(https://www.spokesman.com/stories/2012/sep/23/solving-a-health-gap/,) the pdf file of this
Neighbor matters article is also located in module 8 (but maybe it is hard to read because it is
made from hard copy). Think deeply about following questions, choose two out of three in
the following to reply, in addition, try to integrate the contents in”Neighborhood
matters” article in the reply of two questions you choose to reply, —-this means to use
Neighborhood matters content to support your view.
1. What does the author try to say in this paragraph? —-in Pg. 9, left hand section in
the 4th paragraph, the sixth line it says: “People are now more likely to see psycho-social
well being as dependent on what can be done at the individual level, using cognitive
behavioral therapy—one person at a time—or on providing support in early childhood, or on
the reassertion of religious or family values. Every problem is seen as needing its own
solution—-unrelated to others. People are encouraged to exercise, not to have unprotected
sex, to say no to drugs, to try to relax, to sort out their work-life balance, and to give their
children ‘quality’ time. The only thing that many of these policies do have in common is that
they often seem to be based on the belief that the poor need to be taught to be more sensible.
The glaringly obvious fact that these problems have common roots in inequality and relative
deprivation disappears from view. ”
2. What is your spontaneous response to view and solve poverty, crime and health issues?
What is this article’s (Greater Equality)perspective to view and solve poverty, crime, health
issues? Try to compare yours and the article’s solution in specific way. Summarize the
differences or similarities that you and the article have.
3. What did you learn in this article? Or has this article challenged your assumptions of the
society’s wealth and income distribution issue, or your assumption of the solution to these
issues? Reflect on your assumptions. If you say there is not much you learn in this article
because you don’t trust these data, then provide your evidence/data , with the source of your
data, date of publication, etc., provide the perspective you read from credible sources that is
opposite to this article i.e. Greater Equality, cite year of publication, where was it published.
If in your reply to two questions from the three listed above, you had shown nothing
about what you learned or getting informed from Neighborhood matters article, your
grade is going to be negatively affected.
