This is an interesting perspective that may be valuable for some teachers. However it did occur to me that the issue of right and wrong is more a matter of feeling than thinking

"Research suggests a helpful, three-part framework for discussing issues of right and wrong.

Issues of right and wrong come up in classrooms all the time, and it can be hard to know how to deal with them. Punching a classmate is obviously a different kind of “wrong” than disrupting a lesson by yelling out an answer, yet these are both things that students shouldn’t do. And that’s not to mention the moral questions that can arise when studying history, science, or literature.

How should we think and talk about these kind of issues with our students?

Studies reveal that people across cultures, including children as young as three years old, make social judgments that can be categorized into three “domains,” or types of knowledge. This can be a different and useful way of thinking about rules and “right vs. wrong”:

  • The moral domain
  • The conventional domain
  • The personal domain
