This lesson includes the explanation of Kohlberg's Theory of Moral Develpment (page 2), a useful chart depicting the 3 main levels and 6 subcategories (page 1), in addition to 4 commonly used examples of Kohlberg's theory (pages 3 & 4). References and internal citations are provided.
This is a useful lesson to use with psychology students of various ability levels. They way I present it includes photocopying pages 1 and 2 back to back. I also copy pages 3 and 4 back to back. I do NOT staple thes two pages together. At the beginning of this lesson, I do not hand any papers to students; instead, I read the shipwreck problem on page 3. I have students write down what they would do and their reasoning on a black piece of paper. I write students answers on the board--on the left side of the board, I write the preconventional answers, middle of the board I write the conventional answers, and the right of the board I wright the postconventional answers. Then, I hand out page 1/2. We go over Kohlberg's theory. Then, I read the Attendance problem (page 3). We discuss as a class what would be in each of the 3 categories. Then, I read the Heinz Problem, have students write their answers on the blank piece of paper. I follow up by giving them pages 3/4.
