1) Explain what scholars mean by “the social construction of gender.” This should be in your own words. Imagine you are explaining it to a family member or friend who is not taking this course.
2) Introduce your case study: tell us something about the topic you have chosen and why it matters. Use at least two scholarly sources to give us this context. You are welcome to pull from the textbook, including Works Cited and Suggested Readings and Videos on pp. 83-88, for sources.
3) Apply the social construction of gender to your topic. Be specific and detailed.
4) Some of the case studies in the book lack strong conclusions. We can do better! Use the conclusion to reiterate your key points and make a lasting impression on the reader.
