  • Please make certain that this document is formatted according to APA, which means that you should have a title page and a running head. This should be done correctly with no mistakes. Please google ---How do I create a title page and running head in APA if you don't know how or ask me or one of your APA savvy friends.
  • Make certain you meet the minimum requirements for length --at least 3 full pages.
  • Some of you are doing crazy stuff like centering you paragraphs. This is definitely a formatting faux pas and it will be heavily penalized. Pay attention to the little details!

And finally, I have short reading for you from the Gender Reader. "How Big Are Your Balls?" and "The High Cost of Manliness" by Robert Jensen. These two pieces are very short and they start on p. 124.
