Do you suspect your child is a right-brained learner? Right-brained children have a unique way of taking in and processing information. They possess amazing gifts and talents, and the more we understand and harness those strengths, the more successful we will be in teaching them. This blog describes right-brained learners and their most common characteristics, what happens when they are under stress, and describes the strengths of right-brained learners.
One factor that exacerbates an already difficult situation is what happens in the brain when stress occurs. If you take a primarily right-brained learner, put her into a logic/sequential educational setting, the result is going to be stress for the child.
The reality is that we are teaching our right-brained population in a severely left-brained manner, and when they fail, we break learning down into an even more left-brained fashion. What results is a totally unnecessary tragedy for each of those learners.
