EBSCOhost: A Sex Difference in the Predisposition for Physical Competition: Males Play...

Dylan D's insight:

The purpose of this article was to demonstrate how girls ultimately have the predisposition of being inferior in sports. The article breaks down, through a series of physical events, how women not only are on average not as athletic but also compete less than men. The article is written by college graduates and in a scientific journal. Also the statistics were done in studies and first-hand observations. I plan on using this to help show another side to the idea of girls wrestling.

Good, complex, and data-driven source. Lots to absorb.

Women's Wrestling Facts | Adversity in Women's Wrestling | Scoop.it
Dylan D's insight:

The purpose of this page was to provide information on women’s wrestling in the United States. It explains how women’s wrestling is a rapidly rising sport and may be the ultimate savior of men’s wrestling. The page is from a fairly reliable source for when it comes to wrestling. It does have the flaw from being slightly outdated since it is from 2011. I plan on using this to give statistical facts on growth of women’s wrestling.

Good work acknowledging the flaw, but you can certainly still use the source. Where did their data come from?

WRESTLING: La Sierra's throwing girl - Press-Enterprise

WRESTLING: La Sierra's throwing girl
Press-Enterprise
With an extensive background in jiu-jitsu and judo, Reusing transitioned well last year as a wrestler, winning a CIF-SS title and placing fourth at state.
Dylan D's insight:

The purpose of the article was to explain a high school girl’s efforts to become better in the increasingly popular sport of women’s wrestling. The main idea focused on Kendall Reusing, a women’s wrestler from WA, who had used her background in martial arts to help her get a start in wrestling. Unofficially dubbed a one-trick-pony, a “throw girl”, she has worked hard to learn more diverse moves to better herself on the mat. It is not from the greatest of sources; it was found through Google news but from a small high school sport site. But, there are quotes from a direct interview with her and her coach. I plan on using this as an example of growing popularity and women’s effort in the sport.

EBSCOhost

Dylan D's insight:

The purpose of this article was to demonstrate how sports are valuable to the growth of young women. In the article they interviewed several girl athletes and non-athletes and determined that for the most part, the athletes were better academically and more well-rounded. This article is done by college graduate. They also interviewed actual high school girls for the study. I plan to show that women’s wrestling, being a sport, is valuable to young girls.

Because you pointed out that the source discusses value, you can use the source in a paragraph where you incorporate a stasis of value. Remember this for the outline.

EBSCOhost: High School Students'Attitudes Toward Providing Girls Opportunities to Part...

Dylan D's insight:

The purpose of this article was to inform people on the tolerance of female athletes in the high school setting. After testing they showed that the more competitive male athletes were the biggest group to oppose female athletes. The article was done by college graduates and has been proofread since it is an academic article. They took their information from real high school students as well. I plan on using this to show the presence of tolerance or lack thereof.
