How can I meet the word limit or page requirement for my writing assignment if I feel like I am stuck?
There are many ways to expand a paper, including providing a counter-argument or adding additional resources to establish credibility. No matter what wall you may be facing, there is undoubtedly a solution!
Subject: Gender Studies
Does Gender Studies only cover topics related to white, middle-class women?
No! Gender Studies is a broad field that seeks to understand the significance of gender in our society, exploring questions of what it means to be a woman, man, transgender, nonbinary, or other gender-nonconforming person. Gender Studies examines the intersections of topics such as race, class, ethnicity, sexuality, varying levels of ability, and so forth, as each of those categories informs our understandings of gender.
How can I retain information about the texts that I am reading?
Something I have learned that always helps me is either 1) taking notes directly in the margins of the text you are reading, or 2) making sticky notes (this could be physical or virtual) as you read. Doing either of these two things will not only help you map out your thought process as you read, but it will encourage you to jot down questions as you move along so that way later on in the text if you find an answer to one of those questions, you know you can return back to the place where you were previously confused.
