Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Please read the instruction carefully and follow them in depth. I will attach the children book to read and do the discussion on. Please identify 5 examples from the source you chose that you feel are representative of the language used throughout your source! This part is very important. If there is any problem, please feel free to reach out to me
Explore a children’s book or an article from a magazine or newspaper. Analyze the characters, the kinds of stories that are told, and how the stories are told. Please identify 5 examples from the source you chose that you feel are representative of the language used throughout your source.
In your post:
Identify, in bold, the source (e.g., Pokey Little Puppy).
Quote and cite the 5 examples from your source in bulleted list format.
Include a reference in APA formatting at the end for the source that you chose.
You do not need to comment! Your peers will be replying to your examples.
This week, you are going to explore the potential presence and impact of gender bias in different types of communications. Read the two press releases under this Module’s Discussion Readings and use them as inspiration for your exploration. If you’d like to delve deeper into either of the topics, I’ve also included the research articles they’re based on under the Discussion Readings in our Course Schedule.
Part 1: Due Friday
Choose your own adventure! Choose one of the two options for activities listed below. For both, keep the following in mind:
Pay attention to gender bias in the language used. Look out for what language is used and how language is used differently for people based on their gender. Things such as who is involved in a story, names used in examples, the types of occupations people have, what traits people have and activities they may engage in, and how people are described in relationship to another (X’s spouse vs. their own name) are just a few ways in which gender bias can appear. For example, phrases such as “male nurse” or “female surgeon” suggest gendered defaults for nurses and surgeons and occupations for people based on their gender.
