1. What EVIDENCE does Truth offer for her contention that women do not “need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches” (2)? How sufficient is that evidence to prove her point?

2. Write an essay arguing that boys and girls are (or are not) socialized in fundamentally different ways that account (or do not account) for specific differences in adult behaviors—for example, in speech patterns—between males and females. Cite personal experience as appropriate, but also refer to your reading and research in a relevant academic field, such anthropology, sociology, or linguistics.

Below is a preview of the Argumentative Essay assignment we will be working on for the next couple of weeks:
Write a persuasive essay—one that has a clearly stated thesis and presents an argument on a specific topic from the list below. You must use at least 4 secondary sources from the BPCC library. Not a basic Google search
Requirements: 1500 words for the essay itself (final draft)
Outline 700 (TEAL outline)– Rough draft
Total of six paragraphs
· Include at least two supporting points.
· Use outside sources that are in MLA format and cited in-text. This means that you will need a work cited page and in-text citations. The works cited page is part of your essay and is on a separate page at the end of the essay. The easiest way to include your work cited page is to insert a page break at the end of your essay and then build your works cited page from there. Also, make sure to follow MLA guidelines (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. for citations.
You must include four outside sources in your rough draft. I am not “requiring” an additional source for your final draft. However, it a great way to add length to your final draft.
You must include a works cited page with both your rough and final drafts.
Consider the opposition. Have a section— the first body paragraph in your essay. —in which you consider the opposite of your thesis—the opposing view—and explain why, in the end, you disagree with the opposition.
