Essay 2
Lareau argues that cultural capital is reproduced in families in ways that create and perpetuate important differences between children from different classes. Drawing on the required chapters we’ve read for class, analyzes how this occurs. Your essay should define each approach, identify some of its benefits and shortcomings, and then point to the implications for cultural capital. Conclude with 2 paragraphs about your family of origin and analyze succinctly which strategy(ies) your parent(s) pursued with you (and your siblings if you have any) with respect to communication (1 paragraph) and to discipline (one paragraph) with very clear and specific examples for each (2-2.5pages).
