This is a one-page summary of the Little Albert experiment conducted by John Watson. A worksheet for the reading is attached.
The reading explains the backdrop for the experiment, a summary of events of the study, the ramifications of removing Albert from the experiment, and a 2010 update on the fate of Albert.
The questions cover a mix of topics, ranging from asking students about the main facts of the experiment, requiring them to create a classical conditioning diagram of Albert's fear, and having them reflect on their own views regarding the experiment.
This would probably best be used after introducing classical conditioning in a AP Psychology/Psychology courses.
