Fact of the Week #22

Fact of the Week #22: Development of the right Brain and Right/Left Brain connections: "We all have two hemispheres in our brains. T he left hemisphere is verbal, analytical, logical, rational, and linear;the right hemisphere is intuitive, creative holistic, spatial, and visual. In order to function anywhere near our full potential, we need to utilize our entire brain and to train the two hemispheres to work together.  Yet, most schools spend over 95% of the time in left-brain activity and almost no time developing the right brain and the connections between the two hemispheres. This results in "Cookie-Cutter Kids" instead of 'creative students who can think outside the box". It is generally agreed that training in the Arts offers the best approach to developing the right brain."  www.artsattack.com
