How can we apply what we have learnt about Obedience?
  • Most groups in Society have a HIERARCHY?
  • What does this mean?

See Supermarket example on p57

Giving orders, making business decisions, exercising discipline

Most Authority

Low obedience to others below

Taking orders, following instructions, obeying or else ‘fired’

Least Authority

Obedience to everyone higher up

keeping order in prisons
Keeping Order in Prisons
  • Read p 58 and fill in the worksheet.
use of uniform
Gives guards power and status

Easier for guards to give orders as they do not feel responsible for their actions

Prisoners lose identity – easier to control/distinguish

BUT - Prisoners may take less responsibility for their actions and become disobedient

Use of Uniform
use of punishment
Punishments for breaking rules in prison – prisoners more likely to obey

Solitary confinement

Loss of privileges

Use of Punishment
consensus
Can encourage obedience

Can encourage disobedience – must prevent ’ganging up’ amongst prisoners

Can lead to riots

Prisoners kept apart most of time, or monitored closely when in groups

Consensus
