In-Class Essay

In-class writing for Friday:

Answer the question as completely as possible. Read the question carefully. Use direct quotes from the books to support your points. Consider a quick outline before you start writing.

According to Class Matters:

  • on the surface, class is less of an issue,
  • while in reality the divisions between classes run deeper than ever.
  • And, this is unlikely to change.

In your own words, explain why there is a difference between our perception of class and the reality and explain why this gap is or is not likely to change. Evidence from "Shadowy Lines" will help here. Finally, give examples "15 Years on the Bottom Rung" that support your argument.
