This is an excellent writing activity for students enrolled in AP Psychology. While studying Chapter 2 on Research Methodology, your students can be working in small groups to brainstorm the 10 ethical dilemmas in this activity. I would divide the students into groups of 3 to 4 students per group. Assign roles within each group. One student to read the ethical scenario. One student to transcribe or record the group's positions on each ethical dilemma. One spokesperson per group who will articulate the group's position. The most important aspect for your group is to answer the following questions after each ethical scenario, "Does this research appear to be in violation of any ethical principles? Why or why not? If it does how could it be redesigned?
