Literacy and Neuroplasticity: Transforming Our Perspectives and Ourselves
Wilhelm, Jeffrey D.
Voices from the Middle, v17 n4 p37-40 May 2010
Wilhelm applies two of his core beliefs--that anyone can learn the next appropriate concept or process if they are provided with a meaningful situation and proper assistance, and that literacy and the kinds of texts we call literature provide a unique and powerful way of knowing and of transforming the self--to a look at how recent research on the brain can affect how we teach.
