Hi Gang,
I don't remember if Bonnie Bracey posted this on ArtsEdNet, but I saw it on
one of my lists and think that it is thanks to Bonnie. This link to PBS has
some GREAT stuff on brain research as it applies to teaching. The central
point it that kids need to VISUALIZE to access information in the brain.
Boy, if ever we needed justification for the value of the arts, creativity
and visualization, this article is IT!!
