This caused a change in behavior with children with brown eyes. They became sad. While children with blue eyes were still quite happy. The next day, Jane told her class that she had lied to them and, in fact, children with brown eyes were children better. To his surprise, the children with brown eyes started to be mean to children with blue eyes.
On the second day the brown eyed children were the better group and had all the advantages instead of the blue eyed children. The children reacted very strongly to the experiment. The children put each other down because of their eye colour and if they fought each other. When tests were carried out the children in the better group did well but the children in the second group did badly. The children’s self-image and self-esteem were affected by the experiment because of the discrimination they had experienced.
The study found that the counsellor judged pupils largely on their social class; this therefore put them at a disadvantage as middle-class students were placed on higher level courses. The self-fulfilling prophecy is another internal factor that can be linked to social class differences in achievement. A self-fulfilling prophecy is a prediction that comes true simply by virtue of it being made. Some sociologists argue that labelling can effect pupil’s achievement by creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. This can be seen in a study of a primary school by Rosenthal and Jacobson.
arol Gilligan—influential feminist psychologist and author—is worried. Gilligan's 1982 book In Another Voice (called "the little book that started a revolution" by Harvard University Press) electrified the pundit class with its premise that girls were fundamentally misread and oppressed by American society. The advocacy programs promoting equality for girls that resulted from Gilligan's call-to-arms have had an impact few would deny. In fact, they may have worked too well, as schools generally acknowledge that girls now outshine boys in grades and high level-course enrollment (even in math and science, says the National Center for Education Statistics) and outnumber them in formerly male bastions such as honor societies, debating clubs and
This caused the children to see differences within each other, which would cause them to become exposed to the real world’s problem of racism. Miss Elliott began to openly tell both groups of children that blued eyes children are smarter than brown eyed children. This kind of verbal abuse would continue for days, poisoning the children’s minds. Miss Elliott made best friends become moral enemies within minutes. The brown eyed children began to feel frustrated and upset because of the names they were being called by the blue eyed children.
Girls can say the sky is blue and boys will come right behind us and say it’s red just to spite us. But are the little people like toddlers and pre-k children really different from each other? Don’t they all just want to be loved and spoiled? In this essay I will try to define the similarities and differences between toddler boys and girls. There are so many different matters I can touch on as far as the comparison and contrasting go for boys and girls.
Self-Fulfilling Prophecy Jane Elliot’s experiment first indicated that the students with blue eyes have superiority in intelligence, and that students with brown eyes were inferior. The next day she reversed this saying her statement was untrue and that the reverse situation now prevailed. The students that thought they were in the superior category oppressed the students in the inferior category, and the students in the inferior category exhibited negative self-worth and fear. Jane Elliot’s experiment exhibits prejudice because of the negative evaluations of the groups with different color eyes, and the members of these groups were not considered individuals. She based her judgments of them solely based on the physical characteristic of their eye color.
It is disgusting reading that kids do not have any moral conscious. If you are encouraging deviant behavior, that spawned off of moral values that you know of. Society will never accept the behavior or immoral behavior. The deviant behavior will be looked down on, due to the fact that your actions should be for the greatest good for the greatest number of people. When you are just acting on personal wants, and gains, the result is selfishness.
There are even some people that view it as a “normal” situation in which, in their opinion, everyone has to deal with at some point in time. The matter of fact is that no child should ever have to deal with bullying. It’s hard to understand why another child who is supposed to equally innocent as the other child he bullies, does what he or she does, especially at this day and age where we live in. Bulling not only ruins lives, but it ends them as well. Everyone at some point in time gets teased, teases, or sees someone get teased, and possibly thinks that it is no big deal, it’s just banter, but when banter and teasing crosses that fine line between bullying, there’s a big problem.
Discipline will not work if parents do not have a good relationship with their child This highlights how spanking a child will weaken the respect that is needed between child and parent. In turn, the child does not know that he/she did anything wrong because the child has no respect for the parent any more. These examples show how spanking does not teach the child to be good, but it changes the way that children approach
