Innovative Right Brain Teaching Techniques.
Richards, Regina G.
The significance of research on hemispheric differences for working with the learning disabled child is considered. Several methods for assessing a student's hemispheric preference are reviewed. It is suggested that the curriculum include teaching strategies that address both left and right brain functioning. Techniques for involving both hemispheres are noted to involve mnemonics, metaphors, mind-maps, music, visual strategies, imagery, and positive suggestions. Charts, illustrations, tables, and lists regarding lateralization and teaching techniques are included. (SW)
