Assignment: For this assignment, you have the option of picking which reading and question you would like to respond to. Note, although you only have to respond to one reading and question, you should read both before choosing.
For TS: “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” (596-616) complete the following:
- Write a paragraph stating your own thoughts and perceptions on mixing family and career. Given Anne-Marie Slaughter’s arguments, how do you think she would respond to what you say?
For TS: “Why Men Still Can’t Have It All” (617-637) complete the following:
- Imagine you had a chance to speak to Richard Dorment about this article. In a paragraph, write what you would say, remembering to frame your statement as a response to what he said. How do you think he would respond?
Guidelines for Completing Discussion Questions: Your response to the assigned discussion question should be at least 250 words in length. Failure to complete all parts of the assignment or submitting underdeveloped answers will lead to point deductions. This discussion question response is due by 11:59 p.m. on its assigned due date.
Your response should be clear, developed, and progressive, meaning that it adds depth to the discussion. Often, it’s great to respond to the assigned prompt using examples from the texts or materials and then end with one or two questions of your own to help add to a running conversation.
