for Bowbly's monotropic theory of attachment, when doing an 8 marker would you talk about all of the key points like adaptive, monotropy, social releasers, critical period and IWM or would you just say a few for AO1 and evaluate the ones mentioned?

You'd need 2 or 3 evaluative points. You need to explain why they're an evaluative point, link them back to the theory, provide evidence of that, and then link to the question.

Evaluate Bowlby's theory of attachment (8 marks)
You wouldn't include any AO1 for an 'evaluate' 8 marker. Instead, write at least 2 paragraphs (50-100 word) evaluating it (AO3).
For example:

POINT: The Evolutionary Explanation, in particular the monotropy can be considered to be a socially sensitive idea.
EVIDENCE/EXAMPLE: Feminists like Erica Burman (1994) have pointed out that this places a terrible burden of responsibility on mothers, setting them up to take the blame for anything that goes wrong in the rest of their child’s life. It also pushes mothers into certain lifestyle choices like making the decision not to return to work when a child is born.
EVALUATION: This is a weakness because the theory can be seen to be unethical if it’ key assumptions are seen to negatively discriminate against women/mothers.
