The continuing discussion on left-handedness amuses me! Someone asked if a
person can have different dominance in hands and feet - the research answer
is yes. The dominant eye can be either left or right as well and doesn't have
to agree with the hand either. I read an entire book on the subject of
left-handedness as basically being based on brain damage, escept for a very
small portion of the population!! Imagine how I could have felt if my
left-handed father hadn't been the smartest person I had ever known.

I so go agree with the person who made the comment (which I also made, sorry
to repeat myself) that each learner is unique. That's one strong reason for
including artistic expression in the curriculum. I personally love the fact
(now that I am not a teenager) that I have a unique approach to the world and
to learning. It is so important to help those who work with growing minds to
remember this central fact so that they can help to grow those minds rather
than stunt them.
