Grade level/band: 11–12
- Students read a scenario about a fictional student taking a test. They are asked to analyze that scenario to identify the areas of the brain that would be more active than usual for someone in that situation. Students will research the physical and cognitive processes that are mentioned in the scenario and localize those processes to different areas of the brain. As part of their research, students should also consider ways to mitigate the adverse affects of test taking. In a 2- to 3-page paper, students present this information along with their justifications for their conclusions.
