24 and the Ticking Time Bomb

In this lesson, students interpret the TV show 24 and its use and justifications of torture. The lesson was designed for an introduction to human rights class. The lesson is possible at any stage of the semester and can be included in any class dealing with media and human rights or torture or introductory human rights classes. Students will interpret one or two episodes of the show, investigate arguments used for torture within their show and recognize that torture can never be justified.
