Your task this week will be to debate different theories of gender development.
To do this, submit a transcript of a mock debate (or one that you may have overheard) between two psychologists who have primary interest in gender development but belong to different schools of thought, and show the two viewpoints. You can use any two perspectives you are interested in. Remember that social scientists love to talk about their subject; they rarely answer questions with yes/no answers. And they tend to interrupt each other to prove their point.
The transcript could look something like this:
Discussion Moderator introduces the speakers.
Answer Dr. X: …
Answer Prof. Y: …
Interaction between scientists if warranted
Moderator will conclude a discussion with giving the summary of the theories discussed.
Be sure to have a minimum of 5 questions that are in the debate. The transcript should conclude with a brief reflection of your own take on the topic discussed.
Length: 5-7 pages
References: Include a minimum of 5 scholarly resources
Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
