There will be 3 essays based on the book Evicted this is the first one. Attached is the ruberic, instructions and book summary. I hope you can gain access to the full book. First Essay due tomorrow. the next essays will be due Tuesday then wednesday. So I will need a well constructed essay that will connect with the other 2 essays that we will also write.
Here are the Questions to be asked:
In each essay (3-4 pages, double-spaced), briefly describe the author’s main point(s) or argument(s) and your response. Please submit to Canvas by 11:59 on day due. (See course outline) This is not a summary; you should critically and thoughtfully answer the following questions:
- What is/are the main point(s)/argument(s) in the particular section of the book?
- What sort of evidence does the author use to make his/her/their point(s)?
- How does the evidence support/not support the main point(s)/argument(s)?
- Application of other course readings to this section of Evicted. Do you see evidence of or lack thereof of the other concepts, theories, approach to housing stability?

During Week 3, you will engage in field work to deepen your understanding of poverty and homelessness. Learning activities will include: reading Evicted: Poverty & Profit in the American City; designing a self-sufficiency budget & simulated grocery shopping on SNAP; and collaborative researching through field-work, social service agencies’ current responses to homelessness and sustainable housing. It is my expectation that site visits are conducted as a group during the time our class would normally meet so as to accommodate and respect your personal schedules.
