Free Will stand alone lesson - AS Level taster?

Free Will stand alone lesson - AS Level taster?

I did this for a lesson observation with my A2 class and it would also work really well as a stand alone Ethics 'taster lesson' as we are at that time of year!When the students split into groups I gave them varying amounts of information about both the killer (Hannah Bonser) and her victim (Casey Kearney) - the point of the discussion being at what point (if any) did Bonser cease to be morally responsible for the murder based on her experience of life leading up to the death of her victim. I usually differentiate this task by putting the students in targeted groups and limiting how much info I give the the A/B students to challenge their thinking.
