    Structure:

    In today's reading, Steinbeck remarks that someone should prepare an "erudite essay" describing the impact that the Ford Model T had on American culture. Although students are not expected to go this far, this assignment will ask them to prepare a brief summary on the Model T with regard to its history, success, and a general note on its long-term effects on American culture. Students may perform this research on their own or with a partner.
