Optimizing Learning. A Leadership Accessing Monograph: Education of Gifted and Talented Youth.
Data on the development of intelligence and the concept of giftedness are interpreted for use in the classroom and are applied to the development of strategies to optimize learning. The Integrative Education Model is introduced, with its purpose of empowering the learner physically, emotionally, cognitively, and intuitively. The teacher's role is described as central to the establishment of the optimal learning environment, as the teacher sets the tone, establishes the organization, facilitates the goals, and influences the productivity of each class member. The human brain is described, and functions of the brain are discussed, with the integration of these functions seen as allowing human intelligence to express itself most fully. A number of specific activities are offered to illustrate the affective-cognitive interaction of left brain-right brain functioning. (JDD)
