Stanford Prison Experiment- Comprehension Questions

(1)
This worksheet for students focuses on Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment, and is typically used alongside a video (there are several great videos available on Youtube, e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_LKzEqlPto). Although the detail is in places more than students need, the SPE is a named key study for AQA, and students tend to be very interested in this anyway. This is also useful for provoking discussion after wards, e.g. about validity, research methods and ethics. Trialled with several classes before publication.
