Assignment 3: Perspectives on Gender Identity

M1 Assignment 3 Submission



Assignment 3: Perspectives on Gender Identity

This assignment challenges you to examine theoretical perspectives about gender identity and compare them to your own gender identity development. You will use your personal experiences to answer questions about identity and explore any related conflicts or affirmations as to whether you agree or disagree with the accuracy of the theory you picked.

Using the Argosy University online library resources and the Internet, research theories of gender development (such as Social Learning Theory, Cognitive Development Theory, Gender Schema Theory, Gilligan's Gender Identity Theory, and Gender Transcendence) and current perspectives on the role of nature and nurture in gender identity development that might help explain your own gender identity development. Answer the following questions.

· Describe the gender theory that you picked.

· Analyze the accuracy of the interpretation of the theory and how it relates to you—do you fit the mold?

· Explain how gender identity may have changed in the past 2–3 generations (i.e., your parents and grandparents) with changing dynamics in family (divorce, single parents, women in the workforce, Title IX, etc.).

· Reflect on how your gender identity impacts the way you communicate with those of the same gender, different gender, etc.

Include a reference page in APA format of your research resources.

Write a 2- to 3-page essay in Word format. Apply APA standards for writing style to your work. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M1_A3.doc. For example, if your name is John Smith, your document will be named SmithJ_M1_A3.doc.

Social Science – Sociology

Project: Final Project


What is your vision for social change? What outcomes would you like to see regarding the social issue on which you have focused during this course? What might you be able to contribute to the realization of those outcomes? This Assignment provides an opportunity for synthesizing the information you have researched and the ideas you have formulated regarding your social issue. It also provides an opportunity for peer review and collective comments in Week 6.

To prepare for this Project:


  • Review the Final Project section of the Course Project Overview and Guidelines located in this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Consider the scope of what you have learned regarding your social issue. What insights have resonated? What inspiration have you drawn from examples in the Learning Resources? What can one person do to make a difference on this issue? What can many people do?
  • With all of this in mind, consider actions you can take that might impact this issue. What is the objective of each action? What might be gained?

Due by Sunday 12/31/17


Develop a Final Presentation by writing a (3-page paper, not including cover page or references).


Include the following:


  • Introduction
  • Summary of the problem
  • Potential solutions
  • Key actions that you as an individual can take
  • Objectives/desired outcomes of each action
  • Expected objectives for the immediate future and 5–10 years from now
  • Conclusion

The following should be evident in the Final Project:


  • Research (using sources to formulate the presentation)
  • Explanation (articulating the issue or problem to be addressed)
  • Analysis (looking at the connections between the facts and assumptions when discussing your issue)
  • Stance (taking a definitive perspective and calling for specific goals)
  • Understanding (acknowledging any counter perspectives or problems related to proposed solutions)
  • Implementation (listing concrete steps—both personal and collective—that might be taken to solve the problem)

Be sure to support your statements with APA Style in-text citations.
