Unit V Project Photo Essay For the Unit V Assignment, you will research poverty in the United States on the web and create a photo essay that depicts the struggles that many Americans in the underclass, working class, and lower middle class are facing today. Your photo essay should have a cohesive theme linking the photos in some way in the essay. Theme ideas: For example, you could create your photo essay on a certain area or region (urban or rural). Maybe you want to focus it on lost jobs, a personal story, the recession, immigration, economic impact of globalization, low-paying jobs, slums, kids and poverty, hunger, elderly and poverty, single parents and poverty, health care and poverty, drugs, or other social issues that go along with poverty. These are just a few ideas. You can pick any theme that depicts the economic struggles of Americans. You must provide a minimum of four photos in the photo essay with a 100-word (or more) description below each photo explaining what the photo represents. The descriptions should educate the reader in some way about the topic. Each picture must come from a different webpage, article, or source; in other words, do not find an article or photo essay online and then copy all four pictures from that one source for your project. The photos can be your own photos, photos you found online, or a combination of both. Please make sure to cite where the photos came from.

At the end of your photo essay write a paragraph (at least 150 words) discussing the following: Discuss how social class as a social structure influences the opportunities (life chances) for the individual or individuals in your photo essay. Discuss what you learned from the photo essay assignment. Note: Please make sure to use terms and/or concepts from the textbook in your photo essay explanations or concluding paragraph.

Follow the assignment directions of providing four photos with a 100-word description for each photo and a 150-word conclusion discussing what you have learned and how social class affects life chances. 2. Use sociological terms and concepts from the textbook reading in your photo description or concluding paragraph to demonstrate you understand and can apply the concepts. 3. Cite the sources for the photos, the textbook, and any other content used in the photo essay.
