Who's Afraid of the Polygraph? An Inter-Disciplinary Unit
Klieger, Aviva; Bar-Noy, Tuvia
Teaching Science, v54 n1 p24, 27-30 Mar 2008
The polygraph (lie detector) may be an ideal vehicle for converting aspects of a physiology course into an interdisciplinary course, enabling discussion of interrelationships between science, technology and society (STS) and social dilemmas arising from technological developments. The authors present a way of incorporating the polygraph into a pre-service teacher education physiology course. They briefly present the scientific, technological and social aspects of the polygraph as well as a suggested sequence of suitable lessons and activities. Some of the activities presented here are laboratory experiments using "hands on" approach and ICT. (Contains 4 figures and 1 table.)
