Debate kit - stem cells

This kit encourages students to consider the ethical issues that stem cell treatments raise and to develop students’ debating and discussion skills. Role play gives students a chance to explore the different sides of the issue and compare others’ points of view, as well as considering social, ethical, political and factual issues in an integrated way. Included in the kit are eight debate cards outlining the opinions of a number of different fictional characters. The question posed for the debate is: should the UK government fund embryonic stem cell research?
