  What will be an ideal response?

Question 8

Consider the 12th -grade writing sample provided below. What attributes of the writing mark it as coming from an adolescent and not from a younger child? What type of writing does it represent?
  Athletes have been using enhancing substances for hundreds of years to improve their performance. Currently athletes still use substances to give them an edge over their competitors. With modern advances, there are many more products on the market. High school athletes have started taking advantage of such products. The hypothesis is that performance enhancing substances for student athletes are prevalent in high school. The rationale is that many students see professional athletes boosting their performance by taking such substances and the students assume that they would also improve. A survey will be administered to a sample population of students at a mid-west suburban high school. The survey will deal with sports, drugs, and performance enhancers.

Ans. to #1

ANSWER: True

Ans. to #2

ANSWER: False

Ans. to #3

ANSWER: False

Ans. to #4

ANSWER: False

Ans. to #5

ANSWER: True

Ans. to #6

ANSWER: verbal ability (including large vocabulary, ability to retell a story coherently, letter-sound knowledge, phonological and morphological awareness); physical factors (such as brain structure, genes); cognitive factors (both general and language-specific cognitive abilities); emotional factors (such as secure attachment, pleasant interactions during parent-child storybook reading); social factors (such as strong social skills especially cooperation, joint storybook reading/shared reading, use of literacy during play)

Ans. to #7

ANSWER: Student response will vary, but hopefully will include some of the following: At about age three, childrens writing still may not include real letters, but it begins to look like letters and is written in left-to-right lines. Children believe they are writing, but no one else can read it. In kindergarten, most children learn how to form letters correctly and to pair letters with sounds. They begin to write with real letters, using invented phonetic spellings and pictures. As children begin to read in 1st grade, emergent literacy is replaced by conventional literacy. A primary task of 1st grade is learning to read and write. The task shifts around 4th grade to using reading and writing to learn other things. At first, children are asked to write mostly personal stories in order to practice writing, but by the end of elementary school, children are asked to write expository text, like reports, to show what they know. Children become better spellers across elementary school. At first, they leave out the internal phonemes of words. After 4th grade, they become more skilled at conventional spelling. Adolescents become able to use domain-specific vocabulary to read and write in domains like science, history, or art. Quality of writing increases during adolescence in other ways as well Adolescents can produce an organized, persuasive paper. Essays and sentences are longer. Adverb connectors and abstract nouns are used more.

Ans. to #8

ANSWER: Student response will vary, but hopefully will include some of the following: Children are typically not able to write in this specialized, academic style for a scientific audience until adolescence. Other attributes that indicate this writing is from an adolescent and not from a younger child include: use of advanced, abstract, and domain-specific vocabulary; organization of the writing; length of the sentences; and use of adverb connectors (e.g., currently).
