You Have What It Takes: Teaching Struggling Learners

Don’t miss out on this richly informational series of e-vents!
Teaching the Right -Brained Child, Part I
“Visual memory is far superior to auditory memory,” says Peter Russell, author of The Brain Book. Half of the population is right-brain dominant and half is left-brain dominant. If you have more than one child, you likely have a right-brained learner in your midst. Auditory learning doesn’t come as naturally to these wonderful children as it does to their left-brained siblings. Rather, they store information in their long-term memory by using pictures, color, story or emotion attached to the facts they need to learn. Unfortunately, many traditional curriculums are designed for auditory learners. In this workshop you will learn how to identify the right-brained child and incorporate simple teaching techniques, such as visual spelling strategies, that cause the words to “stick instead of slip.” You can easily train your child’s all-important photographic memory—it’s one of the best learning gifts you can give him. Help your child get in touch with the “smart part” of himself.
Teaching the Right-Brained Child, Part II
Once you have identified your right-brained learners, become an expert at training those children to use their superior photographic memory. Teach them how to efficiently use the Universal Memory Storage System. Your child will develop the lifelong skill of studying for tests by taking a picture of the contents of a chapter. (These memory techniques are commonly used by Cambridge University students to reduce studying time.) And you will learn techniques for teaching Right-Brain Math—you’ll be able to show your child how to visually store math facts by putting “velcro” on these processes for easy storage and retrieval. No more math phobia! Using these powerful strategies, your right-brained children will truly “learn how to learn,” and confirm to themselves that they are smart! Learning doesn’t have to be so hard!
