Susan Stalte Composition 108 Professor Froggatt November 28, 2011 Hymowitz, Kay S. "Tweens: Ten Going on Sixteen." The Longman Writer: Rhetoric, Reader, Research Guide, and Handbook . 8 th Ed. Boston: Longman, 2011. 212- 216. Print. O'Donnell, Â Jennifer. "Tween - Definition of Tween." Parenting Tweens. N.p., n.d. Web. 14 Nov. 2011. <http://tweenparenting.about.com/od/tweenculture/g/TweenDefinition.htm>. Summary Kay S. Hymowitz is a Philadelphian native known for her writing on education and childhood in America. She is a contributing editor of the urban policy magazine City Journal , and also senior member of the Manhattan Institute. As well as being an English literature and composition teacher for Brooklyn College and Parsons School of Design, her work as appeared in several major writing publications, including: The New York Times , Washington Post , and The New Republic . The point of the author’s article, Tweens: Ten Going on Sixteen , is to discuss childhood being pushed aside, as young children cover up their youthful past and aspire to act, dress, and look older than they actually are. With that said, the phrase ‘tween’ is a main focus of the writing piece. A ‘tween’ is defined as “…a child between the ages of 9-12…[who is] no longer a child, but not quite a teenager” (O’Donnell, A Jennifer). Furthermore, the ‘extinction’ of preadolescence is an upcoming phenomenon in today’s younger generation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
