1.2 The main idea of the Greene (1978) article is that
teachers need to be fully aware and capable on not
enticing their own discriminatory beliefs on the
children they are teaching.
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.
1.5 The main idea of the Baily(1992) article is that, there
is a large amount of occupational
segregation based on gender in this country
and it is proven by the substantial difference
in wages earned in the real world.
2 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
2.1 The Segal(2013) article shows the
statistics that girls are getting better
grades in college than boys, but scoring
lower on SAT's. This is a factor based on
what school levels they get into in
3 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.
3.1 The articles are similar in ways that they both
agree that women are being shortchanged
when it comes to being paid in the real world.
They both show that even though the women
have better college degrees and GPA than men
and they still get paid less.
3.2 The similarities of all of these articles is they are all written
by Sara Mead. The good thing about comparing these
articles is that they all have the same view point and its easy
to see her views on different intentions.
3.3 In the article “Should we care about
gender Composition at New York’s Elite
Public Schools?” written by Mead(2013)
it shows that women do better in
schools, but men will always receive
more money in higher paid jobs. In the
article “How Schools Shortchange
Girls” written by Wheimere(1992) talks
about how the segregation based on
gender and is proven that there is a big
difference in wages earned in the real
3.4 -Article number one is “The problem with Gender- Based Education” written
by Mead(2008). Article number two is “The Truth about Boys and Girls” written
also by Mead(2006). The final article is “Should we care about gender
Composition at New York’s Elite Public Schools?” written again by Mead(2013).
4 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.
4.1 Mead (2006) said boys are not doing worse overall
in schools; however, Segal(2013) said girls are
getting better grades in college than boys.
4.2 One article said boys are doing well
and not worse than girls, the other one
is saying girls are doing better in college,
making these articles a differentiating
factor when comparing the two.
4.3 In the article “Asian boys beat American Boys at Behavior”
written by Brenneman(2013) he talks about the different
genders and how they are different in school and how their
behaviors are different within races. The way the article
“Sexism in Schools” by Maxine was written is that teachers
need to treat everyone equal and not to find differences
between students of gender or race.
4.4 In the article “The Truth about Boys and Girls” written by Mead(2006) the boys aren’t doing worse overall.
The contradicting factor in the article “Better to be Lucky than Good: The Persistent Gender Gap in
Standardized Testing” written by Segal(2013) he mentions that girls are in fact doing better in college.
4.5 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
4.5.1 We found an article entitled "How to Make Schools Better
for Boys."- Christina Hoff Sommers. (2013). This article
relates to the article "Boys are Struggling"- Whitmire
22.214.171.124 Girls are achieving more in schools
126.96.36.199 Most men are not attending college
188.8.131.52 Men are less desirable without a college degree
184.108.40.206 We found an article called "Academics Anonymous: Sexism is
Driving Women out of Science."-Academics Anonymous. (2014).
This article is highly related to "Sexism in Schools."- Maxine
220.127.116.11.1 In both of these articles girls are sweeping colleges
and achieving a higher level of education. Also both
articles spoke of marriage. Most girls want to find a
husband when they go to college. Men are less
desirable if they do not have a college degree.
18.104.22.168.2 In both of these articles girls are being judged. Women are not being hired into the
science world because they may get pregnant and have to go on maternity leave. It is
also thought that women do not belong in the corporate world.
22.214.171.124.2.1 Women are judged
126.96.36.199.2.2 They are being turned down because they might have a baby
4.5.2 There are articles that show very
different views. The article "How Schools
Shortchange Girls."- No Author. Is
completely different that the article "How
Boys are Struggling."-No Author
188.8.131.52 These articles are different because one defends how boys
are struggling in school and the other defends how girls are
struggling in math and their self esteem is lower.
4.5.3 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?
184.108.40.206 Our first conclusion that we came to is that most of the articles
do not really stick to what they are trying to say. They almost
all contradict themselves. They talk about how boys are
struggling, but then it will talk about how girls are just
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)
220.127.116.11 After reading all of these articles we
believe that both girls and boys
struggle in school. Boys do not learn
like girls do, but girls are also deal
with sexism. Women do not make as
much money as men and they are also being
pushed out of science because they
might have to go on maternity leave.
We believe that schools need to tend
to both the needs of boys and girls to
provide the most fair learning
4.5.4 "The Truth About Boys and
Girls."-Sara Meade and the article
"Boys are Struggling"-No Author are
18.104.22.168 These articles are different because
"The Truth about Boys and Girls"
talks about how girls are just
surpassing boys in school. "Boys are
Struggling" makes excuses why boys
are not doing well in school.
4.6 The way the articles are different is the way they look at teaching and compare kids. The Brenneman article
is all about how Asian boys as equal to American Girls, but American boys and American girls are different.
The Maxine article stricktly teaches teachers how to not be discriminatory.
