Question 1.Part Four of Applied Final Project, Role Reversals: Understanding Our Gendered Selves:’Understanding My Role-Reversal Act’ (20% of course grade; due end of Week 7)Five (5) pages (1200-1500 words)All parts of this project should be formatted in APA style (follow for both essay and citation styles): APA Style Guide: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/Purpose: Act Performance and AnalysisAt this point, you will have completed your act. In this final part of the assignment, you will describe and analyze it. Write a five page (1200-1500 words) paper detailing your experiences. The first section one-third to one half of your paper should describe your act and your responses to it, and the second one-half to two-thirds of your paper should analyze your act in terms of the scholarship on gender:Section One (minimum 500 words):Describe your act:What did you do?Where did you do it?How did you prepare for it?What responses did you get while performing your act?How did you feel while performing your act?What would you do differently if you had to perform this same act again? Would you perform the act in the same location and at same time? Would you change your appearance during the act? Would you do anything else differently? Please refer to the required reading on Participant Observation for this assignment (Mack et al., 2005) [link provided in general description of assignment above].Section Two: (minimum 700 words):Using at least three of the sources you identified and discussed in your Annotated Bibliography for Part 3, and/or the readings for this class for support (provide direct quotes for full credit), consider the potential impact of your act. Here are some questions to consider (you do not have to answer all of these questions; they are provided to help you to think about ways your act may have impact on society):Can you explain the range of reactions to your act? Did those reactions reflect any of the sociological scholarship found in the course readings or in your research? Did any of the reactions challenge that research?How do you think class, race, age, and sexuality came into play during the conception and performance of the act? Was performing this act an act of feminism? Why? and, if so, what type(s) of feminism? Was your act an act of activism? That is, could it help to create social change? If so, how?Rubric for Part Four CriteriaExcellent: Points Possible20 pointsGood: Points Possible17 pointsSatisfactory: Points Possible15 pointsBarely Satisfactory: Points Possible13 pointsUnsatisfactory: Points Possible10 pointsSection One CompletenessPaper responds to all Section One questions clearly and with vivid, detailed examples and explanations.

One topic that connects all of the readings for this week is the idea of ‘neutrality.’ We hear frequent calls for gender neutrality as a way to equitably apply laws and deliver benefits, but at the same time, addressing inequality would seem to require understanding any gender differences that led to inequality in the first place, and policies that would target help where it is needed.This week’s reading focused on three institutions that affect people throughout their lives: the educational system, religion, and politics.As a response to this post,Consider what the term ‘neutrality’ means in each of these readings. What is political neutrality? What is gender-neutral education (or educational policy)? Sum up the pros and cons of a neutral approach to studying religion or education. How does gender introduce difficulties for a purely neutral approach? What are the benefits of considering intersectionality when trying to answer this question?Argue for or against government policies toward religion and education taking a neutral approach. What is at stake? Who will benefit from the approach you have decided to choose? You will need to choose a side, but you may choose different sides in each case. If you choose different sides, be sure to explain how education and religion differ when it comes to government policies.
