Please read the whole post.
As we wrestle with the unpleasant, but important to understand Women's Brains by Stephen Jay Gould, work on the Rhetoric and Style questions 1-12 on pages 323-4 of the TLC book as well as the Discussion Question #1. They are due Monday.
As you work with this essay, think about the implications of the ideas in the essay -- both those of Gould and of those he quoted. Are there echoes of those ideas alive and kicking today? How? When? Where? To what extent? ;) Append a brief reflection on those questions at the end of questions 1-12.
Next week we'll look at some more gender themed stuff while also hitting the test prep with another timed write and more multiple choice.
After reading the essay Putting Down the Gun by Rebecca Walker in your textbook (pg 611 of the pdf or 573 of the text), blog the 5 questions after the essay.
Also, don't forget to upload your letter to the Classroom assignment. Don't share it with me. Attach it to the assignment. I don't want to look all over for them. Don't send it yet. We'll do that early next week.
