be about 8-9 sentences on your thoughts of each essay). You can write one paragraph for each essay or you can combine your ideas on both essays in the two paragraphs.
It’s up to you what you write about. What did you like about them? What didn’t you like? What did you agree with or what didn’t you? What parts of the essays were confusing and why? Were there historical references you didn’t understand? What do you think Reed was getting after when we wrote these essays?
Again, you can approach this discussion however you’d like.
