SECTION II (15 points)
This section focuses on Moral Development. See section 6 of chapter 8 in your textbook.
This assignment involves two moral dilemmas. Read each scenario and answer the questions listed below the dilemmas.
As Jane looked up and out of her car, she saw that she had hit a person, and that the person is not looking very good. In fact, Jane is sure that the person is dead. Jane shakily got out of her car, and looked around at the damage that had been caused. Several cars were badly smashed up, but more importantly Jane realized that she had killed someone with her careless driving.
As Jane stood back in shock, a woman came up to her with tears running down her face, and obviously very shook up. As a natural reaction, Jane asked her what was wrong. She gave Jane a funny look, and then she explained that she just ran over someone. Jane asked her where this person is, and she pointed toward the person that Jane had run over!
Jane didn’t understand why, but for some reason this woman thought that she caused this accident and killed the person, when in fact Jane was well aware that she was the cause. As the paramedics and police arrived, the shook up woman told the authorities that she killed the person, and the police did not question the women’s claim since the body was thrown next to her car. Jane told the officers that she blacked out and did not remember what happened, and then remained quiet while the other woman claimed responsibility.
Your assignment should be several (at least 5) paragraphs in length. Follow the American Psychological Association’s (APA) guidelines for writing a paper: 1 inch margins on top, bottom and both sides; 12 point font in Times New Roman, Arial, or Courier; double spaced (with no extra spaces between paragraphs), and left justified text. Write using YOUR OWN WORDS (no quotes, writing is from you alone) and make sure that your writing flows from one paragraph to another. Of course, check to make sure that your paper covers each question/concept and always proof-read your work. All this information is in your syllabus.) This assignment is worth 25 points, and will be graded on completeness, quality of content, and adherence to format requirements. Remember that points will be taken off for poor writing. See the Rubric for Written Work document at the bottom of the Bb page under Course Documents. Your writing mechanics will be corrected and you will be given two scores: one for the total points you earned and a second for the points you lost, based on your writing (clarity and logical flow, grammar and spelling errors, and sentence structure). To avoid losing any points on writing, please bring your completed assignment to the Noel Studio for Academic Creativity for help before you post it to Bb.
