This week we covered chapter 10 (language). The assignment is (Discussion post) about 250 -500 words (you don’t have to write a reference, if you do, please use the one I have uploaded)
In the movie this week the critical period hypothesis was discussed. What is the critical period hypothesis and how was this hypothesis put to the test with both Genie and Victor (provide specific examples and details from the video)? How was Genie’s language acquisition similar to that of young children learning a first language, and how was it different (again, provide examples from the video to support your response)? Do you think the case of Genie was handled appropriately? Why or why not?
