This Social Psychology activity is based on 3 possible choice. It revolves around the classic dilemma where a person's loved one needs a drug to survive and is unable to afford it. Therefore they have to steal it. The students must read and answer 7 questions based on the situation contained within the activity.
After they answer the questions, students break up into 3 groups based on the 3 different choices. Students than will gain more points on their views to develop a short answer explaining their choice.
The activity can be modified to have a person from each of the groups convince the other students to join in on their views. If the choice is heavily one-sided I will omit this section of the activity.
A Conclusion is provided explaining the 3 choices using Kolhberg's 3 conventional levels.
Excellent activity for Psychology (Social Psychology) and Philosophy.
(If in Canada it is used for Psychology 20)
