The articles presented this week are delving into some of the (many) issues of inequity and inequality across the American landscape that might lead to a lack of access to social mobility and opportunity. Do you agree or disagree with their claims? What do you think about the evidence they present to you? Can anyone rise up in America, if only they work hard? (Think about the rationale for your answers here and where this rationale is coming from).4.

The journal article critique will be at the end of the semester and should reflect a growth in how you approach studies, the accuracy of the results, and potential influences of bias. The article must be relevant to this course, meaning it must have a study design covered during the semester (including: cross-section, cohort, case-control, or clinical trial). Literature reviews and meta-analysis are not allowed and if used will result in a zero on the assignment. If you do not see a design mentioned and it seems to be just reviewing what other people have done, that is a literature review. If it looks like there are multiple studies described, that is a meta-analysis. If you are unsure the study design is appropriate, you may email the article to the instructor for confirmation of eligibility.The article must have been published since 2010.The study must be done on U.S. populations (no foreign studies). The assignment must have the following sections.
