One of Latin America’s most famous cities is Rio de Janeiro, especially since it has recently hosted the World Cup (soccer) and the Olympics. Rio exhibits the socioeconomic polarization discussed by our textbook author. Let’s take a closer look…

  1. Go to YouTube and watch:

“2016 Olympics: What Rio doesn’t want the World to see” (8:36 minutes) at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1W_zM7koJy8

“Brazil is Unraveling Before Our Eyes” (2:45 minutes) at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu2rmjDDJ2E

“Will Zika Virus Overshadow the Rio Olympics?” (8:17 minutes) at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jutVdmItY4c

  1. Using these given sources, write a 5-paragraph paper (3 pages maximum; points will be deducted for not following instructions) answering the following questions:

1. What is meant by “socioeconomic polarization” and “socioeconomic disparities”? You will need to do some additional research. (4 points)

2. What is the purpose behind the “wall” shown in the video: “2016 Olympics: What Rio doesn’t want the World to see”? (2 points)

3. What socioeconomic disparities are shown or discussed in the videos? (10 points)

4. What is a “favela”? (2 points)

5. In your opinion, what does the future hold for Rio? Explain your answer. (3 points)

Cite the YouTube videos plus at least one more source. (4 points) Remember that sources need to be cited inside the text of your paper and at the end of your paper. You may use any citation format that you are comfortable with, or you can use the format listed below. To cite a source within your paper, simply place in parenthesis the name of the author or organization and the date published (for example: Maslin, 2009) at the end of the borrowed material. Then at the end of your paper, give the full bibliographic listing of the source, including author, title, publisher, and copy write date. If you are citing a website, simply place in parenthesis the name of the website and the date information was accessed (for example: ww.nationalgeographic.org, 1/20/10) at the end of the borrowed material. Then at the end of your paper, give the full bibliographic listing of the source, including website, author if possible, title of article, copy write date if possible, and date information was accessed.

Grades will be based on the content your work and NOT on your writing ability. However, please use some form of “spell check” and “grammar check”, because this impacts the professionalism of your work (and makes it readable and gradable).

Cite your sources (see assignment instruction sheet for further information).

Label all work by placing in the top right-hand corner: your name, course name (SOC 3), assignment name (Block One Written Assignment), and the date the assignment is being turned in. Please do NOT handwrite your work. Please double-space with a font size of 14 (nothing microscopic, please).
