This 2015 film is based off of the 1961 study of Stanley Milgram. Milgram's study focused on people's willingness to obey authority even when it meant harming another. It also helped to understand why people would blindly obey, such as Nazi soldiers in WWII, when given orders by an authority figure.
I created a movie guide with 36 questions to ensure your student is tracking along with the entire film. This film would be great to use when discussing Ethics in Testing or Social Psychology. I also included the worksheet with two different titles (The Experimenter- Ethics in Testing/The Experimenter-Obedience to Authority) in case you would like to tailor it to fit either unit. This is also a great film to use after the AP Psych exam.
One could even use this in a World History class if you have time and wanted to make the connections between his study and Germans/Nazi's following orders in WWII.
The answer key has been included for your convenience. The film is 98 minutes and this lesson could be completed in about 2 hours when you factor in discussion time. The movie is rated PG-13 for thematic material and brief strong language.
