Instructions: Moral Development

For this assignment, you will apply either Kohlberg’s or Gilligan’s theory to a real person or fictional character of your choosing. See the example further below. Your goal is to try to determine the person’s/character’s overall motivation for their actions. Then tell us what step(s)/stage(s) you believe that person/character is in and why. Do not use cases from the textbook for this assignment. Write two paragraphs, as follows:

Paragraph 1 – Summary (150 words minimum)

If using a real person, provide the article title, link, and date of publication (within the last six months) from a reliable source. Summarize the article and the person you will be analyzing. If using a fictional character, provide a brief summary of the character.

Paragraph 2 – Application (150 words minimum)

Discuss the Kohlberg stage(s) or Gilligan step(s) your person is/was in and why. The WHY/BECAUSE should be detailed and is the most important part!

Example

Summary first and then…

I think Sherlock Holmes of Sherlock is in Kohlberg’s second stage because even though he solves crimes and saves lives he does it to benefit his own needs and his own curiosity. He continually does what is best for him without regard for those around him. He does attempt to protect Watson but I also think his motivation is to benefit himself in some way since he seems to need Watson to continue his work. He is self-motivated which is characteristic of a stage two person. Etc.
