An update on the reader: it’s not quite acceptable. Some of the articles have improved, others haven’t. Today, I’m going to run over fresh copies of the originals. I’m going to see if they can put the good articles in one volume and the others in another, so you could have some articles. My hunch is that they’re trying to scan master copies, thus hurting the quality of the copies. Quiz Due on Friday I want to announce a quiz on Friday. I’ll tell you what it is, and I’ll post it up. The quiz is a way to focus your thinking toward your papers. It’s going to ask you to make use of two of the readers: Fischer & Berger. I want you to talk about several items of knowledge that have come to you by virtue of your family and its social position that have influenced your strategies of attainment.

If you grew up in a different bubble, you may have a different set of beliefs (culture, religion, ideology). The specifics of different belief systems will differ from any one group to another. I want you to ask, “What are a couple uniques that have influenced my strategies of attainment that I have internalized and acquired by virtue of my exposure to the influences of society made possible by my family?” Address two items, two beliefs. I want you to say what body of bigger beliefs they come from. The second thing it asks you to take a look at Fischer’s chapter on the influence of social policies and individual attainment in America along with inequality among groups; I want you to think about three social policies. That chapter is stuffed with discussions of particular social policies (laws, regulations, government programs) that have been designed to ship resources to different groups in the population. I want you to identify three social policies that have affected your achievement
