does each author incorporate outside sources into his writing to help show
what “They Say” and what “I Say”? Are their positions clear regarding

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?
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?
Write a 1- to 2-page essay that demonstrates how evidence

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?"
