This is a two-part exam. Please label each of the two essays clearly. Please reference the textbook by author and page number when you are summarizing an idea or fact from the text, and use quotation marks (along with the page number) when you are using the exact language of the textbook. Most of the language should be your own.
Write an essay of 3-5 pages in length in which you explain and discuss how income inequality occurs in the U.S., and how it is related to poverty.

Write an essay of approximately 2 pages in length in which you describe and explore 2 of the valuable personal characteristics and/or ethical values in Social Work that you feel would pose a problem for you as a social work practitioner. Keep in mind that no one can live up to all the ethical values all the time, that everyone struggles to live up to them, and that no one holds all the valued characteristics. Keep in mind also that critical self-examination is a necessary tool for a social worker, and this is your chance to start engaging in it!
