Abstract/Description

There are many external factors that influence an individual’s likelihood of success, including social, economic, and cultural factors. These variables also impact educational experiences, which may lead to higher or lower levels of success over time. Depending on the quality of education and amount received, individuals can advance in social status, remain stagnant, or fall to a lower rank than what they originally held. Throughout the selected reading, Annette Lareau analyzes how parenting styles can influence both short-term educational outcomes and long-term socioeconomic gains. These styles, differing greatly between parents of different socioeconomic statuses, are adequate examples of external factors that impact life outcomes. Our presentation will demonstrate the degree of impact that may result by leading the class in a card game activity, which will introduce random life chances that may either hinder or encourage the upward social mobility of each individual participating.
