Poverty's One Root Cause – Teacher's Guide
The 22 chapters of “Poverty's One Root Cause” (Edward Slater, 2015) make a coordinated claim that there is one and only one root cause of poverty in America. This compelling claim is antithetical to some modern philosophical thought, though, and a search for opposing points of view can uncover and amplify the student's process for the creation of personal opinions. Opinions and advocacies are the basis for progress in the adaptation of Western culture to inevitable changes, making this subject matter relevant in a liberal arts curriculum.
A critical reading of the text “Poverty's One Root Cause”, and use of classroom guidance in (1) Discussion leadership, (2) Debate moderation, and (3) Essay critique are essential. Student evaluation can effectively be based on four metrics:
  • Thoroughness of preparation
  • Classroom participation
  • Clarity of thought in student's assigned essays
  • Effective defense of the student's personal opinions
