Tricky Susie B.
Student: Mrs. Butler? Look at this picture of Susan B. Anthony. It says it was taken in 1898.
Me: Yes, it does say that...
Student: But I think she died before then.
Me: Well, let's look. Oh, look here. It says she died in 1906.
Student: But I think she may actually be dead in this picture.
Me: I don't think they would do that. Besides, she looks pretty alive to me?!
Student: I think they just propped her up and opened her eyes. You know, trick photography.
It may not have been her most flattering picture, for sure, but I'm pretty sure I've looked worse. It could've been a Monday morning!
Happy Thursday--sliding into the home stretch!
