This assignment provides you an opportunity to explore the components of re-developing suburban life known as ‘retrofitting’ and evaluate how social environments frame human interaction.

Watch the video, Retrofitting the Suburbs- https://www.ted.com/talks/ellen_dunham_jones_retrofitting_suburbia??utm_medium=social&source=email&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=ios-share  [Duration 19:23].  As you watch the video, make note of concepts such as:’retrofitting’
suburbanites lifestyles
rising gas prices
cost of housing and transportation
‘commercial strips’
how demographics have changed in the last 30 years for the suburbs
underused parking lots
third places
redevelopment
You will now have knowledge of what it means to retrofit the suburbs.
Now that you have viewed the video lecture, “Retrofitting the Suburbs,” write a journal entry in which you discuss at least four of the terms listed in the video assignment. I would like for you to include in your journal your own observations and experiences of either living in or going to the suburbs. How is life different in the suburbs than inside a major city like Washington, D.C.?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
