History for the Right Brain! History for the Left Brain!
In 1981, Dr. Roger Sperry won the Nobel Prize for discovering that each hemisphere of the brain "thinks" in a different way. The verbal left brain hemisphere processes words and the visual right brain hemisphere processes pictures.
Dr. Jody Potts, historian and left/right brain learning specialist, pioneered the integration of left and right brain learning concepts with the teaching and writing of history.
Dr. Potts' multimedia U.S. history program Adventure Tales of America provides whole brain learning by using a text/illustration format: words for the left brain and pictures for the right brain.
The Key? Engaging both sides of the brain by presenting history in words and pictures simultaneously. As one high-scoring student explained, "The pictures made it interesting and it just stuck in my mind." See for yourself how much more you understand, learn, and retain from reading Adventure Tales of America, the first U.S. history program featuring left and right brain strategies for verbal and visual learners.
