    Steve SyoenIntellectual essay Men and women, different in so many ways no one could keep count, but I picked one aspect to look at especially.

    The Maturity of a Boy Passion, adolescence, foolishness, and maturity are the first words that come to one's mind to describe James Joyce's short story, "Araby". In it, he writes about a boy who falls deeply in love with his best friend's sister, who through the story, doesn't seem to notice him or care about him. The boy, who has yet to be named, lives in a poor and run-down town. During the story, certain characters contribute to the boy's developing sense of maturity, and eventually, lead him...

The baby is brought home and dressed in clothes that help friends, family and even strangers identify the sex of the child. Baby boys ar...

    An Interpretation of "In the Orchard" For any educator that is searching for a poem to arouse the interest of students enlisted in upper level literature classes, the poem "In the Orchard" by Muriel Stuart, written in the early twentieth century, conveys the ageless theme of unrequited love. The poem has all the elements of making students understand how far back the feeling of unrequited love has been around. We can understand these elements better through the rhetorical strategies.

  • View Boys And Girls Why

    It is a bad time to be a boy in America. As the new millennium began, the defining event for American girls was the triumph of the U.S. womens soccer team. For boys, the major event was the mass killing at Columbine High School. It would seem that boys in our society face great difficulties and risks as they grow up. Yet the best-known studies and the academic experts are telling us that it is girls who are suffering from a decline in self-esteem. The experts say that it is girls who need extra ...
  • Three Boys And A Girl

    The Future is here The idea of being able to choose the gender of a child has not always been around. This controversy did not come about until recently because now we have the technology to perform this act of sex determination. Some say that we should be able to choose the gender of our children. However, other people think that we shouldn t be able to because they say that it is experimenting with nature. Also, that it is unnatural. I used to think the way of the second viewpoint, but not any...
  • Young Girls Of The Importance Of Math
    852 words
    As a woman, mother, and, future teacher, I am worried about the future of young girls. Female students consistently score lower then boys on standardized tests and take fewer advanced math courses. Some schools have implemented single-sex classrooms to ensure that girls receive the attention and modified instruction that they sometimes need. Others have chosen to modify already existing programs. Still others, have done nothing. This problem has become a source of controversy and frustration. As...
  • Boys And Girls
    935 words
    Statistically, in recent years girls have out-graded boys in most examinations. Girls have been consistently beating boys at GCSE, A-Level and, now even degree level. This is often put down to girls' having longer concentration spans than boys. I agree that this may indeed contribute to girls out-achieving boys. I think this because, obviously, the longer someone concentrates, the more they are likely to learn. This would suggest, to me, that for girls, it would be better to have single sex scho...

  • Boys And Girls

    Gender inequality was once an issue in high school classrooms. However it does not seem to be a problem today. There have been studies that show boys get more attention, but from personal experience I have not noticed that. In an attempt to end this discrimination Congress passed Title IX in 1972. This was a set of amendments that stated "no person in the US shall, on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any progra...

That's one of the first things that I noticed. Today there are two main dividers between males and females besides sex that I have noticed. Toys are the...

Gender discrimination has evolved to a more subtle way of widening gender gap as it has become "the self esteem gender gap" especially in Education as it is a major reason in girls' and boys' difference in choice of career paths.
