Exploring the Research Concerning Left Hemisphere/ight Hemisphere Cognitive Processes and Examining One Instructional Technique Which May Be Implemented Across the Curriculum to Produce Holistic Thinkers by Gloria Houston( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Current writings on the functions of the left and right hemispheres of the brain are examined, focusing upon possible implications for improving present educational techniques. It has been generally accepted by researchers that the organizational and verbalizing processes are functions of the left cerebral hemisphere, while creative and intuitive processes are functions of the right. Because of the value placed on verbalization, planning, ordering of facts, and numerical calculations, the American school system provides education almost totally devoted to developing the verbal and rational left brain hemisphere. With the exception of a few elective courses, the intuitive and creative right hemisphere is unrecognized in the school curriculum and goes largely untaught. It is widely agreed, however, that solving complex problems in changing circumstances requires the activity of both cerebral hemispheres working together. Creative dramatics offers an experience in holistic learning--using both cerebral hemispheres and, hence, the whole brain. Creative dramatics techniques may be used to teach almost any subject that requires the organization of ideas or the reinforcement of specific mechanical, sequencing, and imagery skills. The phases of creativity employed in creative dramatics are outlined in this paper, and ascending levels of creativity are described. (Jd)

Brain Research and the Language Arts by Gloria Houston( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Basic research into the mechanisms and functions of the brain carried out in the past 25 years has provided evidence that humans do, indeed, experience two ways of knowing. More recent research has explored the nature of the apparent perceptual bias--or way of knowing--of each brain hemisphere, and this information, which has changed thinking about the brain, has profound implications for all educators. A review of research confined to the procedures applied by the brain in processing materials specific to the language arts yields a number of implications for teachers in that field, including the following: (1) all materials should be presented as a whole and as parts of a whole; (2) less material should be covered, allowing students to approach the concepts using as many modalities as possible; (3) students should be allowed to explore new processes and ideas and to play with ideas; (4)reading and writing activities should be extended to include informal conversation, rhythmic and physical interpretations, and creative dramatics activities; (5) new associations between ideas should be encouraged, and their expression rewarded; and (6) literature rather than basal readers, should be the choice of materials for all language arts activities.
