In contrast, Montessori seems to claim an opposing view, one example being Montessori feels very passionately about teacher intervention, she mentions in the story a teacher needs to about interacting with a student so as “without letting him or her feel her presence.. but may never be an obstacle”.

To be marginalized is to be treated as insignificant, which can serve to be a double edged sword that can serve the oppressor or the oppressed. Her marginalization allowed her to beg her grandmother “(Jacobs 116) not to allow her children to be impertinent to the irascible old man”. Her marganizalition aided her because her unimportance drastically reduced the rate at which people searched for her.

Pain, both physical and mental, affects every character in The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. However, the biggest loss, which is that of the Price family’s youngest child, Ruth May’s, life also brings about some positive effects as well. Here, similarly to in Twelfth Night, a person is sacrificed for the greater good. Naturally, it may be more difficult to imagine the benefit of Ruth May’s sacrifice than to imagine the benefits of Viola’s, but if given adequate thought, it becomes clear that the death of Ruth May helps the other women in the Price family to realize Nathan Price’s destructive ways. Kingsolver first exposes Leah Price’s newfound argumentative and bold personality, and her opposition towards her father in the following exchange, “”She wasn’t baptized yet,” he said.
