Product Description
Should psychological testing be done on humans or animals? Should humans be exposed to the traumatic effects of experimentation? Or should animals have to endure the suffering and altered living conditions that result from testing in psychology labs? Students will be compelled to answer these controversial questions and more after weighing both sides of the argument and analyzing a variety of sources on the subject.

Students will do the following during this lesson:

1) Respond to a Bell Ringer in which students will first watch two contrasting video clips that present the issue of animal experimentation and then they will be prompted to share whether they support or are against animal testing.

2) Read an introductory reading about the ethical issues of psychological experimentation on humans and animals.

3) Listen to an audio recording about strange and shocking experiments done on humans and animals and answer questions regarding the recording.

4) Research a variety of sources on competing sides of the issue with a focus on gathering textual evidence and coming to evidence based conclusions.

5) Write a mini-research paper about their position on the essential question: Should psychological experimentation be done on humans or animals?
