Supporting Right-Brained Thinking
Mescolotto, Lee M.
Science Teacher, v77 n6 p36-39 Sep 2010
In his book, "A Whole New Mind", Daniel Pink champions the benefits of right-brained thinking: creativity, flexibility, empathy, and meaning. He stresses the need to not only be logical, but also aware of emotion; to not only be sequential, but also conceptual; and to not only be calculating, but also recognize value. The project described in this article is designed to expose students to some of the right-brained--or R-directed--concepts that Pink proposes and inspire them to view genetics and other disciplines in a more creative light.
