Frayer Extension Activity: “The Way I See It” How to use: Select topic or event that can be viewed differently by various people or groups Determine four people or groups who hold different opinions or perspectives As students read the selection, have them make notes about how each group or person would view the event or issue. Tips: Consider leading a discussion on "perspective" before beginning the activity. Can be used to solve a problem and how different people or groups might solve a problem.
Taking sides…. how the two sides process information that is! Left Brain Logical Sequential Rational Analytical Objective Looks at parts Right Brain Random Intuitive Holistic Synthesizing Subjective Looks at wholes
The Right Brain vs Left Brain test Do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise? If clockwise, then you use more of the RIGHT side of the brain. Most of us would see the dancer turning counter- clockwise. This is using the LEFT side of the brain. Try to focus and change the direction. See if you can do it!
Why should we as teachers want to better understand how the brain works? Share your thoughts with your neighbor!
We must embrace All Learners in our Classrooms! Auditory Learners (Learn by listening and speaking) Hear Visual Learners (Learn by observing) See Tactile Learners (Learn by manipulating objects) Touch Kinesthetic Learners (Learn by performing or rehearsal ) Move
Embraces: Auditory learners, Visual learners, Tactile learners, Kinesthetic learners … All FOUR Modalities: AVTK Incorporates whole language strategies, writing process steps, and learning styles elements into an activity. Enhance instruction and bridge the gap into other content areas.
