A growing segment of civil society is turning to human rights to secure social, political, and economic objectives that they have sought for decades. This manual, intended for social justice advocates, provides concrete steps for integrating international human rights principles into their work. This hands-on training combines short presentations with interactive activities, including large group discussions, small group work, and role plays. Learn more about how this training on a human rights approach can transform your social justice work! Sustainability implies evolving our local and global civilization in a manner that makes sense socially, ecologically and economically. Whether we are aware of it or not, our everyday behaviors and practices are determining our destiny and that of the entire community of life for generations to come. Although Kohlberg’s stages of moral development do not directly parallel Piaget’s stages, Kohlberg was inspired and informed by Piaget’s work. At the post-conventional level, children have learned that there is a difference between what is right and wrong from a moral perspective, and what is right and wrong according to the rules. Like Piaget, Kohlberg has come under fire in recent years from cross-cultural psychologists who believe his theory is simply a codification of Western (post-modern Western liberal, to be precise) notions of justice and morality.
There are also some studies that indicate that children as young as 6 can attain vague concepts of universal ethical principles – they may be able to distinguish between a rule that says “no hitting” (universal and moral) and one that says “kids must sit in a circle during story-time” (conventional, arbitrary, and non-moral).
I think whilst its true that Kholberg was inspired by Piaget, its important to note that Piaget had a Moral Development Theory (which was built on his cognitive development theory). The Article: Why inequality in America is even worse than you thought by Justin Elliott in Salon.
The Text: There has been no shortage of headlines this week about the growing income and wealth inequality in the United States. But less attention has been paid to the fact that not only are the numbers bad in America, they’re particularly bad when compared to other developed nations. Daniel Schraad-Tischler, who authored the study for Bertelsmann, explained to me how the Social Justice Index works and why the U.S. We argue that the prevention of poverty is a fundamental precondition for social justice, so it is weighted most strongly in the overall ranking. One has to bear in mind that poverty in our index is defined as relative income poverty, not absolute poverty. The phrase refers to the need for contemporary generations to lead lives they value without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same. What are the policies that caused Northern European countries like Norway and Sweden to do so well in the rankings? He, along with writing partner Lance Weiler, is an alum of the Sundance Film Festival Screenwriter’s Lab (2010).
Much of his writing advice has been collected in various writing- and storytelling-related e-books.
Method: A synopsis will run about 2-3 pages, and detail the overall narrative thrust of the book. Method: A mind map is when you drill into your own head in an act of narrative trepanation, and you stuck a bendy straw in there and let the sweet STORY NECTAR dribble onto the page. My latest novel was optioned as a radio drama serial (I know!) before I finished the very final draft of the manuscript.
One thing you left out that I find helpful is drawing actual pictures of things in your story (or if you are not artistic enough you can clip out magazine photos or rip off stock images and insert them into your scrivener files watermarks and all).
Glad to see different ways of doing this since I wasn’t sure if what I was doing could have been considered an outline. I’ve tried a timeline-method approach, where I have plotty bits plus a different-colored lines meant to signify the character arc and also the progression of the relationship of the two MCs. I always go HELL YEAH CHARACTERS FIRST but now you’ve got me rethinking some tentpoles and structure.
First off, I just wanted to say that you made me giggle at your self analysis (and attempt to outline for fifteen minutes) because, quite frankly, you’ve described me in your creative spark of defiance.
I read through the comments and had to pause to read yours because you gripped me with your first sentence, and then the first paragraph. First, this manual helps advocates frame the issues on which they work in terms of international human rights standards. It helps ensure more participatory and sustainable solutions to social justice issues, provides common standards against which to measure the shortcomings of domestic policies, reframes social justice issues as human rights violations, expands the circle of allies to the larger global human rights community, and enhances accountability beyond the domestic justice or political systems. Participants will analyze situations from their own experiences and evaluate how applying a human rights framework would change their approach to solving problems within their community.
This module is a primer on human rights and the international human rights system and also explores the connection between human rights and social justice work. This module sets out the key definitions, principles, and elements of a human rights approach. This module introduces practical tools that can be used to implement a human rights approach, culminating in the creation of a concrete action plan. By examining these two theories side by side, it is possible to get a sense of how our concepts of the world around us (our descriptive concepts) influence our sense of what we ought to do in that world (our normative concepts). They learn that there are certain “conventions” that govern how they should and should not behave, and learn to obey them.
Although they often overlap, there are still times when breaking a rule is the right thing to do. Other moral and political cultures may not believe, for example, in universal principles independent of the social order.
Since Kohlberg’s theory questions whether even teenagers can attain this level of moral reasoning, these studies throw considerable doubt on his conclusions.
Reading this, I would presume that piaget had no theory about moral development and only a cognitive development theory. The notes are very good and helpful to me in my studies of Masters of Science in counseling in Zambia, Africa. A new study from the Congressional Budget Office, for example, found that income of the top 1 percent of households increased by 275 percent in the 30-year period ending in 2007. The German think tank used a set of policy analyses to create a Social Justice Index of 31 developed nations in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
Compared to a country with a very low income poverty threshold (Mexico, for instance), a wealthy country like the U.S. Values like equality, integration and community are deeply rooted in these countries’ societies.


Also coming soon is his compilation book of writing advice from this very blog: The Kick-Ass Writer, coming from Writers Digest. Their short film, Pandemic, showed at the Sundance Film Festival 2011, and their feature film HiM is in development with producers Ted Hope and Anne Carey. These are not so much golden rules as they are things I want you to grok regarding the plotting of one’s novel. One of the values of outlining is that it gives you a map forward — a fraying rope to reach for and cling to in the long darkness of the writing process. No battlefield strategy survives contact with the enemy, and no outlines survive contact with the story.
It’s not like the Outline Police are watching from the trees, sniper rifles ready to peel your scalp in case you deviate from the well-lit path of the outline. I find writing three paragraphs of summary as time consuming as writing ten pages of outline. The one with the Roman numerals (I, II, III) and then beneath that, in indented order: regular old numbers (1, 2, 3) cap letters (A, B, C), lowercase letters (a, b, c). So, you’re practicing with one format when ideally you should be learning to practice another. No specific format, but assume it should read like the encyclopedia for a world that doesn’t necessarily exist. Also means you’re likely to build in tons of things that have nothing to do with the plot or the characters. This might be better when paired with one of the other outline forms, just to give you something less theoretical and more comprehensive. Adapting the story into another medium altogether was extremely helpful in polishing the story. Out of everything I’ have written, outlining (in whatever form it takes) has definitely been something that helped me complete what I was working on. First, I write down the main parts of the book, then I try to fill in the chapters using scenes. When your ideas are in an idea state, they’re unformed, unstructured, subject to change. You sit down, come up with ideas, scenarios, characters, character timelines, plot… etc.
You can try to get fired up for writing, but that kind of willpower fueled creativity is only going to last so long and probably get you no further than 15 minutes of really thinking hard about your idea. Next, the manual helps advocates identify human rights-based strategies they can use to ensure these rights are fulfilled for all people. The training provides tools such as organizational assessments, case studies, and implementation models to help organizations create an action plan for using human rights principles in their own operations and advocacy work. Four key strategies for how to apply a human rights approach are explained in detail, as well as how these strategies affect an organization’s social justice work in terms of planning and actions. Each of the tools provided corresponds to the different human rights-based strategies explained in Module 2. Kohlberg theorized that there were 6 stages of moral development, separated into 3 levels: pre-conventional, conventional, and post-conventional. They begin by avoiding punishment, and quickly learn that by pleasing others they can secure positive benefits as well. These critics charge that Kohlberg’s ideas are simply an attempt to make his own moral beliefs appear to be psychological facts. The best conjecture, however, may be that Kohlberg’s stages describe not a one-way process of psychological growth for an individual, but a categorization of different types of moral values, which may be developed and prioritized differently for different individuals and moral cultures. I mean Piaget had 2 stages of Moral Development, namely heteronomous morality and morality of Cooperation.
First, we use expert assessments of family and pension policies to evaluate measures aimed at both younger and older generations.
The Nordic states are very successful in creating equal opportunities in education and the labor market. Together they co-wrote the digital transmedia drama Collapsus, which was nominated for an International Digital Emmy and a Games 4 Change award.
Every time I do it I have to grit my teeth and swig whiskey and engage in a movie montage where I ragefully punch frozen beef and run through snow.
And often, pitching an unwritten novel (which becomes hypothetically doable once you’ve sold your first novel) may require an outline, too. I believe very much that writing and storytelling feels like magic while at the same time being a wholly and gloriously mundane activity. Every journey across the country will require detours and unexpected stopovers — you should expect this, too, when you jump from the outline to the actual novel at hand. Focuses not at all on the plot of the single book and more about the overall world — including history, food costumes, design notes, religions, myths, traditions, holy dildos, mating parades, monkey-punching rituals, etc. The fist time I did Nanowrimo (five years ago, without an outline), I wrote 50,000+ words of basically garbledygook. Oh, and I alternate writing screenplay and novel versions of my story because I think each improves the other. Then, since I often start with character and back-work to plot, I could try plotting out scenes intended to do have whatever effect on the character(s). You’ve got the reliable old novel, sure, but there are also novellas, graphic novels, web comics and web serials. I am a bundle or storified potential energy-outline is in place, just couragefearcockinessangerhopelessnessshortsidenessprocrastination seems to stall me.
All too often, I find myself overthinking the beginning or a sentence or the images in my mind.
How am I going to repeatedly kick myself in the brainpants without a higher-than-the-RDA dose of Wendig every few hours?
As part of the training, participants will receive copies of the powerpoints, training manual, and all other materials for their own use.
Age ranges are considerably more vague in Kohlberg’s theory, as children vary quite significantly in their rate of moral development. His theory also seems to have a troubling normative aspect – that is, it seems to suggest that certain kinds of moral reasoning are better than others. Some notes may kindly be given on OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) which is a general phenomenon now-a-days. These are not mentioned, and I think they are important given there is reference here to Piaget’s Cognitive Development model.


Second, we look at a country’s environmental policy and how effectively it protects natural resources. They are also at the forefront of efforts to combine parenting and labor market participation. It is popular in Poland.) A synopsis is less about the sequence of events and more about the scope of the book.
Each Roman numeral might identify a chapter and then you drill down into the events of that chapter. A scene generally is set in a single location in an uninterrupted span of time — it is contained. Point is, the book is like a tent and it only remains aloft and functional when a certain series of tentpole plot points hold it up.
You can track plot, theme, characters, really anything you want — and you can do so in an explicitly visual way. This bundle normally runs for $20, but for the whole month of October, if you use coupon code NAPLOYONOMO you can get it for 25% off — aka, $15. I may, potentially, start NaNo with the screenplay and then go back and fill stuff in for the rest of the month. Web comics and serials tend to divide a story into smaller, bite sized chunks that are potentially more manageable. You need to develop a habit that you can stick with, even when the fires of inspiration burn low. Just choose a subject or part of your story that you want to begin with, then type out the words for the sentence. The parallel with Piaget’s sensorimotor phase is obvious – for a child whose conceptual framework does not extend beyond their own senses and movements, the moral concepts of right and wrong would be difficult to develop.
In the second, they extend that principle to cover the whole of their society, believing that morality is what keeps the social order intact.
This, of course, presupposes certain moral assumptions, and so from a philosophical perspective Kohlberg’s argument is circular. In many ways income poverty reflects the consequences of weak policymaking in areas such as education, labor market and integration of immigrants into society.
The system of daycare centers in these countries – which are used by the great majority of children – allows sufficient flexibility for both parents to work. Now it’s just a smooth patch of flesh like bubble gum stretched across a puckered mouth. Call me back when you have contained actual lightning — at which point you will learn that no amount of outlining is capable of diminishing its ELECTRIC FURY. Note that these outlining modes are not necessarily exclusive to each other — they can be used together, if need be. Detail the main characters, their arcs, the POV, the conflicts, the time and setting, maybe touch a little on theme. Just you cranked up on the batshit adrenalin formed when you’ve got your teeth around a good tale, running like a hog on fire through the jungle of your story. I started with a simple outline for a short story that was going to be for a flash fiction challenge. We have to actually reach out and put our filthy hands to the pristine white clay of our ideas. A drawback here would be needing to potentially team up with an artist, but it could be worthwhile if that’s what it takes to stave off boredom. I’m not sure what all it is for you, but what I do know is that you should try to start somewhere. Kohlberg believed that many people stay in this stage for their whole lives, deriving moral principles from social or religious authority figures and never thinking about morality for themselves. The Nordic countries, for instance, have low poverty rates because their educational systems as well as their labor markets are very inclusive.
That takes into account the level of public investment in research and development and, on the other hand, the level of national debt, which is a mortgage to be paid by future generations. Also, various pieces of software can be used across these outlining methods — Word, Scrivener, Excel (yes, you can do some of these in spreadsheets), Index Card apps for your phone, Mind Mapping apps, etc.
They can cover major plot points only, or drill down and encompass every little beat of action that occurs.
Chart their arcs — who are they when the tale begins and what do they become in the crucible of the narrative?
They also have welfare states that invest actively in each individual’s capacities so that socially disadvantaged groups are not excluded. Luke walking the plank on the skiff above the Sandy Fanged Butthole just before R2D2 ejaculates a lightsaber into the air is a scene. So, you just need to write down the four or five big holy shit things that are utterly absoflogginglutely required for this thing to function. This is less about what happens next and more about creating a group of characters and setting them on their path together (or in opposition to one another) and watching the story unfold. A novel is, but a screenplay goes through various hands and phases before it actually ends up on screen.
I was just hashing out some details of my Storm World idea with a friend who studied climatology. Drawing the room or area the fight happens in and draw where the gun is on the mantle or where the shovel is leaning against the shed, really helps you plot that event out. Investing in early childhood education is also a key instrument to level the playing field and create upward mobility. Its massive level of debt (more than 100 percent of GDP) in particular puts a strong burden onto future generations. All those scenes add up to the LUKE MAKES GOOD ON HIS PROMISE TO STRAIGHT-UP MURDER JABBA THE HUTT sequence. A film tends to have eight sequences, roughly 40-60 scenes, and those add up into three total acts. You get to think about where doorways are and which room will be the living room and the dining room and the SEX TARP room. The goal here is to write out every sequence and then build into that what scenes comprise each.
