  • 9. MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF PEOPLE WERE USED… …AND THEY WERE GAINED USING DIFFERENT SAMPLING TECHNIQUES
  • 10. Describe evidence, Evaluate using A02 Evaluate using good IDA
  • 11. In all 37 samples men rated good looks in their mate more than women In all 37 samples males and females preferred the male to be older In 36/37 samples women rated good financial prospects higher than men did

  • 15. Research the following studies and complete the evaluation grid: 1) Buss (1989) 2) Clarke & Hatfield (1989) 3) Dunbar and Waynforth (1995) 4) Penton-Voak et al (1999) – Menstrual Cycle Describe evidence, Evaluate using A02 Evaluate using good IDA
  • 16.  Now consider the following questions and write out your answers/ideas…  1) How does Miller et al (2007) provide support for the importance of fertility in his study of lap dancers?  2) In Buss’ study, men showed a distinct preference for younger women. It was suggested that this was because youth was an indicator of fertility. However are there any other explanations for a male preference for younger mates?  3) What is the problem of Homosexuality for this theory?  4) What is the problem of Contraception for this theory? Describe evidence, Evaluate using A02 Evaluate using good IDA
  • 17. 1) How could this explanation be gender biased? (Can a man be sexually promiscuous without willing females?) 2) Wilson: „evolutionary psychology simply points out the genes are a strong guide to our behaviour.‟ Does this suggest nature or nurture? Determinism or free will? 3) BUT Honeybourne, considered that evolutionary psychology was a from of biological Calvinism whereby your genetics acted as a deterministic factor. Your genes preset all of your behaviour, disregarding the role of free will. 4) Rose, a prominent critic of evolutionary psychology, has argued that it is too concerned with the past and thus presents a “Flinstone‟s View” of mankind. What could this mean? Describe evidence, Evaluate using A02 Evaluate using good IDA
  • 18. What might the following psychologists say about sexual selection as an approach to relationships? Pavlov Describe evidence, Freud Evaluate using A02 Evaluate using good IDA
  • 19. Create a PEEL for one Point of Sexual Selection as a theory of relationships…. POINT EVIDENCE Make your point. Look at with Support itthe mark scheme for research. psychological a 24 marker and answer the questions.. EXPLAIN LINK Describe evidence, Explain what the research shows or suggests. Link it back to your point or the question. Evaluate using A02 Evaluate using good IDA
  • 20. Imagine you were another psychologist looking at the theory of Sexual Selection and it’s influence on relationships. You want to weigh up the pro’s and con’s. Consider what we have learned and write a passage evaluating Sexual Selection as a theory of relationships. Consider: 1) Evidence 2) A02 3) IDA (Synoptic A02) 4) Comparisons with other theories/approaches. Describe evidence, Evaluate using A02 Evaluate using good IDA
  • 21. Discuss the relationship between sexual selection and human reproductive behaviour. (A01 = 8 A02/A03 = 16) Due in one week today! Describe evidence, Evaluate using A02 Evaluate using good IDA
  • 22. 1) Heading: Today’s Date, Unit & Topic 2) Write a summary of your learning today in less than 100 words.
