  • 1. AGGRESSION DEBATE How much of aggression is learnt? The conclusions of Bandura, Ross and Ross’s research support the Behaviourist idea that aggression is learnt; but how far can we support these findings? The recent trial of two young boys (aged 11 and 12 years) over the torture of two innocent school boys has sparked this controversial debate. In your group you need to come up with valid arguments FOR the behaviourist idea that aggression is learnt via observation and imitation. Find other research as well as using Bandura et al.’s study to support your arguments. Also look at other cases in the news which could also be used to support this belief. Be prepared to battle it out with the other side!!! In your groups assign the following roles; 1 person to research on the internet 1-2 people to collate the information found by the researcher 1-2 people prepare to present a logical argument to the class You have until the end of this lesson to prepare all of your materials ready to debate this next lesson. The more effort you put into the content, the more you and the rest of the class will get out of this task! Good luck!
