In Search of...Brain-Based Education.
Bruer, John T.
Phi Delta Kappan, v80 n9 p648-54 May 1999
Debunks two ideas appearing in brain-based education articles: the educational significance of brain laterality (right brain versus left brain) and claims for a sensitive period of brain development in young children. Brain-based education literature provides a popular but misleading mix of fact, misinterpretation, and fantasy. (47 references (MLH)
