Re: Visualization Exercises


Date: Sat May 25 2002 - 11:16:47 PDT

   I sometimes use visualization. I don't have a book as a reference, but we learned about it in a grad class. One suggestion that has helped me was to make sure I address all of the five senses into the visualization---sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. The theory is that the more senses we involve, the more likely we are to remember, discover and imagine.
   Hope that helps.

  Subject: Visualization Exercises

  I am interested in encorporating visualization exercises into my daily classwork - I'm unsure how to approach it - I want to foster students ability to see in their mind's eye and I don't exactly know how to structure it and how to make it accountable. I've thought about using books on tape where they might depict a scene and have the students illustrate what they hear or having them work in partners to discribe something that the other student might know like what their room might look like. Do any of the teachers out their do this kind of exercise, or something like it. What do you do and do you have any suggestions? I've had an interest in fostering creativity so I've been reading books like "Sparks of Genius" and "The Brain Workout Book" If any of you also have any other book suggestions that deal with this subject let me know. Thanks so much.
