Hi everyone, I did an essay on gender and attainment and got my teacher to mark it. One of her comments was to add the perspective of the New Right and Postmodernism, but I don't have any note of their views of gender and attainment and I can't find anything in any of my revision books. Does anyone know if there is specific information from them relating to gender and attainment or if i should just be general about it? e.g. Postmodernist see society as being more individualised and fragmented than in the past.
The question was evaluate the view that gender differences in both subject choice and educational achievement are mainly the result if the wider of wider society.
Thanks

There is a postmodernist view that gender is a social construct and is actually a spectrum, rather than a binary male/female thing. May be worth looking into and commenting on? Good luck!

potentially you could mention the new right policy of reforming a levels so theyre linear? could potentially give boys a better chance of success because theyre apparently not as good as girls with coursework according to Mitsos and Brown....if thats no use then just ignore me haha
also i would suggest doing a little synoptic link to how ethnicity, social class and gender can be combined and affect achievement too...but i wont go into detail about that cause you seem to know what yorue doing

As far as I know my class is done with the learning, so when we go back we're straight into revision and past papers but I literally am so lost on what we have to learn and I have no clue how to answer the questions especially the theory stuff

thats lucky then youve got a lot of time to go over everything..and i know the theory parts are impossible to guess, the questions could literally be about anything the society questions they could ask are so vague

If ur looking for any questions on the theory stuff I have a couple of revision guides that have example answers in them, they r on amazon if u wanted to take a look. I find them so much better than any notes my teacher has given me
