ReMec<on: I had more adversity discovering quotes/informa<on for the aspects I ini<ally predicted. I
established it apparent to iden<fy further components aFer reading the ar<cles. Clearly from the table
shown above, the inMuences I chose before reading include race, gender, educa<on, appearance, and
physical/mental ability. The two factors I leF blank were educa<on and appearance. These two
subcategories were hard to Dnd quotes or evidence to back up. Experiences, socio-economic status, and
race were the top three I found ease in Dnding quotes for but leF it at one example per factor. The basis
of Jones’ case revolved the most around these three ingredients, hence why I had more ease Dnding
informa<on regarding those aspects.
