This is a simulation of the Stanford Psychology Study on Imprisonment in 1971. It goes through a series of chapters in the process of incarceration as experienced by the student participants in the study. Each chapter consists of several slides, written descriptions, webcasts, and discussion questions. The presentation enhances the senses due to its graphic content and use of audio and visual media. The interviews of the participants make the whole experience very authentic and help the student to emerse themselves in an unforgettable way.
The discussion questions tie back to the slide material and are rich in stimulating critical thought process and allow students to grapple with moral and ethical issues regarding incarceration.
The website is easy to use. Simply click on the active links. The only concern is that you are not able to click on specific chapters in the slide show and therefore must start at the beginning each time. The Discussion Questions are in their own screens and are pertinent to the particular chapter under consideration.
There are also links for obtaining the DVD, getting in touch with the author, FAQs and related links. The reader may also go to the Social Psychology webpage to get a wider overview of where this topic fits into the larger discipline.

This links into the Stanford Prison Experiment website. Very thorough, gives the background, events, and the outcome of the experiment. I would definitely use this in a class to show the step by step events of how psychologically trying it is to be incarcerated, even when as a simulation.
