Assessment Instructions

Many experts believe that education in the United States is gendered. That is, boys and girls are educated and treated differently throughout their academic careers. For this assessment, write an evaluation of gender and education in the United States. Address the following in your evaluation:

  • Are boys and girls taught gender in our public school systems?
  • Are female and male college students given equal support?
  • What differences are there in how college students evaluate male and female instructors?
  • How can gender bias be reduced or eliminated in the classroom?

Use the Capella library to locate current journal articles pertaining to gender-specific training and education, and refer to at least four of those resources in your evaluation. Note: If you use Internet sources, they must be credible. For example, Wikipedia and YouTube are not credible resources.

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS

  • Written communication: Written communication should be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
  • APA formatting: Resources and in-text citations should be formatted according to APA (6th edition) style and formatting.
  • Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 point, double-spaced. Use Microsoft Word.
  • Number of resources: 4 or more.
  • Length: 3–4 pages.

ASSESSMENT 4 CONTEXT

We enter a gendered society at birth and continue to receive messages about gender throughout our lives. (Wood & Bodey, 2011, p. 100). Is gender learned? Are we born with a specific gender? What does the research suggest? These are the questions we often consider when we study gender.

As you explore these questions, think about how foundational pieces of our identities are shaped throughout our life. It is important to understand that our identities are formed by our culture and other key influences that shape who we are as we grow and develop. The truth is that we do not passively receive gender, but, rather, we select messages to accept or reject over time.

  • Gender is learned.
    • We are born with our sex (male, female), and we learn our gender (masculine, feminine).
    • We learn and express our gender through interactions with others and with the media.
  • Cultures create gender by giving social meanings to biological sex.
    • Gender differs from culture to culture.
    • Currently, in the United States, masculinity is associated with strength, ambition, rationality, and emotional control.
    • Currently, in the United States, femininity is associated with physical attractiveness, deferential and nurturing behavior, emotional expression, and concern with people and relationships.
  • Gender is not stable.
    • Cultural and individual meanings of gender can change over time and context.
    • New identity labels (people who reject traditional gender categories) challenge our ideas about gender.
    • Gender is a relational concept. We can only understand masculinity in relation to femininity, and vice versa. Changing ideas about one gender affect the other.
  • Gender is a social, symbolic construction that varies across cultures, over time within a given culture, over the course of individuals’ life spans, and in relation to the other gender.
    • Self-as-object is a central process in personal identity formation. In this process, we are able to think about, reflect upon, and respond to ourselves. As we internalize others’ views of us, their views become important to how we see and evaluate ourselves.
    • Monitoring is a second process in identity formation, in which we engage in internal dialogues with these internalized perspectives. Through these dialogues, we remind ourselves what others have told us to think, do, look like, feel, and so on.

Personal Philosophy of Nursing Essay Assignment

ORDER ORIGINAL, PLAGIARISM-FREE ESSAY PAPERS HERE

Use the questions from Box 3-2 on page 111 of your textbook as a guide as you write your personal philosophy of nursing. The essay is to be typewritten and double-spaced (1,000 words) and should include the following:

1. Introduction that includes who you are and where you practice nursing

2. Definition of nursing

3. Assumptions or underlying beliefs

4. Definitions and examples of the major domains of nursing

5. Summary that includes answers to the following questions: a. How are the domains connected? b. What is your vision of nursing for the future? c. What are the challenges that you will face as a nurse? d. What are your goals for professional development?

Grading Criteria for the Philosophy of Nursing Essay:

Introduction 10%

Definition of nursing 20%

Assumptions or underlying beliefs 20%

Definitions of major domains of nursing 25%

Summary 10%

Organization, focus, grammar, spelling,

punctuation, and usage (writing rubric) 10%

APA 5%

Total 100%

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses. Grand Canyon University Application of Statistics for Health Care Discussion

Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work). Grand Canyon University Application of Statistics for Health Care Discussion
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.

LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
