Freeberg, The Education of Laura Bridgman, ch. 6-9
Please answer one of the following questions:
1) How would you characterize Howe’s and Bridgman’s relationship? How would you describe the power dynamics? What does this suggest about institution life? Use evidence from ch. 6-9 in Freeberg to support your answer. [answer only if you did not write on this topic for Tuesday]
2) After reading the chapters on morality and religion, how do you feel about Howe’s personality and his overall experiment with Laura Bridgman? Use evidence from ch. 6-9 in Freeberg to support your answer.
3) Alternatively, you can summarize in several sentences (or possibly a short paragraph each) your “muddiest point(s)” in ch. 6-9 in Freeberg.
