Suggested Responses: Students should describe these authors' theories accurately. Emphasis should be placed on the notion that moral development is cognitive in nature. A discussion of the progression of moral arguments with age should be provided. A very good answer might include the names of Piaget's or Kohlberg's stages. Students should explain that Piaget would describe typical primary children as being in the "moral realism" stage, in which moral decisions are based on fixed rules. Kohlberg would expect children of this age to be in his "preconventional" stage, in which they base more decisions on what will lead to reward and not punishment. Students should describe critiques of Kohlberg's work, such as the idea that it reflects the value of White, middle- or upper-class males and that his moral dilemmas fail to account for moral ambiguity or alternate solutions.
