Describe and discuss the major theories regarding psychology and gender. Include in the discussion your views of social-cognitive theory of gender development and the gender schema theory.
In your exploration of these concepts, respond to the following:
- Describe and explain at least two of the major theories.
- Compare the two theories from this week’s readings as they relate to gender.
- On the basis of your research, explain which theory you find more accurate and why. Provide details as to why you feel the way you do, supporting your response with text references and additional citations from scholarly articles.
Justify your answers with appropriate reasoning and research from your textbook and course readings. Start reviewing and responding to at least two of your classmates as early in the week as possible. You can ask technical questions or respond generally to the overall experience. Be sure to be honest, clear, and concise. Always use constructive language, even in criticism, to work toward the goal of positive progress. Using questions and seeking clarifications are good ways to make your reviews substantive!
