Kinesthetic Reinforcement-Is It a Boon to Learning?
Bohrer, Roxilu K.
Foreign Language Beacon, v5 n2 p12-14 W 1970
Language instruction, particularly in the elementary school, should be reinforced through the use of visual aids and through associated physical activity. Kinesthetic experiences provide an opportunity to make use of non-verbal cues to meaning, enliven classroom activities, and maximize learning for pupils. The author discusses the educational theories of De Sauze, Kale, and Asher, frequently giving examples of how kinesthetic reinforcement aids learning. (RL)
