You Did What? – Understanding children’s ideas of right and wrong through the prism of Staged Moral Development

Sep 26, 2014   //   by bisadmin   //   Events  //  No Comments

Understanding children’s ideas of right and wrong through the prism of Staged Moral Development. This is Jen’s talk on Kohlberg that covers a core principle to our school design and behaviour management by looking at the process that we each go through in doing the “right” or ‘wrong” thing.  Is lying ever the right thing to do? Is “good” a notion that children understand? It is an interesting talk that may challenge how you understand the way people interact and especially help you understand why kids do the things they do.

Presenter is Jen Haynes – BIS Principal

When: November 18 @   1:30pm – 3pm and    6:00pm – 7:30pm.

Where: Brisbane Independent School – 2447 Moggil Rd Pullenvale

Are you feeling disenchanted with the education system? Do you believe that the way we approach education in Australia needs to change? Perhaps you are a School Teacher who feels that there must be another way or an Early Childhood Teacher who is concerned about the disconnect of your interest based, explorative program and the primary education system.
