Chivalry today is a variety of manners that a guy is supposed to do for a girl or woman. It is still taught to young boys and is stapled in the community as such, because things like holding the door, offering help, and protecting one they love is made values when it was introduced. But, it should still remain intact today, because in this time most people don’t use it as much but it should stay around because it is a way to keep women happy and show the kind side to men.
4 - Good explication and good use of examples
4 - good argument and use of example from the text
Class: Overall did a better job on restating the question in the answer from last week
The class could all work on using a higher/better vocabulary
To what degree does chivalry exist in society today. In today's world chivalry is not dead, but modernized. The new generation of people do not feel entitled to a thank you or a card. Older generation feel entitled to a thank you or other manors. The roles of chivalry is equal now. Woman are the bread winners in some house holds. Chivalry goes both ways now.
4 - Explains chivalry very well and keeps the argument equal.
4 - explains both sides of argument with details
Chivalry is a code of manner that a man has for a woman. Today, chivalry goes both ways for men and women. If a woman sees a man struggling with something, then she should be the one to step up and help him, same as if it were a woman struggling and a man saw her. Chivalry is a respect factor that people have grown up with, meaning everyone is apart of it, it does not discriminate between genders.
4 - gives a good idea and overlook of chivalry.
4 - describes modern chivalry but still uses examples from the text
Chivalry is the acts of courtesy and manners. It is most seen from men to women as a sign of showing respect. In society today, chivalry lacks in the way that it is not shown in the same way as it used to be. In our communities today, we see chivalry being more equal between men and women. For example, if a women is walking through a door and there is a man behind her, she'll hold the door for him. Women are also much more independent in today's society. This leads us to wonder if maybe the equality of chivalry is causing more of the attacks and violence towards women. Some people are born into more old school families that practice chivalry as a way to respect women and praise them. More modern ways of practicing chivalry is just to have a mutual respect for both men and women.
4 - The idea of how chivalry is used and how it is brought up into peoples lives is presented well.
4 - Presents her argument well while using lots of details
In these days,chivalry is more the idea of being polite,than it is "woman worship", like the text said. And, it is also seen everyday. Someone will notice you coming and open a door, or hold it,or offer to help, no matter who you are. So I do believe that it should remain intact the way it is now.
3 - the stereo type of chivalry is given here.
3 - describes his beliefs well but didn't use much details to fully describe his argument.
Chivalry has been open on a spectrum today. That in today's world some women seem to want to be independent and on their own. When others have been taught to be a house wife. I see Chivalry as a good thing, because I have been grown up in this spectrum and that women do choirs around the house as men do them outside. I still appreciative when a man opens my door or has a nice jester. But also I respect men and give them that same as they would give me. It's just a nice jester, I personally don't think it makes women less of a person to get some help from men. But I'm also independent and I can do stuff on my own. I grew up saying men should treat me right but also support yourself for your further. Never relies fully on one person, always respect yourself and know your boundaries. I feel that Chivalry is still alive, not in some house hold but everyone knows about it and should know how to treat a women in the right way.
4 - Chivalry is presented well and personally experience helps explain the idea.
4 - delivers her argument strongly and uses descriptive personal experiences
Chivalry in today's society is dead. People nowadays are so opinionated that some people are made to feel bad about certain things they appreciate doing. No man wants to hold open a door for a woman just to be called sexist, so they just don't do it anymore. What most people fail to realize is that most woman aren't that sensitive to such things, and they actually might appreciate you holding the door open for her. Everyone has their own opinion, so why not just ask if it makes them uncomfortable?
4 - gives both sides of opinions and uses real world examples
4 - A very good argument making a good claim towards their own opinion.
Chivalry in our society exists in limited and varied ways, especially in comparisons to how it used to exist. Since it originated in times that woman were seen as very fragile and weak compared to men, the outlook on why we have chivalry has changed. It has become more of a respectful act than it was a protective act. With the strong feminism out there today, woman have began to stand up and fight the stereotype of being the weaker sex, so some women don like the chivalry because they still see it as being called weak or fragile. However, you see a lot of the chivalry today being a respect thing from men more than it being whatever protective act it used to be considered.
4 - describes how chivalry has changed from many years ago to modernly while using some good details
4 - Gives a good description of how woman have became more independent and how chivalry affects them.
Chivalry in today's society is still alive, however it has been modernized for today's standards. This might not be good thing to some peoples eyes as some people believe that young men should be more respectful and being courtesy to women. While other people believe that no man should be like that, because they believe that woman are just as superior as men. They take chivalry as a sign of weakness, when normally men are just trying to show respect to their girlfriend, wife, mom and etc.
4 - The meaning for chivalry is explained well in this argument
I believe chivalry still exists in today's society, just not at a very high degree. Many men and women are taught manners to use towards others but chivalry is viewed and used differently. I also see that chivalry should work between both genders and just not be male dominant. I believe everyone should have chivalry towards any gender and it would make the world a better place.
4 - argues his opinions good, just could use some more details
Chivalry today is going out of your way to do nice things for other people, such as holding doors or helping them carry their things - it has since evolved from acts only done towards women to acts done toward people of all genders. Nowadays, if you were to see an old man struggling to open something you would theoretically offer to help, whereas if we went back thousands and thousands of years ago, the old man might continue to struggle due to people's unwillingness to help masculine figures like they would with a female. Chivalry is simply just having manners and being a decent human being to everyone in the modern age, and good manners are what lead to peace and getting along with those around you.
4 - explains how modern chivalry is used really well
4 - The idea of chivalry is presented well with good examples and the history of it.
Chivalry does exist in society today. Chivalry in some aspects, should exist, but it depends on the point of view of the person that is acting with chivalry. If the person that is acting chivalrous because they think that the person they are being chivalrous to is not competent enough to do it on their own then chivalry is not appropriate. If the person is being chivalrous because they are doing it to show respect or to show politeness, then it is appropriate and should be appreciated by the person that is getting the chivalry. In the article, it states that "Chivalry is not an act of courtesy or deference or the result of condescending attitude; chivalry is respect and mutual admiration." This quote tells me that as long as there is mutual respect in the relationship between the two people than chivalry should not be seen as degrading.
4 - looks at both sides of the argument and backs up both sides
4 - Both ideas are presented well and gives a good outlook on chivalry
Chivalry exist to a point in our society today. Depending on your family traditions and how you are raised implies if you are more of a "old code" chivalry or have a modern take on chivalry. Some families with the old chivalry believe men should do the man jobs of the house and provide for the family, but the families with the modern take on chivalry believe the women can do the jobs that men do also. Chivalry exist in our society today, there is both of the takes on it that occur in homes daily. Chivalry should exist but on a more modern base, many females have began to do jobs that in the old ways of chivalry males would have done.
4 - does a good job describing how men can and do use modern chivalry in today's day and age.
4 - gives the stereo-type of what chivalry is thought to be
Chivalry exists today but not in the way it had before. Throughout history it was common for the men to be seen as superior and for women to be seen as lesser and in a weaker state. To some, chivalry is still a way to show that the men are superior and don't need help. Chivalry could be anywhere from holding the door to paying for the meal. As women are now becoming equal to men, many think chivalry is putting women back down and seeing them as lesser. Although this is seen often, chivalry is still existent and is now being seen both ways toward men and women. Chivalry is a sign of respect and showing a helping hand to one another. Chivalry is important today because it brings out a caring side of people that isn't shown as much today.
4 - describes how chivalry was used in the past how men can use it the future and present day
4 - very good at explaining chivalry from the past to present
Chivalry does exist in society today because even though it is being taught less in modern day households, many families still teach their sons to respect and honor women which was the whole reason Chivalry was created around the Middle Ages. Nowadays the term has received a sexist label but in actuality it is a way for a man to love and honor females for all the things they do to support males. Chivalry in modern days can also be considered for women towards men. They do small, respectful acts that help men out just as how men do for women such as holding the door open or carrying groceries for the female. Examples of females doing chivalrous acts are doing dishes or doing laundry. Society likes to only see the bad in things but in reality chivalry is spread out across the two genders and will stay that way no matter what society tries to change.
4 - This argument gives a very good point on how chivalry can be viewed in many people eyes in modern day
4 - argues how modern chivalry is used both views while using some details
Chivalry still exists today in modern culture but no where near the extent it did in past generations. Men offer their assistance to women out of respect because that is what they are taught to do by parents or other superiors. I believe that it should stay around because it is some of the only respect we show towards one another in our society anymore. It does not mean men think women are not competent or able to do it, it means we are there to support them.
3 or 4 - argues his point clearly, but could use more details on how chivalry used in past generations
4 - this makes a good claim about his thought about chivalry
Chivalry does still exist, to an extent, in our society today. The idea of Chivalry has most certainly faded into the traditions of times past, but some of the kind actions included within the Chivalry texts are still being performed by men today. Something as little as holding a door for a woman or helping them carry things could be defined as a chivalrous act. Many of these types of chivalrous ideals have been instilled in men from a very young age by the men in their family in hopes that they will be passed down for generations. Chivalry most definitely has its place in society today. In today's more equal society, men and women both can perform chivalrous acts towards each other. Therefore, dissolving the argument that chivalry is sexist and proving its importance to society today.
4 - good response to how it is used modernly while still using example form the past
4 - a great response of how chivalry is modernized from the past to present
Chivalry still exists in today's society. Yes it should still exist. It show's that people are still being kind and nice to each other and still showing respect for one another. It doesn't have to be a guy holding the door for a girl it can be a guy holding the door for another guy. Some people still open car doors for people and close it behind them. It doesn't get used very often, but when it does it makes you feel welcome and appreciated to be wherever you are.
3 - good answer of how it should be used, just needs more detail.
3 - a good idea of chivalry but needs more detail in the story
Does chivalry still exist in todays society? This is a very touchy topic when it should not have to be. Chivalry is just a way to show respect for women and show that a man has manners.The one thing that is most common is opening doors for women. In todays society women see that as offensive and "sexist". Just because a man opens a door does not mean that they are showing that women are the weaker sex it is just showing how much he cares. For something like chivalry to be considered sexist astonishes me. Chivalry was created as a genuine act of moral creation. Chivalry should not go away and should remains, it is a way of showing that a man actually cares.
4 - describes how chivalry is used very well, but it is a bit opinionated
4 - very one-sided claim but it does give a good point of view on how chivalry works today.
The concept of chivalry still has a presence in the modern world, even though chivalry has been seen as a negative word nowadays. As children, our parents have taught us to use manners when we are doing anything, saying "please" and "thank you", holding the door for a girl because, "ladies first," and many more. These uses of manners trace back to the principle of being chivalrous. The word "chivalry" has been compared to "toxic masculinity" by many people as of late, their reasoning is that they think that chivalry is implying that men need to help women because women are weak. However, that is not the case, the origins of chivalry trace back to when the Roman Empire fell, and nomads were imposing their wills on women, so many knights decided to make a code that will try and stop women from having men forced upon them and being forced to do things the women do not want to do. That is why chivalry should still be used today and needs to be taught by parents to their children.
4 - all around good answer from the details to how chivalry has changed over the years
4 - gives good examples on chivalry and how we are taught the use of it
Chivalry is just away to give some kindness back to others. Chivalry has been around since the time of knights, when it was their code of conduct to do the right thing, it had a lot to do with morels around that time. Although its been so long since the time of honer that the knights use to live in, Society today still has some form of Chivalry, it may not like the old code as some would put it with man being the only ones to do it, when today women are also seen using chivalry. In today´s society Chivalry isn't that big of a thing, Its usually just someone holding a door open, but their are some today who see Chivalry as being Sexist to women.
4 - describes how chivalry was and still is used in the present and past nicely by giving some examples
4 - gives us a past and present comparison and how it should be used today
In today's society, chivalry should still be present but, it should be modified for the modern era. People must take in to account that the old family structure is no longer relevant to everyone. There are families where no male figure is present at all so chivalry should be adopted by both sexes. Chivalry isn't an old world sexist precedent. It's now just way of being polite to all people. For example, If you enter a room with someone close behind you, open the door for them. When a person falls, help them to their feet. It doesn't matter what gender or sexual orientation you are, these small acts of civility are chivalrous and should be a part of society and daily life.
4 - does a good job describing how chivalry has changed in a way that everyone should be treated equally
4 - does a good job balancing out the argument and how everyone is different but we should all be treated the same.
Chivalry exist in our society just a bit. As a people we can tell this by seeing how the teens and young adults think now a days. This new generation is for more equality throughout everyone, this conflicts with the traditional ideas of chivalry. For example, if you were to go ask any elderly man how he is supposed to treat a women on a date he would say things like open doors, pay for the meal, if she needs a jacket give her yours, etc. But as a society, it should be the norm because it's not implying that women are the weaker sex it is showing how much a man actually cares about a date.
4 - liked his explanation of why chivalry has changed over the years
4 - good claim as he explains that the new generation hasn't been taught chivalry as well as the past.
The degree that chivlary exist today is the politeness. Respecting women by opening doors and helping carrying packages still exist today. Although it isn't as big as it used to be. Today women can defend themselves way better than they used to. Chivlary isn't as needed as it was back then. Though it is still important to keep it in some regards. Women still get hurt and injured today. As a society work still needs to be done to make live safer for women. Speaking up about the bad things is one thing that needs to be worked on. Women shouldn't be afriad to confront those who have hurt them. Chivlary doesn't need to be inforced as much as it was, but still be part of society. True gender equality hasn't been achieved yet. Chivlary should at least help take the steps towards that goal.
4 - describes how past chivalry is used in some form of modern chivalry by using details for the text
In today's society, chivalry still exists and will most likely always be around. Through it's not as common as it used to be, many people still carry these characteristics and beliefs. As time goes on there are more and more people that believe that chivalry is offensive. However, as a society, we have to understand that it isn't meant to be hurtful or disrespectful. The word originated during times when men respected women to the point where this unwritten rule was created. Nobody took offense to it as it was a code of respectfulness. Nowadays things from the past are viewed differently and many don't exist today. It should exist in today's world because it was never meant to be offensive just respectful.
4 - backs up his points with some details, but also used a little to much opinions,
In today's society, chivalry exists to the same degree as it did years and years ago. Today, it's more of and underlying form of chivalry that can be a bit more difficult to notice. For some couples, chivalry is not as prominent as it would be in a couple with a man and a woman. Chivalry should not exist because it has come from overly sexist time period and still today posses sexist overtones. Now, a simple gesture of a man opening the door for a women is kind but it can go both ways. Society thinking that the man paying for the meal is somewhat of the normal thing is partly of the reason chivalry should not exist.
4 - compared and contrasted modern and past chivalry really well with good details
In my personal thoughts I believe that chivalry is still in or world today. I also think that this depends on the type of house that you grew up i though. For me I grew up in house where my father overwhelmed my mother with respect which isn't bad at all. The author states "men and woman share equality" I am not saying that this is wrong, yes woman are more independent, but there are still acts that make chivalry still in the world today.
4 - liked how she describes how modern chivalry is adapted and used differently in different houses
Chivalry exists, in today's society, but it absolutely has become a sort of lost tradition. It seems like our society is losing the meaning of what being a gentleman is. Hopefully chivalry can make a comeback in our communities because there has been too many times that some men have treated women with incredible amounts of disrespect.
3 - good response of how chivalry has changed just could use more examples
Chivalry, to some extent, still exists in modern society today. While chivalry back then was completely different and people are becoming more and more indepedent in this era, there is still a spark of chivalry that men have. According to the article, chivalry in the earlier times was a written code on how men treated women, mainly with honor, high virtues, and courtly love. Nowadays, this past concept of chivalry is gone, but being courteous to women is still present and should aways remain to a certain degree. An example of this would be holding the door for someone, or helping them carry what that person can't. Chivalry should always exist in some form, and the way it exists today is ideal. People can be independent, but others should help each other and continue to be courteous to women, even in the slightest.
4 - really liked how he talked about chivalry is used modernly and how it was used in earlier years
