SOC-320 Week 3 Trends in Dating and Mate Selection Presentation
Students need to know how to explain trends in dating and mate selection. This assignment will help you learn this skill. Search online magazine or newspaper archives and find three articles, each written in different decades (between the 1950s and now), that describe dating and mate selection issues during those decades. Citing three to five scholarly sources from the GCU library, design a PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following:
- Highlight the key information from each of the articles.
- Describe the effects of singlism.
- Identify similarities from each decade.
- Identify differences from each decade.
- Compare and contrast the dating trends in the articles to current dating and mate selection trends.
- Lastly, identify which theory of mate selection best reflects how you would choose a mate and why.
