PSYC100 week4 question

Need help with my Psychology question – I’m studying for my class.

Q1:

Discussion Points are awarded for comments that · reflect that you have read the required text and readings · that you have prepared the discussion questions in advance · that you have thought about the content · that you have attempted to understand the readings · and that you are able to apply the content to “real life.” In other words, quality comments reflect effort, accuracy, and thoroughness. If you do not understand the material, you can still earn participation points by demonstrating that you have made an effort to understand the material and that you have read the text. Trying to struggle with and figure out the information merits points. I expect you to make posts that directly address all parts of the discussion questions as well as respond to others’ postings. Points awarded for responses to others’ postings will be awarded using the same criteria as original posts (see above, see syllabus).

You will not earn points for posts/replies that do not meet the above criteria or for posts/replies that simply reflect information from your personal life without incorporating specific concepts and understanding of the chapter.

Your reply should focus on enhancing your peer’s discussion and not on the organization or if you enjoyed reading it. This can be mentioned but should not be the focus. Further, you will not earn points by simply stating that you agree or disagree with a classmate without fully supporting your opinion with concepts from the course material. Your peer response must enhance your peer’s post while incorporating concepts from the course material directly related to the discussion question.

Please review the discussion board guidelines.

Post 1: What was the most challenging part of the chapter for you to grasp?

Post 2 & 3: Select 2 of the 4 following topics to cover in your discussion

Discussion A) 2 1/2 year-old brother

  • Your younger brother is 2 ½ years old. You are trying to teach him some new words. Using Piagetian ideas like assimilation and accommodation, what approach would you take and what would you expect to happen. Give some examples of words you would teach him and how you would do it. Describe the achievements and limitations of your brother’s stage of cognitive development.

Discussion B) Moral Dilemma (addressing parts 1 and 2)

  • Lawrence Kohlberg studied moral development by presenting a series of moral dilemmas like the one below. He was more interested in the reasons for participants responses than whether behavior was judged right or wrong. Read the moral dilemma below and answer the questions that follow.“In Europe, a woman was near death from a special kind of cancer. There was one drug the doctors thought might save her. It was a form of radium that a druggist in the same town had recently discovered. The drug was expensive to make, and the druggist was charging ten times what it cost him. He paid $200 for the radium and charged $2000 for a small dose of the drug. The sick woman’s husband, Heinz, went to everyone he knew to borrow the money, but he could only get together $1000, which was half of what the drug cost. He told the druggist that his wife was dying and asked him to sell it cheaper or let him pay later. But the druggist said, “No, I discovered the drug, and I am going to make money from it”. So Heinz got desperate and broke into the man’s store to steal the drug for his wife (Colby, et al., 1983, pp.77).”
    • 1. What moral judgment would you make about the dilemma? Should Heinze have stolen the drug? Why or why not?
    • Based on the research using moral dilemma like that presented above Lawrence Kohlberg then classified the development of moral behavior into three levels with each level having two stages. He noted that people progress one stage at a time. Below is a figure of Kohlber’s stage theory. Kohlberg's stage theory

After reviewing the stages in your textbook address the following question.

  • 2. During a game of “hide and seek,” your brother breaks a dish. He tries to hide it from you by putting it under the cushion of the couch. When you find it, he tries to deny that he did it and then he starts crying and says he is scared of getting in trouble. Describe his stage and level of moral development according to Lawrence Kohlberg. Describe a hypothetical response he might give if he were in either of the other two levels (indicate which level and why he responded that way).

Discussion C) Psychosocial stage
