CSA#5
Hey Folks, I decided that there will not be an at-home writing assignment this week for CSA #5. However, please read Chapter 6: Inequality: Men and Masculinities and come to class ready to participate and complete an in-class CSA, which will count as CSA #5. Have a nice week!

CSA#6
For this assignment, use the chapter 7 study guide found below. For each concept on the study guide, define it in your own words and create your own example or explanation. You should use the book and any other helpful sources, but do not simply re-write the book's definition and example; do your best to learn the material and articulate and exemplify it in your own words. Be prepared to discuss in class.

CSA#7
#1-Type a paragraph discussing what you are thinking about doing for your final paper/project. This can be a rough idea; or you may even type a list of possible ideas/topics etc.
#2-Then, I want you to begin doing research on one of your ideas by finding one scholarly source that would be something you can use for your research. Print out just the first page of this article or source and type a paragraph describing how you might use this research in your final project. (Keep it simple. The idea here is to get you started thinking, brainstorming, and researching for your final paper/project. Refer to the Final Project Prompt above if you have not yet looked at the instructions for the final project.)
#3. Lastly, in reference to chapter 8 material, provide one basic example of how each of these institutions is "gendered" when it comes to norms, values, or policies:
-Sports
-Family
-Politics
-Media
-Military
-Health Care
-Criminal Justice
-Education

CSA#8
For this assignment, use the study guide below for chapters 9, 11, and 12. Choose 5 concepts/terms from each chapter and define each in your own words and create your own example or explanation. You should use the book and any other helpful sources, but do not simply re-write the book's definition and example; do your best to learn the material and articulate and exemplify it in your own words. Be prepared to discuss in class.

CSA#9 and 10
Will be completed in class
