For this assignment you will first carefully complete the readings for this week, as detailed in Readings, Week 6: Sex, Gender, Family.
Then, write a statement that addresses the following three points (total 2 double spaced pages, 500-600 words), spending at least two paragraphs on each point. It is not necessary to use separate headings, but it is helpful.
- Share an observation from the social and cultural world around you that you believe you can better understand using the concepts from the class reading. This can be, say, a personal experience or a news story you have heard. Describe it. (2 points)
- Apply what you have learned from the reading to interpret your observation. Present the concepts or theories from the text you are using and outline them in your own words. Then explain in detail how you believe they relate to your observation. Tie your response to specific points in the text. (3 points)
- Offer at least two questions for discussion. Outline aspects of your explanation you did not think fit the observation very well, we’re unsure about or would like to know more about. Pose any questions about the reading, in general, you would like to discuss with your classmates. (2 points)
Additional 3 points are given for spelling, grammar, and composition
