Please check your grammar, sentence structure, and thought process – as this assignment is language focused 😉

Please watch the video attached below– it deals with a classic case study known as Genie the Wild Child

NOW:

  1. Discuss the case study (video) with reference to the key arguments on language development that are covered in your book, and the video, namely the critical period vs the sensitive period, and the behavioral approach vs the LAD approach (Noam Chomsky). How do these ideas clash and combine with this case.
  2. Use the article to assist in discussing how language acquisition affects other aspects of development.
  3. What are your take away thoughts about language development – does this case answer the questions? If not, why? What else do we need etc. make sure to use peer reviewed journal research to support your arguments. Do not use direct quotes from the article, only paraphrase and cite accordingly.
