If you were a social science researcher, how would you discover which

As you watch the film “Wild Child” jot down your thoughts on the
following questions:

1) What were behaviours common to both Genie and Victor (and other
   isolates)? List as many as you can in the space below:




2) Can the effects of child neglect be reversed? Explain using examples
   from the film.




3) Why is Genie’s case inconclusive? Why can we not draw completely
   firm conclusions?




4) What was the central ethical issue faced by all of the researchers working
   with Genie?
