3. Use the tools of literary analysis—in respectful evaluations of both traditional and nontraditional genres of working-class literature—during discussions with peers, family members, clients and coworkers.
4. Recognize that literature is produced in a historical, cultural, sociological and political context; use this understanding to recognize that the products of our own labors are also subject to these contextual considerations.
