Should anabolic steroids remain banned? What about research cloning? In this activity, students work on constructing clear argumentative moral arguments using bioethical prompts. The instructor divides the class section into two groups and assigns each group a different side. The groups have the opportunity to discuss and form an argument. Then each group presents their argument, which the instructor writes on the board. The class discusses each argument. For more information and prompts, click "Resources."
