Description

With reference to imagery, answer the following questions using the information presented in this week's readings:

What would it be like to grow up without the ability to see or hear?

What types of thoughts and imagery would you be capable of generating?

How would you begin to teach someone who is both blind and deaf? Please read the article that I have attached in my initial post on this topic for some ideas.

Would it be possible to explain what a beautiful sunset looked like to a person who has never been able to see?

Considering your current career goals, what career would you pursue if you suddenly lost your sight? How would such a loss impact your perception of yourself?

TEACHER NOTES

 

According to the Week-2 lecture, much of one’s conscious experience, even in the absence of sensory input, seems to involve sensory imagery, which is simply defined as thinking about a particular sensory or perceptual event. This could include imagining walking through your childhood home or remembering the smell of freshly baked bread. Our thoughts or memories typically require some form of imagery, which may be visual, auditory, or kinesthetic. The sensory systems present the average person with some of the most tangible evidence of brain function including sight, sound, touch, pain, taste, smell, and the sensation of movement.

In developing your thoughts on this assignment, please consider the case of Helen Keller who at the age of 19 months had a high fever which caused her to become deaf and blind. In spite of this, she went on to become quite an accomplished and famous person.
