Prepare: Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review the Introductions & Conclusions (Links to an external site.) and Annotated Bibliography (Links to an external site.) web pages, and Evaluating Sources (Links to an external site.) and Annotated Bibliography (Links to an external site.) tutorials.

Reflect: Reflect back on the Week 1 discussion in which you shared with the class the global societal issue that you would like to further address. Explore critical insights that were shared by your peers and/or your instructor on the topic chosen and begin your search for scholarly sources with those insights in mind.

Please follow the prompt throughly….Poverty and income inequalityDiscussion post that leads to this assignment Poverty and inequality are a factor that exists in almost every developed culture around the world. Observing the development scene closely, one tends to notice an interesting shift over the few years. Currently, charity organizations such as the World Bank and Oxfam aim to end poverty and inequality. The argument of growth elasticity expounds that rising levels of inequality weakens the growth effects on the reduction of poverty (Nasir & Mridha, 2017). Research on poverty and inequality is essential to determine the correlation between the two. In order to improve and reduce poverty in America, there is a need to improve on the government policies. Additionally, the government should offer stable jobs that help the economy and those in need.There are two ways of thinking about the issue of inequality. The first option is all about the rich, and the second is about the poor. The second option is what matters. Income inequality in the US has dramatically increased in recent years. Poverty and inequality negatively impact low-income families (Hassan, Bukhari & Arshed, 2020). For instance, adults and children living in poverty experience worse health outcomes, such as increased mortality rates and increased risk of mental health conditions. Poverty also mounts considerable stress on the families, a primary contributing factor for interparental conflict (Hassan, Bukhari & Arshed, 2020). Conflict is a precursor for adverse child outcomes. Similarly, poverty causes housing overcrowding and instability that can affect family relationships.Nasir and Mridha (2017) established that income growth does not reduce poverty at a 1.37 per cent rate for a one per cent growth in income when inequality is constant. These findings established that to alleviate poverty, conditions of reducing the inequality gap have to be factored in.ContentServer.asp.pdf  Download ContentServer.asp.pdf ReferenceHassan, M.

Reflect: Given that you have been in college for awhile, it’s time to reflect on what you have learned through the use of the University of Arizona Global Campus Library in relation to how you learned to acquire new information from a variety of sources.

Write: This week, you will take the Threshold Achievement Test for Information Literacy (TATIL) (Links to an external site.). This test is not graded, and your results are anonymous. The TATIL assesses students’ ability to recall and apply their knowledge and their metacognition about core information literacy dispositions that underly their behaviors. Through this combination of knowledge and dispositional assessment, TATIL offers a unique and valuable measure of the complexities of information literacy. The results of this assessment will guide University of Arizona Global Campus in developing the best possible library resources and research methodologies training.
