50 first dates

  • What happened to the main character that caused her to have memory problems? What sections of the brain were damaged in the trauma?

  • Give description/examples of the different types of memories displayed. Semantic, flashbulb, etc. (use your notes). Prove 2 examples each and tell what happened and why it would fit as that particular type of memory.

  • Why would the family repeat the same day over-and-over? Explain. Was it coddling Lucy? Were they trying to protect her? Or was there other reasons? Use a paragraph to explain your answer.

  • Describe the other characters and how the interact with Lucy (pick any three). What is each of them doing for her or against her? Is anything being done to help her regain her memory?

  • Why can Lucy only remember before the accident? She seems unwilling to face the memory of the accident (understandably), but could the unwillingness of the character to accept the past be a reason for her memory problems or is it similar to the man with a 30 second memory? Describe your answer with example from the movie and class to explain. 4 -5 sentences.

Secrets of a wild child
Secrets of a Wild Child

  • Genie lived her early years almost entirely alone. List the things that she “failed to learn” because she was alone.

  • According to the documentary, was Genie able to learn after she was rescued from her isolation? In your response, describe the impact of socialization (including any agents of socialization) on Genie’s progress.

  • What, if anything, held her back?

  • Isolated children have unusual learning histories. Suggest the reasons why we think we can learn something about normal learning from studying these children.

  • Genie’s case is particularly interesting to researchers who work in the area of language acquisition. Scientists believe that there may be a critical period for first language acquisition. This means that there is a time limit during which the baby/child must be exposed to language if s/he is to acquire language normally. In theory, if a child is not exposed to language during the critical period, s/he will never be able to acquire it normally. Do you think that this was the case with Genie? Or, do you believe that she may have had underlying learning disabilities from birth?
