Journal of Accelerated Learning and Teaching, v24 n1-4 Spr-Fall 1999
This document comprises the entire output for the journal for 1999. "Brain-Based Learning Longitudinal Study Reveals Solid Academic Achievement Maintenance with Accelerated Learning Practice," is a longitudinal follow-up study to an article in the preceding issue of this journal (v23 n3-4). This study further validates the effectiveness of accelerated learning practices' detailed bridge to achievement-accelerated learning (BTA-AL) in both articles. The second article, "Tactual Resources at the College Level: Toys for Adult Learning," discusses the latest thinking and resources available for teaching nontraditional students who do not like to read and may be at high risk for college failure. The third article, a book review of "Changing Consciousness" (David Bohm and Mark Edwards), is titled "Exploring the Hidden Source of the Social, Political and Environmental Crises Facing Our World." Also included are "Brain-Based Accelerated Learning and Cognitive Skills Training Using Interactive Media Expedites High Academic Achievement", and a review of David Bohm's 1994 edited seminar transcript, "Thought as a System." The first article builds upon and expands the theoretical and empirical basis for validating the effectiveness of BTA/AL methods based on case studies in previous articles (v23 n3-4 and v24 n1-2) of this journal. The second article examines David Bohm's handling of the question: Can thought be aware of itself? (KFT)
