§How do lesbians and gay men fare? 2.What theory the author is using (if any) a.Is this a theory we’ve seen before? b.If not what does this new theory say about sex, sexuality, orientation, etc.? c.How does it contribute to the discussions/debates? 3.What were the chapter/article’s major conclusions? a.If you can summarize these in your own words, you will do great on Monday! 4.Did the author discuss any limitations in the study? 5.Who are they and their research in dialogue with? a.Is the chapter responding to a debate we have been discussing? If so which one? b.What is the key distinction between this chapter/article/study and the one it’s responding to? c.What are the most important findings that make this research/article/chapter memorable (in the context of where we are currently in this class)? Author 1 Author 2 Author 3 ...........You get the point... add as many cells as you have authors What did they set out to do in their research? (what were their goals?) Who influenced their work? (if it was mentioned in class) What perspective/theory are they working from?
Who are they and their research in dialogue with? What is the major finding here? Are there limitations in the study? Etc. Study Tip #3: Know your stuff:YES, this time we are interested in specific statistics when they convey something important in the behaviors of specific populations, sexual orientations, groups, etc. If trends are offered as part of lecture, it’s because they are important findings and you should understand how they shape the debate in that area of sex research. We will not ask you to remember dates. But after reading a chapter, you should have a sense of who this author was and what they had to say. Also, be sure to pay close attention to concepts that were mentioned in the texts but not in lecture, and vice versa. We trust that you’re reading the material assigned in the syllabus. Woe to you if we’re wrong. For the exam itself: Read questions carefully. Some of you come to office hours and demonstrate your knowledge of the material, and yet have a hard time with the exams/quizzes. This could be an indication that you’re rushing through the exam.
