• Write two discussion questions per article. Questions must be typed and submitted to Blackboard
by the beginning of class time on the day that the relevant article is to be discussed (see syllabus).
• Discussion questions should neither be too specific (“What does the fourth word on p. 27 mean?”)
nor too general (“Was this a good article? Why or why not?”). Try to strike a balance between the
specific and general. Try to ask thought-provoking questions that make connections to other areas
of study and other realms of life—what you saw on the news, read in the paper or a magazine, etc.
• Be sure to point the reader to the specific content of the article that your question addresses.
• Avoid questions with “yes/no” or “either/or” answers; good discussion questions are open-ended.
Also avoid leading questions. See below for examples of good discussion questions.
Example Discussion Questions
1. What negative consequences could result if parents followed Bem’s suggestion to raise androgynous
boys and girls? How might peers respond to boys with stereotypically feminine characteristics and girls
with stereotypically masculine characteristics? What are the positive consequences of raising
androgynous boys and girls? Where does one draw the line between a healthy de-emphasis on gender
and a healthy acknowledgment of gender in raising children?
2. Josephs, Markus, and Tafarodi argue that individuation (distinguishing the self from others on the
basis of talents or accomplishments) does not serve as a significant source of esteem for American
women (because of gender-role socialization). How accurately does their argument describe women in
the U.S.? Explain your response. How do women in the U.S. compare, in terms of how individualistic
they are, to men and women in Asian cultures? How does the pressure that women feel in our society to
be appropriately “feminine” interact with the individualistic norms that all Americans experience?
