Assignment

Sociologists describe gender roles as learned patterns of  behavior  that a society expects of men and women.   In other words, what we know as masculinity is a set of qualities that we expect to find in a typical man and femininity a set of qualities we expect to find in a typical woman.  Increasingly we are becoming aware that there may not be only one typical package of qualities that make up being female or male.  Some sociologists prefer to speak of the “performance of gender” since more and more men and women are performing roles once considered the domain of the other gender.
In what ways do you “do gender appropriately” according to the social norms described in the chapter? (make sure you reference parts of the chapters where gender role socialization and male/female gender behavior expectations are discussed). 
In what ways do you violate traditional gender norms? 
Discuss how following and violating social expectations of gendermake you feel and how others react to them.
Please present your response in paragraphs with clear sentences, proper spelling, grammar, sentence structure, tense agreement, etc .  You will be graded on both content (did you respond to each prompt and provide a citation/reference for the article you found?) and format (have you followed all structural requirements like proper spelling, grammar, sentence structure, tense agreement?)

about the author
Richard T. Schaefer: Professor Emeritus, DePaul

University
BA, Northwestern University,
MA, PhD, University of Chicago

Growing up in Chicago at a time when neighborhoods were going
through transitions in ethnic and racial composition, Richard T.
Schaefer found himself increasingly intrigued by what was happening,
how people were reacting, and how these changes were affecting
neighborhoods and people’s jobs. His interest in social issues caused
him to gravitate to sociology courses at Northwestern University,
where he eventually received a BA in sociology.

“Originally as an undergraduate I thought I would go on to law
school and become a lawyer. But after taking a few sociology courses,
I found myself wanting to learn more about what sociologists studied,
and fascinated by the kinds of questions they raised.” This fascination
led him to obtain his MA and PhD in sociology from the University of
Chicago. Dr. Schaefer’s continuing interest in race relations led him to
write his master’s thesis on the membership of the Ku Klux Klan and
his doctoral thesis on racial prejudice and race relations in Great
Britain.

Dr. Schaefer went on to become a professor of sociology at DePaul
University in Chicago. In 2004 he was named to the Vincent DePaul
professorship in recognition of his undergraduate teaching and
scholarship. He has taught introductory sociology for over 35 years to
students in colleges, adult education programs, nursing programs, and
even a maximum-security prison. Dr. Schaefer’s love of teaching is
apparent in his interaction with his students. “I find myself constantly
learning from the students who are in my classes and from reading
what they write. Their insights into the material we read or current
events that we discuss often become part of future course material
and sometimes even find their way into my writing.”

Dr. Schaefer is the author of the thirteenth edition of Sociology
(McGraw-Hill, 2012), Sociology in Modules, fourth edition (McGraw-
Hill, 2018), the seventh edition of Sociology Matters (McGraw-Hill,
2018), and, with Robert Feldman, Sociology and Your Life with
P.O.W.E.R. Learning (2016). He is also the author of Racial and
Ethnic Groups, now in its fifteenth edition (2019), Racial and Ethnic
Diversity in the USA (first edition, 2014), and Race and Ethnicity in the
United States, (ninth edition, 2019), all published by Pearson.
Together with William Zellner, he coauthored the ninth edition of
Extraordinary Groups, published by Waveland Press in 2015. Dr.
Schaefer served as the general editor of the three-volume
Encyclopedia of Race, Ethnicity, and Society, published by Sage in
2008. These books have been translated into Chinese, Japanese,
Portuguese, and Spanish, as well as adapted for use in Canadian
colleges.

Dr. Schaefer’s articles and book reviews have appeared in many
journals, including American Journal of Sociology; Phylon: A Review
of Race and Culture; Contemporary Sociology; Sociology and Social
Research; Sociological Quarterly; Patterns of Prejudice; and Teaching
Sociology. He served as president of the Midwest Sociological Society
in 1994–1995.

Dr. Schaefer’s advice to students is to “look at the material and
make connections to your own life and experiences. Sociology will
make you a more attentive observer of how people in groups interact
and function. It will also make you more aware of people’s different

needs and interests—and perhaps more ready to work for the
common good, while still recognizing the individuality of each person.”
