PCN 518-0500 Week 5 Assignment - A Moral Dilemma



Use the following dilemma: A female adolescent's
parents place a low priority on the value of an education. In fact, they prefer
that she care for younger siblings instead of studying or completing a high
school education. It is March. The student has told her parents that she has
in-school suspension for the rest of the school year in order to have time to
study as she dreams of attending college one day. Questions: Is the student
making the right choice in deceiving her parents? Why or why not?

 

Write an essay of 250-500 words in which you
summarize your analysis.

 

1.      Construct
a matrix that corresponds to the six stages of Kohlberg's theory of moral
dilemma and, for each stage, justify your rationale as to why the student is
making the right choice and why she is making the wrong choice.

 

2.      Make
sure you include both an affirmative and negative response to each of the six
stages.

 

3.      Ensure
that your rational for each stage is adequately discussed.

 

4.      Both
the matrix and the essay should be submitted together under one APA-style title
page.

 

Prepare this assignment according to the APA
guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
An abstract is not required.
