“All scientists must consider whether the positive effects from their research are likely to be significantly higher than the negative effects.”
As shown in their literature, eighteenth and nineteenth century Europeans were fascinated by scientific exploration and experimentation and we can see that presented in The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and in Frankenstein.
We are also a part of a generation of scientific experimentation and discoveries. Questions, debates, and even arguments come with this kind of experimentation and their discoveries.
This project, asks students to think further about their reading (Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde or Frankenstein) by evaluating the pros and cons of a scientific advancement and choosing a side to be on.
The item outlines specific requirements of the project (and can be modified, as it is in Microsoft Word) and a rubric for the educator to use while the student(s) are presenting. The rubric could also be modified if needed
