The first one draft first
Please submit a draft of your final paper for our teaching team to review here.
Use week 6 reflection in this and I posted what you wrote in week 7 who is your audience.
You wrote this
The paper will talk about gender and sex identities because they cover and consume a bigger aspect of society. Through gender and sex identities, society creates different pressures and roles that affect the lives of males and females. I want to explore how gender roles and sex orientation contribute to personal and societal decisions on family, child-bearing, and marriage. What choices and options does society present to men and women to lead their lives? In addition, I would also look at how age and life stage contribute to the above gender roles and how different genders approach the issues at a personal and societal level.
You will full receive credit for whatever you submit.
We will only be able to give you as much feedback, however, as you submit in your draft.
What we strongly recommend is that you include at least an outline with the following elements of your final paper.
Part 1: Your Identities and Stories
What are the five stories that you will be including in your final paper and which of the five identities from class are you connecting with each story? You don’t need to write out the entire story, just a sentence with the story and how you are going to link it to one of our identities.
As you move from your draft to your final paper, please remember that you need at least one systemically dominant and one systemically targeted identity. You also need to make clear connections to the justice you are seeking for yourself or others for each of these named identities.
Please remember, you may include more than three identities from our course. Also, remember, you may include other identities (e.g. religion/spirituality, disability/health, etc.), and these are in addition to the three identities you are going to include.
Part 2: Outside References
As you’re working toward your final paper, please provide an annotated bibliography here of your 5 outside references that you will cite in your final paper.
Again, these are references we did not read or watch in class (music videos and optional readings from class count as inside references). This means include your APA reference (check APA Owl
(Links to an external site.)
and then a sentence or two on how you’re connecting with the reference and how you plan on using that reference
. You must include the author’s or authors family names, the individual initial, the year of publication, the title of the piece, and then who and where the piece is published. All cited pieces must have an attributable author or editorial group and a date of publication. You may cite conversations with people outside of class. Authors must have a family/last name and given/first name initial. For artists who use nicknames, please look up what their given names are. If you are citing someone from in our class, they count as an in-class reference. If you are citing someone from outside our class, they count as an out-of-class reference. Use the citation below for the APA reference list.
Last, F. (2020). Personal communication.
Here, again, are the instructions for the final paper.
Write a 3000-word SEED autobiography. You must include:
· in depth discussion of at least three of your identities that we discuss in class (including at least 1 systemically dominant and 1 systemically targeted identity) including how you identify with this identity, how others identify you with this identity, and how you understand this identify to be linked to social and systemic power;
· at least five stories of specific moments from your life that illustrate your understanding of your identities;
· at least 15 references (cited in text and listed on a reference page) including introducing at least 10 references from class and 5 new references from outside of class that help connect your understanding of your own identity to these identities as broader social systems of power
· a through line that connects your stories together and is forward facing – what brings your stories together and where will you go from here?
You must submit two drafts for feedback (one to your instructors and one to a peer) and you will also have an in-person individual writing conference.
Final papers must be typed, use APA formatting, and be submitted on Canvas. Late papers will be marked down 1/3 of a grade for every 24 hours they are late.
Essential knowledge on age, gender, social classes, and racial identities is greatly contributed by listening to music and reading books. White Fragility is a book I would opt for describing social classes and all discriminative life identities. The book has an exclusive exploration attempt on the counterproductive reactions the white people create when their assumptions about race have struggled down and how racial inequalities are maintained through their reactions. The author of the book, Eric Dyson, an antiracist educator, deftly illuminates the incidence of the whites’ fragility and gives the book’s readers a room to understand social classes and identities as an unrestricted practice to bad people. White fragility such as argumentation, silence, anger, guilt, and fear characterizes these challenges arising from racial discrimination (Frey et al., 2020). These behaviors have a huge contribution to reinstating the racial equilibrium of the whites and therefore counter any staged cross-racial dialogue.
The intersection between sexuality, social classes, gender, or race gives rise to social inequalities, leading to diverse identities in society. The challenges coming along with these identities are different at different life stages and ages. Readers of the White Fragility are given room to have a clear understanding, analysis, and evaluation of their rights, giving knowledge on how to avoid discrimination.

We’ve been working all quarter pulling together stories, developing our system analyses, and considering what justice might look like for each of us and all of us. To help each of you pull it all together, we have asked you to write a 3000-word (maximum) final paper with at least 3 identities (including at least 1 systemically dominant identity and 1 systemically targeted identity); at least 5 stories that show us your world, systems, and justice; and 15 references (including at least 10 from in class and 5 from outside of class).
What is the thread that is going to hold all of these elements together?
This is up to you to decide.
What we require, though, is that you do have a thread and in that thread is your purpose and your audience.
Here are three possibilities that have been quite popular for past students.
1) Personal Statement: many students choose to use their Education 251 final paper as the first draft of a personal statement that they will use in applying to graduate school, for a dream job, or in developing a new organization or endeavor. This approach brings cohesion to your final paper in that each identity, story, and reference shows that you have lived, that you have studied, and that you know why whatever you’re applying to or building is the next right thing for you. What may be challenging is that you need to have a fairly clear vision of where you are trying to go in order to take this approach.
2) Personal Letter: originally students used this approach to “come out” to loved ones about some aspect of their life such as their queer identity or else their desire to switch majors into education. Again this approach brings the same cohesion as what you shared before as well as the connection to your audience. In addition to the same sticky points as the personal statement, another benefit to this approach is that your stories can include your audience (which has included partners, family members, Greek organizations, athletic teams, departmental faculty, etc.). And similarly challenging, do you have an audience with whom you have a really important message to share?
3) Letter to Your Future Self: this one starts off feeling the strangest and has recently become quite popular. Envision talking to a future version of yourself (first decide how far in the future you will be talking with yourself). What is the first question you would ask you future self? (By the way, these questions make great section titles.) Imagine that your future self responds to whatever question you ask by asking you, “why do you care?” Now answer that question with a story and analysis of your world, systems, and justice. Why does this approach work? Because it depends on the self-reflective practices that we have taken up all quarter long to develop our stories and understanding of our worlds. Why is this approach challenging? Students taking this approach often will forget to include their systemic analysis.
I wrote this for the assignment something about me!!
For the discussion boards, please look over these options. Reflect and journal about all three of the options above.
a) What is a dream graduate program or job that you would apply to or organization/endeavor that you would start?
b) What is a message that you would want to share with someone meaningful in your life?
c) What is a question that you would ask yourself at what point in the future?
Then journal about how each option feels for you as a possibility. Post what you are ready to post, and read and respond respectfully to others.
My goal is to receive a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Pre-Med at the University of Washinton. I am studying to become a doctor which is my dream job. In the future, my goal is to become a Psychiatrist and help adults and children with mental illnesses. I am a certified Medical Assistant and I have worked at many clinics where I have assisted doctors and helped patients.
For my future self, I would write that I am goal-oriented, humble, and efficient.
