Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to attend a single sex school.
Central Idea: Single sex schools have been proven to better ease the mind when it comes to education.
All girl schools have been gaining popularity in recent years because of the belief that girls learn better when they aren 't competing with or intimidated by boys, who statistically get more attention in the classroom. After my recent survey of the class five of the twenty-one students who took the survey said that single sex school could better benefit them in the classroom. Fourteen disagreed and two were unsure. Well today I 'm going to give you the background, the research, and the advantages of attending a single sex school. (Transitions: Now let 's begin with some background information.) I. Girls and boys simply learn differently.
A. According to Education.com, girls tend to mature faster both socially and physically. 1. Girls develop language fluency, fine motor skills, and understanding of abstract concepts before boys do. 2. According to Education.com, because of the understanding of abstract concepts, girls take up math, computer science, and physics class; as well as play sports.
B. Boys gain large motor control sooner, tends to be more literal than girls. 1. Boys excel at spatial relationships. 2. Also stated in Education.com, boys are more likely to study art, music, drama, and foreign languages.
C.A girl’s brain remains more mature than a boy 's brain from birth through childhood, through adolescence, and into adulthood. 1. The brain of a six-year-old boy looks like the brain of a four-year-old girl. 2. The brain of a seventeen-year-old boy looks like the brain of n eleven-year-old girl. 3. The men don 't catch up the women until their about thirty.
(Transition: Now that you 're aware of the background information, I 'm going to move on to the research.) II.
