Tyrrell, Mark. “How Your Environment Influences You.” How Your Environment Influences You        Uncommon Knowledge. N.p., n.d. Web. 20 Apr. 2017. <http://www.uncommon-  knowledge.co.uk/articles/uncommon-hypnosis/environment-to-influence-people.html>.

Background:

Mark Tyrrell is the author of article “How your environment influences you” and explains that our environment affects us more than one may think. It is the stem of all our behaviors and reactions to things around us. Terrell gives us examples such as language, and how a person can “build up an environment of words” that the other person might begin to respond to.

This source will be useful in my essay because it explains how we are highly susceptible to environmental triggers, which helps support my argument of the demographics of people living in Shaw 30 years ago, to the people living there today. The environment of Shaw 30 years ago wasn’t healthy, it was drug-ridden, poor, and uneducated because the environment was run down. But reconstruction of Shaw brought in new people.

Annotated Bibliography 2:

OAKLEY, D; BURCHFIELD, K. OUT OF THE PROJECTS, STILL IN THE HOOD: THE SPATIAL CONSTRAINTS ON PUBLIC-HOUSING RESIDENTS’ RELOCATION IN CHICAGO. Journal of Urban Affairs. 31, 5, 589-614, Dec. 2009. ISSN: 07352166.

Method:

Deirdre Oakley and Keri Burchfield, authors of article “Out of the Projects, still in the hood”, explain Chicago’s efforts in 1992 to change public housing for the better by relocating the residents living there in order to redevelop the community and create a mixed-income neighborhood. However, only a small portion of the people who were forced out of their homes in public housing will be able to move back into the new and updated public housing. There are also spatial constraints on the relocated individuals because they were mostly moved into poor African-American neighborhoods.

This article will be helpful in my essay because it goes further helps me understand the book we are reading, City of Rhetoric, which talks specifically about the different public housing in Chicago.
