  • 1. Stanley Milgram’s (1963) study of obedience Using your text, the Internet, other books and memory of the original video footage, complete this worksheet. 1. What was Milgram’s rationale for conducting this study? 2. Milgram recruited 40 participants in each study. Using the source below, identify how the participants were recruited, from where and whom they consisted of. 3. Highlight and explain other crucial information from the source that can be used to explain obedience, and describe or evaluate the study.
  • 2. 4. The participants entered Yale University and were introduced to two men. Who were these men and what roles did they play in the experiment? 5. What were the participants told about the study? 6. Participants were selected to be ‘teacher’ or ‘learner’. What were these roles and how were they selected? Explain your answer. 7. The ‘learner’ was taken to a separate room. Explain what the ‘teacher’ saw happen in this room. 8. The ‘teacher’ was then introduced to some equipment. Describe the equipment and his initial experience of it.
  • 3. 9. Describe the task of the ‘teacher’ and ‘learner’ as the experiment began. 10. What was the role of the experimenter during the experiment? 11. Find out when the ‘learner’ gave verbal feedback and explain the nature of this feedback. 12. The experimenter often gave verbal prods to the ‘teacher’. Find three verbal prods that were used during the study and explain why they were used. 13. Milgram found two major results, one at 300 volts and one at 450 volts. Find out what percentage of participants resisted at these voltage figures. 14. Using your knowledge of the video footage or what you can find out about the study to describe the behaviour of participants when ordered to shock the ‘learner’. Describe their behaviour as fully as possible. 15. The experiment was stopped when participants resisted obedience or when they had reached the end of the experimental condition. Explain what happened to them after the experiment was stopped.
