Cognitive Style and Hemispheric Dominance: Piecing the Puzzle Together--Toward Practical Application in Teaching the Social Studies.
Christensen, Lois M.
There are various learning styles, each with its own characteristics. Some researchers have associated the different styles with specific brain hemispheres. In the past teachers generally have taught with one type of learning style in mind, with much emphasis placed on the outcomes of learning. Increased attention should be paid to the individual style of the learner, and to the processes of learning in general, instead of looking mainly to outcomes. A number of models and conceptual frameworks for teaching the social studies that emphasize learning styles and a whole brain approach can be identified. A 32-item list of references concludes the document. (DB)
