Kohlberg Theory of Moral Reasoning Paper
Kohlberg Theory of Moral Reasoning Paper
Interview a person of your choice (they may be your parents, relatives, or friends) using the questions approved by your instructor. These questions must address the following:

Cognitive, physical, and psychosocial development during the interviewee’s adolescence
How peers influenced the interviewee during adolescence
What people and/or events influenced the interviewee’s development of morals
How the interviewee’s experiences as an adolescent formulate who they are as an adult.

Note: American Psychological Association (APA) ethical guidelines indicate that interviewees have the right to refuse to answer any question posed to them by an interviewer. Please ensure that your interviewees are aware of this, and do not force them to answer where the opportunity to reply has been refused.
Pick one of the theories reviewed in chapters 16 and 17 of the text.
Write a paper of 750-1,000 words, discussing the selected theory and how it relates to your interview. Include the following in your paper:

A description of the selected theory
A description of your interviewee (gender, age, ethnicity, etc.)
How the interviewee’s responses illustrate the selected theory. Support your response with examples.

Include at least three scholarly references, in addition to the text, in your paper.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is required.
Please see the format below:

Title page
Abstract page (An abstract is a quick summary of the entire paper. It is not an introduction.)
Introduction with thesis
Body paragraph #1 (Describe your chosen theory. Be thorough and be sure to focus on the specifics of the theory that relate to adolescence because that is the focus of this paper)
Body paragraph #2 (Describe your interviewee)
Body paragraph #3 (Connect your interview and the responses to the chosen theory)
References page

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
