Right-Brain Learners Go To School

While our whole brain is engaged with anything we do - people are primarily Left- or Right-Hemisphere dominant in regards to how they learn.

Left-Brain Dominant Learners-

Process from pieces to whole, Parts of language, Syntax/semantics, Letters/printing/spelling, Numbers, Techniques (sports, music, art), Analysis/logic, Looks for differences, Controls feelings, Language oriented, Time conscious, Structure oriented

When Left-Brain dominant learners are under stress:

They try harder/lots of effort, Without results, Without comprehension, Without joy, Without understanding, May appear mechanical/tense/insensitive

Right-Brain Dominant Learners-

Process from whole to pieces, Language comprehension, Image/emotion/meaning, Rhythm/dialect/application, Estimation/application, Flow and movement, Intuition/estimation, Looks for similarities, Free with feelings, Prefers drawing/manipulation, Spontaneous/fluid, Simultaneous thinking, Now oriented, Less time sense, People oriented

When Right-Brain dominant learners are under stress:

Loses the ability to reason well, Acts without thinking, Feels overwhelmed, Has trouble expressing, Cannot remember details, May appear emotional or spaced out

Our School System

Our school system is structured to work for 15% of children.

85% of children are kinesthetic learners who need hands-on lessons & movement in order to learn. (Dunn, Rita & Kenneth)

15% can learn via lecture, using steps, rules, and look & listen to teacher and verbalize what they learned. (Hannaford, Carla)

52% of children do not learn via auditory means (listening to a teacher talk).
