a strength is it can explain cultural differences in behaviour
another strength is less deterministic than the behaviourist approach as there is an element of free will
another strength is it showed the importance of cognitive processes when it comes to learning.

a weakness is that the theory is based of studies done only on children (e.g Bobo doll experiment). How things are learnt could potential change as we age due to a more developed schema. Adults have the ability to be more selective with what they model
another weakness is the theory is based on lab studies.

These are just some I can think of

What's good about it? What good things have happened because the theory was developed? How has the theory helped people?

What's bad about it? What bad things have happened because of it? How has the theory caused issues for people?

What about the research supporting it? Is the research reliable, valid, ethical etc.? Or is the research unethical, inapplicable and not useful?

Is the theory missing any key parts of explanation, or does it explain certain concepts well?
