Question description

** If you do not have the 2011 (8th ed.) of The Longman writer, here are links to

these selections: Garibaldi’s, http://www.city-journal.org/html/16_3_schools_boys.html ,

and Kimmel’s, http://www.dissentmagazine.org/article/?article=700 .

  • How does each author incorporate outside sources into his writing to help show what “They Say” and what “I Say”? Are their positions clear regarding where they stand on the causes leading to declining success of boys in school?
  • Of the two authors, who do you think makes the better case? Why is that argument more convincing? What evidence do they present to support their positions?
  • Consider your own position on gender bias in education. How did you arrive at this position? What evidence do you have to back up your position?

The Assignment:

Write a 1- to 2-page essay that demonstrates how evidence reinforces a position in response to a reading by responding to the following question:

"Where does society's responsibility end, and where does personal responsibility begin for choices made by individuals? Is the educational system failing boys, or are boys failing themselves?"
