Actually, this, instead of my previous lesson, might be my most controversial lesson, since it addresses one of the big questions of the day: are the differences between men and women more the result of nature or nurture? Recent research on the structure of men's and women's brains strongly suggests that nature plays at least some role that probably goes back to our early evolution.
By no means am I suggesting here that biology is destiny. However, it would be intellectually dishonest and dangerous to just ignore what scientific research is finding.
This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. This packet also contains a student reading and flowchart.
NOTE: I’m in the process of converting all the Powerpoints to a new color scheme over the next year. If I haven’t converted this Powerpoint to the new color scheme, I’ve included the whole flowchart in the newer color scheme on the second slide, so you can convert the other slides. Also, if you buy the old version now, you can e-mail.me so I can give you the updated version when it’s ready, free of charge.
