Consider that there are many gender misconceptions in education. For example, some people believe that boys are more suited for and more interested in math and science. Think about other stereotypes that exist related to gender. How do these stereotypes and misconceptions impact education in the United States? What are your beliefs regarding ability differences between males and females in general and in education? What evidence can you present to validate your viewpoint? Also consider the existing laws that are meant to guarantee equal treatment in education for girls and boys.
For this assignment, address at least three of the following common misconceptions: 1. Boys are more suited for and more interested in math and science than girls are. 2. Boys who participate in the arts are more likely to be homosexual. 3. Girls are more interested in domestic arts than boys are. 4. Boys are more interested in auto shop and wood shop than girls are. 5. Boys are more competitive in sports and academics than girls are. · Check the Main forum to see which discussion cluster your instructor has assigned you to work with. In this cluster, you and your peers must discuss the impact of at least three of the above misconceptions on education. You must include information from your discussion cluster in your Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation. · Refer to Appendix E, if you need to, for directions and tips on building a Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation. · Create a 12- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation addressing the following points: o Explain ways to "debunk" three of the five gender misconceptions listed above based on the results of the peer discussion and your own University Library research. o Explain at least one point made by one of your peers in the discussion cluster. o Cite at least one reference from the University Library in your presentation. o Use 1 to 2 slides for the introduction; 2 to 3 slides for each misconception; and 1 to 2 slides for the conclusion. The reference and title pages do not count in your overall slide total. o Use presenter's notes to clarify content as needed throughout the presentation. o NOTE: You may address more than three of the five misconceptions if you wish, but still adhere to the 12- to 15-slide limit. · Cite your sources according to APA guidelines. · Cite the information from you peer taken from the discussion cluster according to APA guidelines for personal communication.
I don't believe this one bit. I always felt that whoever started this idea was someone who was jealous of a very talented young man and wanted him to feel badly. To me the only thing that can limit who can participate in the arts is the talent or imagination of the person not their gender. Plus if the arts was only filled with females that would not make it very "artful" in my opinion. Sure there are males that are gay in the arts but being gay is not limited having a career in the arts. There are many homosexual males that are professionals, doctors, lawyers, and athletes.

It may be that boys are more competitive in sports and academics than girls are, but I believe that's because they are encouraged to be that way and girls are not. Just taking in consideration the culture that we live in boys are always encouraged to be more agressive and girls, well we were encouraged to be "submissive" in nature, more docile. As a girl I was competitive in sports and academics (more so in sports). I loved playing ball with the guys anytime over playing house with the girls. I was called a "tomboy", but I didn't care. But I realize that was my personality and had nothing to do with my gender. No one really would know I was such a tomboy then because I'm such a "girly girl" now
I agree with this 100% Many young guys are have ran a crossed who are athletes main concerns are only their sports. Their academics come last. If you run across a boy who plays a sport if you ask him what are you going to be when you grow up 9-out of 10 will say something that deals with the sport they play. If you ask a young girl what do she want to be you probably would hear a doctor, teacher and even a lawyer. Vernice Deis
I do not belive that boys are more competitive in sports and academic than girls are. 25 years after title ix was passed the number of girls playing in school and community sports is approaching that of boys who participate. Personally I believe this stereotyping comes from society and the way they believe boys and girls should act and behave. However, in this day and time you see more and more girls playing sports, whom are just as aggressive, passionate, and competitive as boys.XXXXX XXXXX
I have noticed some classmates jump at answering this as though it is completely a myth. I have to disagree with you all. I recently took a child development course in which the text discussed several factors that contribute to these stereotypes. There are many reasons why boys and girls are interested in some things and not others. Male and female brain function is NOT the same; and although there are always exceptions to the rules, the truth is, the male brain will focus more on one particular subject that the female brain will not. It is also an explanation as to why boys who suffer from disorders such as autism, lack cognitive development in some areas, and not in others. It takes some research, but it is not a myth.
