Bullying students as an act of intimidation may result to repulsive action from the students in a learning situation. This may affect the learning ability of such students and later reduce class attendance due to truancy. Teaching environment should be motivational either in a rural or urban area.

One of my research hypothesis is:
There is a positive relationship between General bullying victimization and Social Media Use (SMU). The relationship between Cyberbullying victimization and SMU is stronger than between Traditional Bullying victimization and SMU.
Scaling:
Social Media Use:
0 = never
1 = rarely
2 = often
3 = very often
--> in my opinion this is an ordinal scale
Traditional Bullying Victimization and Cyberbullying Victimizations are Sum Scores. Also metric variables.

Dear friends
One thing I noted in academia is that competition can sometimes be just as fierce as in the world of business.
Sometimes it can be small and petty like who should be first author, often triggered by purely selfish reasons and following justifications.
In other cases competition can be about grands, effectively rendering someone unemployed in some cases. I have seen bullying, discrimination more frequently than in the world of business, the place I come from.
This is truly the dark side of academia, there are also positive things but these are things that make me sick to my stomach.
What is your experience? Do you agree with my rather dark view? If not, why? If yes, how can we fix it?

I'm working on a research proposal paper for my Senior Seminar in Psychology course, and I am unsure which statistical model to use. My research question is whether victims of workplace cyberbullying have higher absenteeism rates than employees who do not experience cyberbullying. My proposed hypothetical study will utilize a cross-sectional self-reported survey methodology. I believe Pearson's r would be appropriate to analyze the data, but I'm not sure.
Relevant answer
Answer
This will depend on how your variables are calculated - namely, whether they are categorical or continuous.
Pearson correlations are good when both variables are continuous. This would mean that workplace bullying is measured continuously, perhaps based on frequency of bullying occurrences; and absenteeism rates are measured by the number of days missed at work.
Chi-Square is best if you have two categorical variables. A possible way of having this work with your variables would be to have workplace bullying as a dichotomous yes/no answer, or having absenteeism as a yes/no. You can also choose more categories for these variables although a chi-square analysis becomes more difficult to interpret once you have 4-5+ categories.
Based on your variables, I think having these both measured continuously may be best. Your sample size will also be important to consider with regards to the Power needed for these analyses. Alternatively, you can also look into t-tests if you want to have a single continuous (i.e., absenteeism days) and a single categorical (i.e., workplace bullying, yes/no) variable.

It is common that we have significantly contributed to writing general reports (e.g. WHO reports) that are expected to result in several papers afterwards. This has especially been the case during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Afterwards, there are two scenarios:

2) You stop contributing after the report is delivered and another team writes the papers.

Revenge, AT THE MARGIN OF THE SITE OR PLACE WHERE IT IS FROM, IS ALWAYS VENGEANCE, since it is aggressive conduct (of whatever type and implicit or explicit) that is neither classified nor classified by where it occurs; Well, revenge is retaliation against a person or group in response to an injury received (or perceived as such) is something innate in the human being and appears in all kinds of cultures, places and historical moments.
Another thing is that such revenge is translated into an assumption of MOBBING, but -in this case- it is already typified as said mobbing and not as revenge.

This study examines the behavioural, individual and contextual variables that are expected to impact the perceived severity of workplace bullying behaviour. It also identifies the toxic behaviour involved in interacting with workplace bullying for the employees at AlHakim General Hospital in Iraq. Thus, to find the psychological symptoms associated with the related behaviours, the Brief Symptom Inventory (BSI) was used. Based on the analysis, the findings indicated that the severity and classification of workplace bullying behaviours had been influenced by the toxic behaviours involved through the characteristics of the employee who is subjected to those behaviours. The analysis conducted in this research also indicated that the behaviours that were personally harnessed from the corresponding target were more severe and frequent than other categories of behaviour. Finally, having an appropriate organisational system is of great importance to guarantee high performance in the organisation

Answer
It is known as intimidation or harassment (known in English as bullying if it is in the school environment; in the workplace it would be mobbing; but it can also be through telematic means -cyberbullying- and a wide etcetera) when a person or group repeatedly hurts someone on purpose. It can be physical, social and / or verbal. It is always harmful to both victims and stalkers, and it always involves aggressive behavior.
Criminally - since, at least in the European Union it is classified as a crime - the Spanish Supreme Court typifies it saying that "The Supreme Court defines intimidation by stating that" it is constituted by the announcement of an immediate, serious, personal and possible evil that it awakens or inspires in the offended person a feeling of fear, anguish or unease in the face of the contingency of real or imaginary damage ".

Dear all,
I wrote my bachelor's thesis. The topic is whether social support by a best friend moderates (mitigates) the relationship between bullying and emotional problems in primary school children.
For the first hypothesis (bullied children have more emotional problems than non-bullied) I performed an independent samples t-test (one-tailed).
However, for my second analysis - I did a moderation analysis using PROCESS macro (controlling for gender differences). I did not find a moderation of social support by a best friend and as recommended by Hayes (2018), if there is no moderation, you should do a regression without the interaction term. Thus, I did a hierarchical regression without the interaction term. I found that bullying has no effect on emotional problems anymore.
How can I explain that in the t-test bullying had an effect on emotional problems but not anymore in the hierarchical regression?
A post-hoc power analysis showed that my moderation analysis had a very high power of 0.98, thus type-II error is very low.
A preliminary t-test also showed that bullying had an effect on social support (bullied students had fewer social support than non-bullied students).

Answer
When there is no Significance interaction it means there is no moderation or that moderator does not play any interaction on the variables in question. However this doesn't mean in practice there isn't any interaction

In one of our latest works: Bullying In Primary And Secondary School In The View Of University Students, we have seen how bullying is one of the most serious problems in education and one of the most serious problems in the education system today. It affects almost all students, whether they are bullies, victims of bullying, or bystanders. But it also has a major effect on teaching staff, the schools themselves, and the education system. The results of our research showed that men tend to be bullies to a greater extent than women, and no relationship was found between gender and being a victim of bullying. Furthermore, it was found that almost two out of three students have experienced bullying during these stages of education and that almost all students (nine out of ten) have seen bullying episodes.

The Einstein Rocketship explained to Young and Old
Otto E. Rossler
Faculty of Science, University of Tuebingen, 72076 Tuebingen, Germany
Abstract: Popular talk given at the Nell-Breuning Highschool in Rottweil on January 12, 2016
***
It is fun to picture this most beautiful brainchild of a scientist who always called it “the happiest thought of my life.” What is it that is so “happy” about it? Can a thought be happy?
It is maximally simple and yet maximally absurd in its consequences. Such a coincidence is unprecedented. This lad was a gift to the planet.
Just embark on an Apollo-like rocketship in your mind. Unlike the real one, it is not filled with propellant throughout: In the middle it has a narrow passenger cabin that runs along the whole length and width of the ship. Therefore you can make simple experiments on board if you brought along your pocket laser-pointer and a pocket frequency counter. Thirdly, you may bring along a smoke-filled glass tube through which to send a laser pulse while the tube lies on the floor or is glued to the ceiling, so as to take snapshots of an internally advancing light pulse from above or below. The ship is assumed to be accelerating constantly in outer space while you make the measurements.
The same equipment (pointer, counter and tube) you can also use inside a huge church tower on earth, with predictably the same measurement results. The experiment is so simple that “mere thinking” suffices to make valid predictions. This is what Einstein did in 1907 with all the mentioned equipment not being available as of yet.
The least surprising prediction is that, when you hold the laser pointer horizontally at any height inside the accelerating rocketship, the horizontal light ray that comes out will be gently downward-curved inside the accelerating rocketship. This effect is very small since the rocketship is so slender. Moreover, von Soldner had already predicted gravitational light bending a century before in 1804.
The most famous surprise found by Einstein is the following: When the laser is pointing upwards from the floor and you count the pulses at the tip, the counter will show a reduced ticking rate compared to what is valid on the bottom – despite the maintained distance. For during the time the light is ascending with its limited universal velocity c, the tip did continue picking up speed away from the emission point. Hence a Doppler effect applies, like the slowed pitch of a receding ambulance.
This was Einstein’s main prediction. It appeared totally absurd at the time. Nonetheless Einstein’s “gravitational redshift” is confirmed everyday by the GPS in our cars. The satellites overhead make for the ceiling of a rather high church tower indeed (their fast motion does not abolish the effect).
Pointing the laser downwards from the tip will show the opposite effect – an increase in the count rate compared to what holds true above when measuring downstairs.
What else can we do with this mental or real toy? The second big implication seen by Einstein applies when the tube with the smoke in it is lying on the bottom while watched from the tip. Einstein predicted correctly that the light speed inside will look reduced from above: A second absurd prediction made out of the blue by sheer thinking. And when you look from the bottom up to the ceiling, the transversal speed of light will look increased there (a fact that remained unmentioned).
The correctly predicted observable change in c caused Einstein to fall silent on gravitation for almost 4 years. For the theory of special relativity with its by definition globally constant c had produced an implication that amounts to a contradiction-in-terms. This illogical state of affairs is still the accepted teaching of to date. I hope you did enjoy the ride. But: is there not something missing here?
When staring a bit longer into the Einstein-Apollo-rocket, we may suddenly realize that the light ray, while visibly “creeping” across the floor (or else visibly “zipping” across the ceiling), is not moving horizontally as this was assumed so far. The tilt – an upwards tilt in either case – is owed to the fact that when the propagating light ray reaches the next spot on the horizontal floor, the previous point has already fallen back a bit relative to the tip in the meantime (or else has come somewhat closer to the bottom from above, respectively). Hence the no longer horizontal light ray has re-gained in either case the universal speed c – as originally presupposed.
At this point, an encouragement from the part of the reader or listener is vital because the relative upwards slant seen is not part of the narrative since 1907. Can Einstein have possibly overlooked this detail?
The Virtual-Reality-like thoughts described – which hopefully will soon be part of a computer game – were so taxing for Einstein that they “singed” his brain as he once confessed. He feared to go crazy and looked for mental shelter from his longtime friend,, mathematician Marcel Grossmann, in order to continue functioning. Everyone knows that the most difficult dynamical equation of history would come out eventually: the Einstein field equation. Does that equation contain the “relative upwards slant” proportional to vertical distance that we just spotted jointly? The answer is in the negative.
But the present playful text is supposed to be a kindergarten version of Einstein’s equivalence principle between gravity and ordinary acceleration, is it not? Virtually all specialists (except Wolfgang Rindler) scoff at texts without equations: Can it be that the mathematically educated establishment has gone astray for so long?
“Thinking helps” according to Hewlett-Packard. The new “relative upwards slant” of light rays hugging the horizontal floor inside the Einstein rocketship, valid relative to above (or below), repairs the so far accepted violation of c as a global constant of nature in the vacuum. A well-known result from special relativity – that the speed of light inside a transversally receding light tube appears reduced (or increased if approaching) was overlooked. So everything is fine again: c remains a globally (and not just locally) valid constant of nature in a return to the pre-1911 Einstein.
Why be hesitant? The reader will be appalled to realize that the retrieved global c entails that the cosmos cannot expand any more since distant points can no longer recede from each other at more than c as everyone believes does occur. By denying the Big Bang you will make yourself a laughingstock among your peers when you tell them that you approve of the above “mental analog computer” of the Einstein-Apollo rocketship. So you will have to decide whether rather to trust your own firm judgment or let yourself be bullied into behaving like a dogmatist. In science and elsewhere, dogmas have a knack for being deadly. Therefore: Is the above conclusion (“relative upwards slant”) correct or is it not?
I for one am sure 99 percent of the time that it is correct. One reason to remain skeptical is the fact that it is such an immense fun to be more right than 3 ½ generations of specialists from the year 1911 on. This feeling, if legitimate, is accompanied by an immense gratitude to this young amateur scientist of 1907 who took on the whole establishment with the verve of a total outsider. I need not tell you that at present, the scientific community is gladly betting the planet on the above story being false. But this is another tale. Thank you for having lent me your ear, my young colleagues, gentlegirls and gentlemen.

Some of our friends or colleague give an assignments a lot to the students, because they want their students learn some thing beyond the students capability. Its bullying in education or what??
Relevant answer
Answer
The main purpose of assignments is to increase the learning capabilities of students. The more we use our brains, the more they develop. This is a proven scientific fact and this is the principle behind giving extremely creative and involving assignments to the students. Students learn a lot more when they read or practice something by themselves.

Recently, collective bullying by a veteran teacher was conducted for a young teacher in Kobe in Japan. This is a big problem, and every time I watch TV and Internet news, I feel sad. In Tokyo, the recruitment ratio for elementary school teachers is 1.1 times, and it is expected to drop further. I am worried that the Japanese education system will be destroyed by the Deterioration of teacher quality. Such a problem will influence Japan and other countries in the near future. I hope any comment which is useful for children.

People are being tracked with their data in every possible manner.
This has led to nations/states using data to discriminate, bully, and condemn citizens and used as a means to pre-judge, punish and cutoff citizens from access to all of the benefits of citizenship. China currently uses a "Social Scoring system ", a manipulative and coercive attack on society to force homogenization and brainwashed acceptance of standards set by corrupt people who are in power.
This, in turn, makes the discriminated people become prisoners against their will and for arbitrary purposes with no rational or legal process. It also makes them to be slaves, economically and physically.
Is it just for other humanity to sit idle and observe this form of Hitlerism, or should all forms of Social Scoring be called out as violations 9f human rights.
For the record, I clearly view this as as an animalistic manipulation against human rights and condemn China and all others who use a social scoring system to abuse humanity. It is shameful, globally illegal and a violation of human rights.

I do not find it to be a dying of whiteness. I find it to be an arrogance of elitism.
Society is damaged when humanists allow their ego to lull them into thinking that they are more worthy than any other human being, and they often use cloaks such as standardized intelligence tests, family pedigree, educational level to hide behind as they suggest that the world is filled with the "more worthy"( which seems to inevitability include themselves) and "others".
Elitism is not racial, although in general, due to racism in society, it is perhaps seen more in certain races. Athletic racism, educational racism, music racism- they all exist and each benefits different colored skin.
Elitism is different than a diminished "whiteness". Elitism is a non-racial attitude of self centered existence being given superiority to humanitarian equality.
Elitism is found in science, education, government, and virtually all aspects of society and it is more destructive than any other form of separation of classes of people.
The highest crimes have been committed by the most highly educated, pedigree'd people, and have inflicted death, destruction and war on innocent human beings that were non-deserving of such elitist destructive forces.
Elitism, not diminished "whiteness", is the destructive variable. It is a destructive ego trapped in an average human that is fearful of being viewed as anything short of exceptional. Some call it delusional.

Dear all,
Everyone of us would have come across bullying of any form in scientific research. We may have met them during our preliminary researches, or during doctoral research or while working for an organization. Some straightaway harass us while some "self proclaimed experts" keep harassing us with their "expert knowledge", which half the time is not found to be accurate. Of late, in scientific platforms such as Research gate, there happen to be bullies whose approaches are very condescending. The purpose of such forums are to enable researchers all over the world to help one another by providing advises. In the ever-growing field of science, scenarios keep changing frequently, and so do methodologies and approaches. Every researcher thinks twice before he offers an advise to another; however discernful people trying to bully other researchers is a point of concern. Rg bullying is just another example. Ignoring such bullies, further makes them fall under the impression that they are experts of their domain. In general, how do we deal with such people?

There are bullies at all levels in academia and one has to learn to live with then, and ignore them when possible. I have faced bullying while I was a student and also at work. I still remember when early into my PhD, my supervisor advised me to consult a senior professor. She read my proposal and literally threw it on my face claiming that it was worthless, childish and would not even find a sentence out of it printed even in a crappy journal.I hastily retreated and never talked about my work to her after that. I went ahead with my proposal (My supervisor stood by me) and now after a PhD under my belt and two top class publications from that 'crap' thesis later, I wonder what would have happened if I had taken her rebuke to my heart, become demoralized and called it quits. Fortunately, I didn't. I guess bullies are best ignored since they are weak and suffer from inferiority complex while believing that they are superior to everyone.

Indeed there do appear to be significant differences between equality/diversity/inclusion policies and what happens in practice. I'd suggest that there is a need for participatory methods of involvement in how communities (schools, peers, employers, etc) create equality/diversity/inclusion in action - lived experiences because these principles are understood.
This is also a little mind blowing for adults to get their head round - how are we going to help our kids and young people?

I am interested in carrying out an ANCOVA with a categorical covariate.

How can I run this is SPSS? Or, is there another analysis I can use?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello Steph,
If the categorical covariate has only two levels, then you could just enter it as a covariate with a (0,1) or (1,2) coding. Covariates only influence analysis results to the degree that: (a) scores on the covariate relate to scores on the DV; (b) comparison groups differ on the covariate. If neither condition is present, the covariate doesn't make any difference (except for drawing away 1 df from the error term).
There is literature to suggest that building the variable into the design as another factor (also referred to as a blocking variable) may work better if the correlation between the covariate and DV is low.
Good luck with your work!

The answer depends on organizational make-up. My research has centered around police organizations where there is a strictly enforced hierarchy. Remember, power tends to corrupt. Also, as Zimbardo noted, there appears to be a tendency toward corruption with immense power and little or no supervision by which it is counteracted. We found the same thing in police organizations. The amount of oversight of the person(s) who is/are at the top of the hierarchy appears to directly determine the degree to which these behaviors flourish within an organization.
Other researchers have found similar traits in law enforcement organizations. Some use the term Machiavellian and others toxic. But we have found that not all toxic leaders are Machiavellianesque, and not all employees experience the same level of toxicity. I’ve used the term Baboon (Baboon Syndrome) as a reference to social behavior of baboon troops in Africa. They are an uncanny model of military and police organizational structure.
The thing to keep in mind is that guy or gal at the top makes the rules. S/he determines what and how disciplinary processes are applied and to whom. S/he determines punishments as well. The hallmark of the baboon-like leader is targeting behaviors toward a subordinate. If you are that subordinate, the sooner you get out the less damage you will experience to your psyche and your professional reputation.

There is always a lot of confusion and negative reaction when I discuss female intrasexual competition with lay people, especially women. Many feel the "female" is unnecessary and sexist or that it reduces all female disagreement down to the fight for mates. When I try to explain that the "sex" in intrasexual is a noun not a verb this rarely helps. There seems to be a taboo to even discussing female competition - even just admitting it exists. Women generally view it as negative even though competition can be healthy and is essential for cooperation. Understanding the mechanisms and anatomy of fic will also help women and girls by enabling us to target female bullying in schools and other institutions, where at the moment it flies under the radar.
I've been reading some research lately which differentiates FIC with female social competition (fsc) and discusses the pros and cons of using the different terms: fic for competition for mates and fsc for social competition. I'm not sure I see the utility as both are competition for fitness enhancing resources - BUT I also see substantial resistance by women in even discussing FIC at all.

I do not have much to contribute, but I support the idea of honestly and scientifically dissecting the biologic-psychologic-social feelings and forces which guide not only human behavior in good and bad, but guide also the way how every child develops psychologically and socially.
I am in favor of the model Homo sapiens socialis or sovieticus, which means that human nature is not that what we see now.
But it evolves to better in the absence of poverty, wars, bullying in schools etc etc.
And not only naturally, but also by the help of human sciences which find more and more details and mechanisms which can direct humans to evolve to better or worse and offer models of intervention to be tested scientifically.
FIC versus FSC seems a valid scientific concept.
You can promote it by Your fellow female researchers that even if the major social problems like wars are more attributable to men's animal level behavior, there is no reason to why not to do research also on girls' very basic feelings and their role for training better educators and parents.

Kelly Randall Creecy I need to start with asking what you know about action research. Do you want to use an action research strategy to work with bullying? The key question for me in action research is: How can I/we improve what we are doing? (Whitehead and McNiff 2009 - from the book "Doing and Writing Action Research"). A basic definition of action research is the one by
Peter Reason og Hilary Bradbury. This is what they call i a working definition (2001, p. 1 - from the first issue og the journal "Action Research"):
Action research is a participatory, democratic process concerned with developing practical knowing in the pursuit of worthwhile human purposes, grounded in a participatory worldview which we believe is emerging at this historical moment. It seeks to bring together action and reflection, theory and practice, in participation with others, in the pursuit of practical solutions to issues of pressing concern to people, and more generally the flourishing of individual persons and their communities.
In practical terms that means facilitating collaboration with relevant groups (It can be the teachers, the pupils, the parents, all above ...) and asking them: What is the situation at hand? What is our concern? What do we want to improve? What can we do to improve the situation? What is each and every one of us willing to commit to do to improve the situation? I can also recommend a book written by Olav Eikeland "The Ways of Aristotle" were important parts of thinking and doing action research are explored and explaned.

From my viewpoint, the EIC is emotional and immature and also has internal insecurity.

Just would it be the best solution not to submit my papers to the journal?

Answer
This has happened to me on a few occasions - especially with editors who want things changed, added or deleted I strongly feel obscure or miss the key points. I've been a senior editor several times and have noticed more than a few editor colleagues don't really understand their roles, and, often abuse their powers (and can be quite childish or insidiously political and competitive for a wide spectrum of personal reasons). My apologies you're facing these obstacles. When I face these things, I'm usually patient and diplomatic... for awhile. But if an impasse is evident and no alternatives are readily apparent, my colleagues and I generally just pull the piece, write a clear letter explaining the inherent problems [diplomatically but candid and firm enough, with some key but fair quotations from communique], and submit the article elsewhere. You can try asking if someone else at the journal can work with you... but if the senior editor has an authoritarian and influential position vis-a-vis others on the staff, it can be just as difficult. However, don't be afraid to put your foot down. Don't be intimidated. Personally, I have appreciated it when submitters have occasionally needed to enlightened me and correct my misinterpretations, etc. Hope this helps.

Dear all,
There are many schools that launch projects to reduce students' misconduct and unethical behaviours (plagiarism, cheating on examinations, bullying...) based on the new insights supplied by behavioral ethics. 
However I was wondering whether there are evidences showing that promoting ethical conduct among students is beneficial for them during their scholarship. Basically, I am not aware of any paper showing that promoting an ethical culture (such as fighting against the above behaviours) enhances students' academic performance and their learning efficiency during their scholarship. So basically it might more beneficial to let students behave unethically to enhance their creativity and so their overall academic performance.
HERE IS MY QUESTION:
1) Do you know any study showing that promoting academic integrity among students has a beneficial/detrimental effect on students' academic outcomes and learning efficiency?
2) More broadly, do you know any reference examining the relationship between promoting ethics and students' academic performance or students' learning efficiency?

Every version of the manuscript has been me as the senior/corresponding author. On the day we planned to submit, my mentor slipped in an asterick by both of our names and changed both of us to corresponding authors. My mentor never discuss anything like this with me, just slipped it in and told me to 'accept changes' and submit. What is the best way to respond to this obvious case of bullying?
Relevant answer
Answer
I do not see this as a problem. In my view, it is not theft, unfortunately. This may happen for many reasons. I will give you one example. From my experience in publishing in 3-star and 4-star journals, I can tell you that the editor(s) of a very good expert journal will first look at the names of the corresponding authors submitting the article, to identify whether they are established/famous scholars in the academic field. If they are, this can increase the chance of the manuscript going through the review process smoothly without significant issues. I think your mentor added his/her name as the corresponding author to help you expedite the review process more quickly in your favour since he/she has more experience than you, and probably is more famous than you in the field of study.
I had a junior colleague who got 4 rejections after submitting to some top journals. I joined him in re-writing the paper, he did much of the work, and we resent it back to one of the same journals. It was accept 6 months later.
While i understand your concern for ethics, you also need to know that "scholarship" includes both 'intellectual ability' and 'authors' popularity' in their field. I understand if you do not agree with this, but this is the way it is if you wish to submit to the best journals in your field.
However, there are other journals that do not care about the fame of authors but they are mostly low-ranked. You can submit to those journals if you do not want to publish in the very best (high quality) journals
I hope this helps!

Relevant answer
Answer
The 1st issue is the representativeness of your sample. I suspect the sample is a convenience sample & thus it will not in general be representative of more general populations. Without a random selection process for obtaining the data points, statistical tests may not be meaningful. Each of these 3 methods imply a different model underlying the data, so the questions I usually ask researchers is: Which model do you think is correct? Or, is there an established theory that suggests one model is preferred?
If you are looking for a less scientific answer, I would suggest proportions because this is a mathematical concept that is understood by most lay persons. As long as one does not try to project this proportion outside of the observed sample, you are on sound scientific grounds.

How to Apply Kohlberg's Theory in the Classroom
  • Lawrence Kohlberg's theory on moral development can be applied to the classroom where rules, standards, and consequences are concerned. The theory tracks an individual's level of moral reasoning by assigning him to one of six stages, where the first stage is a basic submission to authority and the last is universal ethics for all. As an educator, consider where your students' personal development lies in terms of Kohlberg's six stages. Then work toward achieving optimal moral character along the lines of Kohlberg's level six "Universal Principals" for a positive and constructive learning environment.
  • Students at stage one behave appropriately to avoid punishment. At stage two, students behave to earn rewards. By stage three, students start thinking about other people and caring about their expectations. Give students the opportunity to help create a classroom code of conduct. In this way, they will become responsible for the rules that they set and follow them accordingly, rather than blindly agreeing to standards set by school administrators or other authorities.
  • Allow for a written self evaluation as part of any disciplinary consequence. It does not have to be lengthy, but it should provide the student with adequate time to review their own reasoning for misbehavior and to come up with a solution for the future. This type of action relates to Kohlberg's fourth stage of morality, in which individuals do their part to maintain order by reflecting on the impact of their words and actions.
  • Plan group projects where students work together toward the understanding of curriculum instead of sitting back and listening to the teacher talk at them. Group activities encourage engagement. Responsibility for learning is placed squarely onto the students, facilitating adherence to the classroom goal of educational enrichment. Collaborate learning supports Kohlberg's fifth morality stage, which relates to upholding a social contract.
  • Make time for role play, whether it be related to the curriculum or used as a problem solving tool. By acting or seeing situations through the eyes of others, students gain a more broad understanding of what is taking place. This helps them to make decisions based not on themselves, but on a commitment to the group. Similarly, they have advanced to Kohlberg's sixth stage, in which the needs of every person in society are worth considering. In a classroom, a brief skit or scenario can help students focus on making sure everyone is involved and engaged in learning
