Help me study for my Psychology class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.
I have provided 2 options for this wiki on Gender and Gender Role Development. Both focus on traditional gender roles: masculinity and femininity. CHOOSE ONE option for this Wiki.
OPTION 1: Toxic Masculinity
Read an overview of “toxic masculinity” from the website of the American Psychological Association (APA). The APA sets the tone for all things “psychology” in the U.S., so I believe this resource will present you with an evidence-based (empirical, research-based) discussion of this topic.
For this wiki, READ this summary article: apa.org-APA issues first-ever guidelines for practice with men and boys.pdf
After reading the article, write a short paragraph with your thoughts (positive as well as negative) about the phenomenon they are describing and any solutions they may offer to begin to change our expectations of what it means to be male in our society. (If you want to dig deeper, here is a link to the full report (fair warning, it is very long. But if you want to FULL background on how the APA has come to the conclusions about masculinity that they have, this document spells it out fully):

Teach Girls Bravery, Not Perfection (click link to go to the TED talk)
oWe’re raising our girls to be perfect, and we’re raising our boys to be brave, says Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code. Saujani has taken up the charge to socialize young girls to take risks and learn to program — two skills they need to move society forward. To truly innovate, we cannot leave behind half of our population, she says. “I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection.”
After viewing this short video (about 15 mins), write a brief reflection on YOUR gender develop. Do the ideas presented in the video ring true for you? Was your experience learning your gender and gender role similar or different from that discussed in the video? Modules 10, 11, 12 discuss some of the BIOLOGICAL (nature) and ENVIRONMENTAL/SOCIAL (nurture) influences on our individual gender development. How have biological and environmental factors influenced your gender development? NO NAMES NECESSARY. But please change your font color to help your post stand out from the rest. Thank you!
