Read the article “A War Against Boys?” by Michael Kimmel on pages 447-452 in your textbook. When you’re done:
- Write a 5-7 sentence summary of the entire article. Make sure to include the author’s thesis and his main points. Include an APA style in-text citation at the end of your summary. (8 points)
- Write a short paraphrase of paragraph 11 on page 449 (the one that begins “Gender stereotyping hurts both boys and girls”). In a paraphrase, you closely rewrite a short passage in your own words. The paraphrase should be shorter than the original passage, but in this case, should still be roughly 3-4 sentences long. Include an APA style in-text citation at the end of your summary. (6 points)
- Choose a sentence from the article, and quote it. Somehow attach the quote to your own writing, even if it just means including a signal phrase like, “According to Kimmel,” before the quotation. Make sure to include an APA style in-text citation that includes a page number. (6 points)
