Your memory & How it Works Prefrontal Cortex Short term or working memory Hippocampus Long term memory Lymbic System Everything passes through it and is given emotional value- fight or flight. Information is there forever, strong emotion, easier to remember. Memory is not a thing, it is a process. It can get better or worse depending on use. “Prior Knowledge” “Emotional Value” Takes 7 repetitions to get from short to long term memory
Left & right “brained” Logic Emotional Math Music Writing Reading Artistic- Drawing Kinesthetic- Athletics “Stupid & Lazy” “Bossy & Arrogant”
Left and right “brained” Logic Emotional Math Musical Instrument Writing Reading Artistic- Drawing Kinesthetic- Athletics Very organized Quiet- introverted On time Fold Exploding backpack Talkers Chronically late Wad Left brain skills can be measured (IQ) and are tested on standardized tests (TAKS, etc.). Right “brained” people have to develop these skills. IT TAKES EFFORT!
Multiple intelligence Logic Emotional 1. Math 2. Linguistic 3. Musical 5. Spatial 4. Kinesthetic 5. Spatial Howard Gardner named 7 types of Your Emotional IQ - Limbic system 6. Inter-personal 7. Intra-personal These are hardest to influence, but, once developed, never disappear. 1-5 are in a part of brain that is easily influenced by environment (parents, friends, etc.) Almost = in both halves Hand the papers out this time!!! 8. Naturalist = let go of the tree!
Left vs. right Interactivepassive Activities that develop left brain intelligence: Math Reading Writing Playing an instrument Listening Stand-up comedy Internet research Games- chess, poker, bridge Activities that “retard” the brain: TV Video games Texting/IM Intelligence- number of nerve pathways and how efficient they are.. Nerve pathways can be developed for right brain intelligence. It takes time, work, and repetition, repetition, repetition….. There is usually a lot of FRUSTRATION involved.
