Every human is born into a social and cultural setting that includes family, community, social class, language, and religion, among other factors.
How we respond to these influences can vary and is not necessarily predictable.

What are your own views on social class and poverty? Encourage students to explain their answers. Then they should read the short story "The Gift of the Magi" by O.
