This 23-minute TED Talk by Philip Zimbardo focuses on the Lucifer Effect and how good people can turn bad. Zimbardo is famously known for his Stanford Prison Experiment where he even got lost in the role playing. This talk would be great to use during your Social Psychology Unit. Please see the WARNING below about one scene in the TED Talk.
This lesson would also pair great with the article summary worksheet I have for Zimbardo's A Prison by Any Other Name. Feel free to click the link and see if it is something you would be interested in purchasing.
I also have a movie guide available for the Stanford Prison Experiment Movie Guide (2015) available as well.

WARNING- The TED Talk video gives a warning at the beginning about the violent nature and some nudity in the video. The images are from the Abu Ghraib Iraq Prison Abuses 2008 Military Police Guards' Photos. It is from 5:03-6:47 and it even gives another warning before that part. I did not include any questions from that segment in case you would like to fast forward through it and I encourage that you watch it beforehand.
