How to write a discussion question for Developmental Psychology “A discussion question is one that invokes thought, synthesis, criticism, integration, comparison, evaluation, debate, distress, and hollering.” -- Esther Thelen An excellent movie, The Wild Child by Francois Truffaut, will be playing at Cornell Cinema the week of April 13. See below and http://cinema.cornell.edu/LateSpring09/thewildchild.html for details. The movie is based on Dr. Jean Itard’s journals about Victor of Aveyron (aka the wild boy of Aveyron). Submit a one-paragraph discussion question motivated by an issue raised in the movie. A good discussion question is open-ended, not one with a yes/no answer.
