Mere Monkeys challenges VCE students to consider the findings of classic animal research that has contributed to the contemporary understandings in psychology and led to the current practices for ethical care and treatment of animals in research.
Students will be involved in an ethical discussion regarding a Zoo-based case study as members of an Animal Ethics Committee (AEC) and observe the behaviour of a social primate species, collecting and recording qualitative and quantitative data which can be further analysed back at school.
This program can be used to meet the requirements of the School Assessed Coursework (SAC) and addresses the area of study and outcomes in:
- VCE Psychology Unit 1: Introduction to psychology (Area of study 2: Lifespan psychology)
- VCE Psychology Unit 2: Self and others (Area of study 1: Interpersonal and group behaviour)
Zoos Victoria Education aligns with best practice learning strategies for VCE Psychology and has a strong focus on collaborative learning and developing inquiry skills.
Our educational experiences cater for students of all learning needs.
