Grammar Practice: Pronoun Ambiguity #2

Review introductory paragraphs with group members, then begin work on body paragraphs for the Stewart prompt.
Use the handouts for tips and samples to guide you.

HW: Find and bring in two magazine advertisements that show gender roles or gender stereotypes and be prepared to discuss them. (For example, bring an advertisement that shows a woman cooking dinner, or a man doing something rugged and outdoorsy. You can also bring in an ad that suggests a stereotypical value – that women should be “beautiful” or men should be “tough,” or may find ads that REVERSE gender stereotypes/expectations.) Ads printed from the internet are ok, too, provided they are in color, page-sized, and easy to read/see. All ads must be acceptable for classroom viewing/posting (although something “sexy” like a girl in a bikini is OK—but no offensive nudity or illegal drugs, please. Use your best judgment, and bring a backup ad if unsure).
