An Idea I'd like to discuss in class

Livi Gottschall's picture

Something I would like to really focus on in class is the way people perceive the ILCC institutions. I would like to compare the way each character percieves these places. We have seen how many of the patients hate the limits on their freedom and the specific reasons for their distaste. We have seen concern for the conditions of the facilities through adults like Joanne and Jimmie. We have even seen ideas from Michelle where she believes that the facilities are helpful. All of these characters have such different ideas over what these places represent. I think it would be really interesting to break down the beliefs of these characters.
