This week, my IB Theory of Knowledge classes will be learning about The Milgram and Stanford Prison Experiments.
You can find a ton of related resources at our class blog.
Coincidentally, yesterday researchers announced they had done a modern version that replicated the original findings:
Perfect timing! After we learn about the original Milgram, I’ll ask students if they think that people would act the same way today. It will be interesting to hear their responses. Afterwards, I’ll share this study.
