Level 2: Sources Before 2010. In the
bubbles below, record the main
idea of each of the five articles
we read for the discussion
posts. Use dates in APA style.
EXAMPLE: The main idea of
the Mead(2008) article is...Blah, blah,
Optional Point #1
EXAMPLE: The main idea of the Greene
(1978) article is ...blah blah
Note the citation here - it is APA style. The author's last name and the date of the article/book. Then at the end, you would have a list of references in APA style that would include the name of the article/book - like what most of you did for your biography project.
Level 2: Sources After 2010. Choose
5 of the 8 new articles I
provided, or search the web
for others. Any combination
is also fine. In the bubbles
below, record the main idea
EXAMPLE: The Adams (2013)
says, blah blah blah....
Level 1: At least three connections go in
bubbles on this level. What have you
found to remain the same throughout
both time periods (before 2010 and after
2010) concerning girls' and boys' ed?
Write these connections in
boxes/bubbles on this level.
Here is where you show evidence of your thinking. Connect the pieces about boys and girls' education that you have found to be the same in sources before 2010 (which we read for the discussions) and in sources you found dated after 2010.
This connects to the readings of gender
based education and in Math and reading
Gaps. Both of these articles talk about and
mention how guys are good at science and
Science teachers favor males in class
This article connects with the
articles on math and reading gaps
and boys are struggling. They
connect because they both talk
about the gaps boys and girls start
with during school. Girls are typically
better better at reading and writting
while boys are better at math and
the problem with gender based education
There is a connection to the
math and reading gaps and the
problem with gender based
education. Both of these articles
talk of how boys struggle with
reading and writting while girls
flurish in these subjects
boys are struggling
This article connects back into all of the
articles because they all stress the
math and reading gaps between boys
and girls and how one gender is better
than the other at certain subjects.
Math and reading gaps
Level 3: What differences in the updated information did you find?
Compare articles dated after 2010 to those dated
before 2010. Record at least three.
EXAMPLE: Mead (2008) said blah blah
blah; however, Adams
(2013) says blah blah blah...
Level 4: Look at sources dated after 2010 that your group
found for this week's discussion posts. On this
level, show at least two likenesses (to the right) and two
differences(to the left) you found as you studied these and
ANY other works we have studied in the course. Cite your
EXAMPLE: We found an article entitled, "Blah Blah" (2014) It highlighted
three points very similarly to Greene (1978) and Bowles (1976)
Point #1 blah blah
#2 blah blah
#3 blah bla
Level 5: What conclusion(s) have you drawn about girls and boys' education
as a result of synthesizing all you have read for this assignment?
Idea 1 blah blah
http://www.hereiswhereifound.com. A notation needs to be on each of your bubbles in this area - support what you believe! For example, you could refer to something in "Savage Inequalities", in which case you would write: (Kozol, 1991)
