The Bandura Bobo Doll experiment

Watch the video about Albert Bandura’s Bobo Doll Experiement.  Respond to the following questions and then reply to at least two different students in our class:

1.  What theory of aggression does the video demonstrate?  Briefly, explain this theory (based on what our textbook states/give us a page number).

2.  What did Bandura do (differently) in the second experiment he designed?  What were the results compared to the Bobo Doll experiment?

3.  What other areas of contemporary life are ripe for this type of aggression development (i.e. T.V., family life, etc)?  Share some examples and explain how this could influence the development of aggressive tendencies (or aggression in general).

4. Any lasting impressions, thoughts, feelings in regards to Bandura’s experiments in this video?
