Peggy Orenstein proved this in her essay, "Learning Silence: Scenes from the Class Struggle," in which she did field research in junior high schools interviewing and observing the interaction of teachers to their students. I think the reason teachers unknowingly give more attention to a particular gender is because of the way that the teachers were brought up to think. The roles of each gender have already been laid out and embedded in the minds of the teachers from their own teachers and parents while growing up. I think that teachers have many preconceived notions of the gender relations of their students. The teachers unknowing pass the ideas that they learned as a child onto their students, who also do not realize that it is being done to them.
U5A3 SP3450 - Social Psychology Unit 5 Assignment 3: The Milgram Experiment 01/22/14 Milgram Experiment A psychologist from Yale University named Stanley Milgram conducted the Milgram obedience experiment. He wanted to see the participant’s willingness to obey an authority figure while testing their moral conscience. In the experiment they were told that they would be either a “teacher” or a “learner” and would be randomly be assigned to either role. However unbeknownst to them all the slips said teacher and people aware of the study acted like they got the learner slip. The teacher was given a list of words that he read to the learner.
The Experiment The experiment involved a teacher and a learner (an actor) in separate rooms with the learner strapped into a chair and wired into a generator. The teacher would then ask a number of questions related to memory recall via a microphone. If the learner answered incorrectly an electric shock was administered, by the teacher via, an elaborate apparatus. Although the teacher believed the shocks to be real they were in fact simulated. These simulated shocks were of an increasing scale, from 15v through to 450v and the more the learner answered incorrectly the higher the voltage.
Obedience is a fundamental instinct. In Stanley Milgram’s essay, “The Perils of Obedience,” he shows his readers that adults will basically do anything they are told to and he tries to figure out why this is. In order for his experiment to be successful, the subject has to be placed in a situation where their values are in conflict with each other. The experiment has three main people in it, the “learner,” who is an actor, the “teacher,” and the instructor (106). The instructor tells the teacher that this is a memory test and if the learner misses a question then the learner will be shocked with voltages varying from 15 volts to 450 volts.
Heid 1 Jennifer Heid Professor Harris English 1000 29, February, 2014 Final Draft Do you think there could be another event like the holocaust due to the amount of Obedience to an Authority figure? In Philip Meyers article, “If Hitler Asked You to Electrocute a Stranger, Would You?” A social psychologist named Stanly Milgram, working at Yale at the time, put his theory on obedience to the test. Milgram uses cause and effect to find his theory. Milgram uses actors to act a scene where the “ learner’ gets electrocuted by the “teacher” to show obedience to the authority figure. In addition, in Milgram’s theory of obedience, he uses “teachers,” which are the “subject” to authority.
Stanley Milgram a Yale University psychologist, who does a series of social psychology experiments to measure willingness, and study how participants obey under pressure. Milgram’s experiments showed the world that an ordinary citizen will inflict pain on another person simply because he was ordered to by an experimental scientist.
In the experiment, a teacher was instructed by a scientist to administer electric shocks to a victim as part of a science experiment. Milgram's experiment showed how an expert or an authority figure can easily coerce humans into doing something which goes against their own judgment. This is exactly what made the My Lai Massacre happen. Soldiers were following instructions from the authorities despite the fact that at some point they tried to stop it, they were forced to continue the massacre. Soldiers are trained to always follow orders, never question orders .
It is about one teachers experience at a rundown comprehensive school who is attempting to change the education system. In this piece, I undertook the role of Mr Nikon, I also played Mr Deanie, both of whom are teachers in the school. Mr Nixon, being my main role, represents the author – John Goodber. Mr Nixon shares all his views and is the one who has to make the audience understand Goodbers outlook on the
An educational psychology lecturer often makes comments in class like, “Whenever I read something new, I always ask myself, ‘How does this relate to what I’ve been studying? For example, ‘How does working memory differ from long-term memory?” a) Using social cognitive theory as a basis, explain what the lecturer is trying to do. b) Using information processing theory as a basis, explain what the teacher is trying promote. 5. You run into a man that you used to speak with regularly, frequently addressing him by name, but you haven't seen him in a long time.
Ms. Britt: Something they teach you in psychology is the power of suggestion. They demonstrate this by telling you about things like the placebo effect, or Zimbardo's prisoner study, or an experiment involving three classes: A, B, and C. What they'll tell you in psychology is that classes A, B, and C are all made up of mediocre students. They're nothing special, but they're not flunking, either. What the people who run the experiment do is they take three teachers as alike as they can find for classes A, B, and C. The teacher for class A is told that the students are high achievers (remember that all the students are considered average). The teacher of class B is told that the students are average, and the teacher of class C is told that the students are failures.
