Assignment 2: Reinforcement and Punishment Social learning theory postulates that gender development is influenced by social environment, which includes the media. An individual’s gender-related behavior is either reinforced or punished during the development period based on the existing social beliefs and standards. The following assignment will help you examine gender development from the perspective of both boys and girls based on today’s culture and with a look toward future trends. Using the module readings, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research social learning theory and gender development during childhood.
