Essay in which you help challenge society’s limiting gender narrativesReflecting on the seven gender-related videos for Module 2, write a wellorganized
and well-supported essay in which you help challenge society’s
limiting gender narratives.
A well-organized essay has a beginning, middle, and an end. The
beginning, or introduction, should include an opening sentence to grab
your reader’s attention. Follow the opening sentence with a brief
background on the topic or situation. In this case, it would be an
explanation of gender roles, stereotypes, myths, and/or controls in society
today. The last sentence of the introduction is the thesis statement. The
thesis states the main point of the essay, which in this case, would be a
statement affirming what needs to be done to limit gender narratives in
society today.
A well-supported essay includes supporting points, details, and examples.
For this essay, you must decide the best way to organize the body of the
paper. Will you have a paragraph for each change? Will you divide the
body of your paper into three or more paragraphs, one for each point? In
any case, each body paragraph must support (explain) your reasoning
(rationale) using specific details. Each body paragraph must have a
topic sentence that states the main point of the paragraph.
The conclusion typically summarizes the main points of the essay and/or
closes with a lasting impression that connects the reader to their world. In
this case, where is our society headed? Is it too late for change?
Be sure to proofread your essay and edit for proper grammar,
punctuation, diction (word choice), and spelling, as errors in sentence
