Ethics in Psychology: Elephants on Acid Gallery Walk Activity

Happy Saturday, everyone! 

I recently came across this interesting article and book entitled Elephants on Acid by Alex Boese. Using an idea that Ms. Allison Shaver (Plymouth South High School, Plymouth, MA) gave me a while back, I created a new activity for my class. Using her idea for a "Gallery Walk" - you can turn the article into short readings put around the room on the wall and have your kids read though them in a class period, synthesize the information they've read, and then rank the studies in relation to the studies ethical and/or unethical behaviors.  



Here's the activity write up. LINK TO ARTICLE AVAILABLE THERE. 

What studies do you like to highlight when discussing ethics?
