Homework for the Next Class
Read these two short essays, both written by college students:
- Who are you calling underprivileged? by Natasha Rodriguez (2014)
- I came to Duke with an empty wallet by KellyNoel Waldorf (2013)
Notice that both authors have unexpected definitions of what a "typical" college student is. As usual, we will take a short quiz.
