1. Discussion Question: What is social-structural differentiation and how has the concept and structure of the “metropolis” changed over time?
2. Reading Reflection: Solid ONE-page reflection paper about your thoughts on the reading. This could include a brief summary and your opinion. There are not many guidelines or format (e.g., APA, MLS style) for these weekly reading reflection assignments. But please use 12-point font, Times New Roman, and don’t get ridiculous with the margin settings.
