Looking for a way for students to have fun and learn own their own? Then this project is a perfect download! You won't be disappointed.
Students will create a documentary including interviews, social experiments that they choose to carry out, an informative piece where they teach others about social norms, conformity, and classic research in this area carried out by known psychologists, and panel discussion style conclusion. Through the use of iMovie app on their phones, students can create these documentaries with music, graphics, time lapse, and other editing features. This project was done outside of class so I gave them about 2 weeks to complete. My students loved this project and the final product was informative, funny, and eye opening to see their own conclusions about why people conform and how important social norms are. Totally adaptable for regular or AP Psych classes.
