I’m studying for my Environmental Science class and need an explanation.

1.Provide a brief summary (paragraph) of the issue(s) covered across the week’s readings. How does the reading help to explain gentrification or its consequences?

2.Identify and define a key theoretical concept developed by one of the authors.

3.Pose a question about the reading. It can be a question of clarification (e.g. what does the author mean by …?), a question concerning a reading’s argument in the broader debate on gentrification (e.g. how does this author’s argument differ from so and so’s argument?), or a question concerning the broader social and political implications of a reading (e.g. how does this concept help us understand inequalities in cities?).
