Project-based learning is “a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge” from BIE . The Bioethics Debate allows students to choose a side from an extensive list of bioethical topics and work with a partner to research and present both sides of the ethical problem. The project can be introduced by showing the movie Gattaca but is not required. After viewing the movie, students will choose a partner and topic from the list provided (or come up with their own relevant topic). Each partner is responsible for presenting their argument in a debate-style presentation with their partner. The debate consists of each partner presenting an opening statement, an audience Q&A, and finally, a rebuttal or closing argument. Audience members are responsible for completing a debate observation sheet for two of the debates and audience participation is part of the rubric.

This listing includes: Zip folder with PDFs of all the documents listed below
