After preparing for the HSPA and, in all likely-hood, nailing it, our class will be exploring women in America. Synthesizing texts like A Street Car Named Desire with poems from Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, and Maya Angelou will be one of the main focuses. Some of the questions we will explore will be:
Are women portrayed only as sex objects in the media?
Should women have a say whether they can keep or abort a baby?
Are women capable of making military decisions (being President)?
