Working as pairs, you will put together a website that provides a primer for your peers at UVA on a topic in the neurobiology of speech and language. You’ll choose a topic that focuses on a well-defined question
You will need to pick a topic with some divergence of opinion in the field, so that you and your partner can focus on different hypotheses or theories. You should each attempt to find the best evidence in support of the hypothesis you’ve picked, and then synthesize your knowledge into a document or set of documents that provides a general introduction to the topic, clearly explains competing hypotheses in the field, and details the evidence in support of each hypothesis.
Your website will develop over the course of the semester, with stops along the way to assess your progress and obtain feedback from me and your classmates.
