https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/poor-kids/ (The video) This assignment asks you to (1) use your sociological imagination to analyze childhood poverty in the United States. Watch the film Poor Kids, a Frontline documentary released in 2012 and updated in 2017 on PBS. This film shows what poverty is like from the perspective of American children. Writing Prompt: Use Poor Kids and course materials –exclusively– to answer the questions below. The purpose of this paper is to review and process course information; as such there is no need to use external sources. 1. Provide evidence that childhood poverty is a public issue in the United States. 2. Describe the personal troubles associated with child poverty in the United States. 3. What macro-level social forces (social structures) contribute to and/or cause child poverty in the United States. 4. Lastly, use functionalism or conflict theory to explain the persistence of childhood poverty in the United States. Hint: use specific ideas from the theory to support your answer. Writing Guidelines: Essays should be 500-750 words in length. Work to keep your responses in this range; I’m looking for quality over quantity. This length requirement is to give you a sense of the minimum level of detail expected in your writing. Papers should demonstrate that you understand the information well enough to explain your ideas in your own words, can draw from course content to support your ideas, and provide original examples where appropriate. Plan to use course sources, exclusively, to complete this assignment and to cite your sources/attach a works cited page using the MLA or APA format. Specifically, you will be graded on: 1. The quality of your answer content: Did you demonstrate critical thinking in your response? Did you integrate specific facts and ideas from the assigned readings, videos, and activities into your writing? Did you use sociological concepts in a meaningful way? 2. The clarity with which you present your ideas: Did you carefully proofread your work? Are your ideas readily understandable to the reader? 3. The accuracy of your citing and works cited page: Did you use in-text citations? Is your paraphrasing comprehensive? Did you attach a works cited page? Did you use course sources exclusively?
