My passion for psychology began in a music therapy classroom. I had been working with a seven year old boy diagnosed with autism for three weeks now and had only heard him speak three words: “Ready, Set, Go!”. Although this child received daily speech therapy his teachers and family had not heard him speak any other words. This boy’s favorite song was “Somebody to Love” by Queen and he would enthusiastically clap and dance whenever it played. The music therapist, to encourage this interactive behavior, played this song every session. One day he picked up a microphone and sang along to every word; although only a few were comprehendible. This is when I developed a desire to study autistic children: their behaviors, relationships, learning processes and had so many questions
The Diary of Anne Frank is a unique young adult novel because it was written by someone of your own age. This novel is written in a diary/letter format. Considering this what aspects of the diary seem untrustworthy? Diary/letter forms of novels challenge the reader because we are offered no other points of view. Therefore, one must consider how reliable is your source of information?
As a teenage girl forced to hide away and as a result is isolated from society, the reader cannot help but question some of Anne Frank's entries. For example, Anne Frank's emotions often seem to dictate her feelings, actions and thoughts about the others in the attic with her. The reader must carefully look for other context clues, although due to the diary format of this novel context clues are very limited. Anne Frank cites many conversations she has with the other members hiding in the annex. This could serve as a potential context clue. However, Anne Frank could elaborate or forget details of a conversation. Although the reader may question Anne Frank as a reliable source of information, however the lesson and stories she shares are unforgettable and offer us some insight into Nazi Germany from the unique point of view of a teenage Jewish girl.
