This article summarizes homeless youth in the public school system. The paper includes
statistics on homelessness in public schools, graduation rates compared to students with
stable housing, and factors that contribute homelessness in children. Federal policies
addressing youth homeless are used to help bring reform to the current system and how
the policies will affect homeless students. The factual evidence this article brings to the
topic of student homelessness can be used to show the audience it is a growing concern
schools should start taking into account. Programs like eco-friendly housing can provide
a cheap and sustainable solution. This source could also be of use for someone looking
for program reform at schools that are focused on helping the homeless student

This article discusses the impact of fancy dorms and meal plans on the rising cost of
college. It shares how colleges want potential students to be impressed with amenities. It
also shares blueprints of old and new dorm buildings and why the additional charges are
justified. The figures included in the article share insight on how room and board costs at
public and private colleges are increasing from 1900 to present time. This figure was
useful in making the point that it is becoming more difficult to afford living on campus.
This data would be useful for anyone looking for statistical data on the cost of living at
colleges or how fancy dorms affect which college students choose to attend.
Bader, Eleanor J. Homeless on Campus The Norton Field Guide to Writing, with Readings. 4th
ed. New York: W.W. Norton, 2016. 710-15. Print
This article retells the stories of students who are struggling with housing during their
time at college. These stories show how difficult it is to balance education and
homelessness even when students know education is there only way out. Bader shares
interviews with teachers and faculties at colleges who have experienced homeless
students first hand and how they helped them through their post-secondary education.
This was helpful in connecting sustainable housing and homelessness because it gives a
reason for having sustainable housing on campus. This article brings a personal
connection between the reader and homeless students. This would be helpful if writing on
education or homelessness at intuitions where you require person accounts or struggles of
a student.

This article shares the experimental of the Sustainable Cool Cubby, which has been
implemented in Australia. This experiment is bringing awareness of sustainability to
children by giving childrens cubby houses sustainable components. This teaches
sustainability to children at an early age. The experiment includes biodiversity, water,
waste, and energy. The article includes dialogs to show the childrens perspectives and
methods on implementation. This article was not useful for my purposes, the article
included a sustainability experiment for children learning. This would be useful for
phycology major looking for experiments on weather teaching sustainability early has
effects on childrens lives or careers. Another possible use for this article could be for the
research for innovative ways on teaching children or the implementation of the Cool
Cubby Project to help teach children about sustainability.
Hamblin, James. "Living Simply in a Dumpster." The Norton Field Guide to Writing, with
Readings. 4th ed. New York: W.W. Norton, 2016. 885-91. Print.
Hamblin writes about Jeff Wilson, the Dean of the University College who left is 2,500
square foot home to living in a 36 square foot dumpster on the Universities property. This
article shares the reasoning behind why Wilson decided to downside so drastically. The
experiment is to show his students that living sustainably and eco-friendly is possible.
The article includes blueprints of the dumpster which includes future renovations and
additions. Wilson shares how the lifestyle change has brought him closer to his college
community and nature by testing what really needs to be included in a home. This article
can be used to show an affordable sustainable housing design that can be used across the
world at other universities to provide housing that cheaper than traditional dormitories.

Night of the Living Homeless. South Park: Season 11, Episode 7, Created by Trey Parker and
Matt Stone, Comedy Central Television Network, 2007.
This episode of south park includes comical comparison of homeless to zombies. A
season from the show includes the main characters taking a bus and playing music to
encourage the homeless to leave the town to California. Essentially saving the town of
South Park. This reference created a good connection between homeless and how not to
deal with it. This would be a good source for anyone looking for a satiric way to handle
the homeless.
