Suggested Responses: Students should explain that as children age, they rely more heavily on the left hemisphere of the brain for language processing. Additionally, language regions in the brain - such as the superior and middle temporal gyrus - become more specialized and are not as broadly activated during language tasks. Students should also note that children's brains become more connected as the volume of white matter in the brain increases, allowing them to combine various aspects of literacy more effectively. Because of this, students should recommend that teachers focus on helping children to integrate multiple literacy skills at once. Teachers should design lessons that teach children new words, encourage reading skills and spelling, and allow for discussion of story structure and character development.
