Right Brain
Right Brain/Left Brain

Plot on the board where you land on the line.
Left brainRight brain
What does it mean? (cont.)
A middle brain person shares those of both left brain and right brain characteristics.
Middle brain often vacillate between the two hemispheres when making decisions.
Left Brain

What does it mean? (cont.)
A left brain (successive processor) prefers to learn in a step-by-step sequential format, beginning with details leading to a conceptual understanding of a skill.
A right brain (simultaneous processor) prefers to learn beginning with the general concept and then going on to specifics.
Left Brain, Here You Are!
Left brain individuals process information in a linear manner.
They take pieces to the puzzle, line them up, and arrange them in logical order. From this drawing their conclusion to the puzzle.
Left brain persons are list makers. They enjoy making a master schedule and doing daily planning.
Left Brain, Here You Are!
Deal with things the way they are-with reality.
When affected by the environment, left brain people usually adjust to it easily.
Want to know the rules and follow them.
If there are no rules for situations, they will probably make up rules to follow.
Left Brain Characteristics
Analytic reader
Primary reliance on language in thinking and remembering
Prefers talking and writing
Prefers multiple choice test
Controls feelings
Prefers hierarchical authority structures
Talks, and talks, and talks
Sees cause and effect
Draws on previously accumulated, organized information.
Right Brain, Here You Are!
The approach of a right brainer is random.
Because of the random nature of a right brain, they should make list and schedules to help them stay on track.
Right brain people are color sensitive. Try using colors to establish sequences.
Right Brain, Here You Are!
May know what they mean but often have trouble finding the right words.
Right brain individuals need to back up everything visually.
When giving directions, they use their hands and give names of places along the way verses hard north, south, east, west.
Right Brain Characteristics
Right Brain Characteristics
Primary reliance on images in thinking and remembering
Prefers drawing and manipulating objects
Prefers open-ended questions
Free with feelings
Essentially self-acting
Prefers participative authority
Is analogical, sees correspondences and resemblances,
Right Brain Characteristics
Draws on unbounded qualitative patterns that are not organized into sequence, but cluster around images or crystallized feeling.
What does it mean?
An important factor to understanding learning styles is understanding brain functioning.
Both sides of the brain can reason, but by different strategies, and one side may be dominant over the other.
Which Am I?
Left Brain, Here You Are!
Left Brain, Here You Are!
Left brain people have no trouble expressing themselves in words.
When giving directions verbally, left brain people will say blocks to go, directions to turn, and miles to travel.
Left Brain Characteristics
Respond to verbal instructions
Controlled, systematic experiments
Problem solves logically and sequentially looking at the parts of things
Makes objective judgments
Looks at differences
Is planned and structured
Prefers established, certain information.
Right Brain, Here You Are!
Process from a whole to a part, holistically.
Right brain have difficulty in following a lecture unless they are given the big picture first.
Important for a right brainer to read a chapter prior to lecture to better understand what is being discussed.
Right Brain, Here You Are!
Right brain people are concrete.
They want to see, feel, or touch the real object. (buy on-line?)
May have trouble learning to read using phonics.
They prefer to see words in context and to see how formulas work.
Create opportunities for hands on activities to use your right brain.
Right Brain, Here You Are!
Use intuition.
They may know the right answer to a problem, but are not sure how they got it.
On a quiz, they have a gut feeling as to which answers are correct, and they are usually right.
The right side of the brain pays attention to coherence and meaning, tells you if it “feels” right.
Right Brain, Here You Are!
Try to change the environment.
“Save the Forest”, “Save the whales”. They are conservationists.
Above all, they are creative. In order to learn about a certain things, they may become that object in their mind to better understand.
Bill Gates
George W. Bush
Albert Einstein
Salvador Dali
Jimmy Hendrix
Verbal (left) vs. Non-Verbal (right)
Know what they mean but often have trouble finding the right words
Tend to make mental videos
Have trouble expressing themselves in words
Reality Based (left) vs. Fantasy Oriented (right)
Deals with reality
When effected by the environment they usually adjust well
Want to know rules and want to follow them
Know consequences
Constantly needs feed back and reality checks
Ways of Processing Information
Linear vs. Holistic
Sequential vs. Random
Symbolic vs. Concrete
Logical vs. Intuitive
Verbal vs. Non-Verbal
Reality - Based vs. Fantasy - Oriented
Linear (Left) vs.
Holistic (Right)
Processes from part to whole
Takes pieces and lines them up and puts them logical order.
Draws Conclusions
Processes from whole to part
Starts with the answer
Sees the big picture first; not the details
Sequential (Left) vs. Random (Right)
Flit from one task to another
Gets just as much done with out addressed priorities
List maker
Enjoys making a master schedule and daily planning
Complete tasks in order
Symbolic (left) vs. Concrete (right)
Has no trouble processing symbols
Excels at academics by using
letters, words, and mathematical notations
Wants things to be tangible
Wants to
see, feel or touch the real object
May have trouble learning to read phonics

Right Brain
Left Brain
Left Brain Characteristics
Responds to Verbal instructions
Controlled, systematic experiments
Makes objective judgments
Looks at differences
Is planned and structured
Prefers established, certain information
Analytical Reader
Primary reliance on language in thinking and remembering
Controls feelings
Talks often
Is logical, sees cause and effect
Prefers multiple choice tests
Learning Suggestions for Left Brain
Due to left brained people are linear, symbolic, logical, verbal, reality-based, temporal, and sequential they should do th
e easiest questions
first to get the bigger picture on a test.
They tend to make lists, remember symbols and words which are key to helping them take information
. Bright lights while studying in a formal study design.
Right Brain Characteristics
Open-ended, Random
When problem solving, looks for patterns and configurations
Looks at similarities
Is fluid and spontaneous
Free with feelings
Essentially self-acting
Uses images and pictures
Prefers open-ended questions
Primary reliance on images in thinking and remembering
Learning Suggestions for Right Brain
Right brained individuals are more holistic, concrete, random, intuitive, nonverbal, fantasy-oriented, and non-temporal.
They like to look at the big picture instead of details. They should listen to music while they study. Also while listening to someone they tend to look right at the person. A helpful hint would be to use colors to
separate various information.
Logical (left) vs. Intuitive (right)
Unsure about how they got the right answer
Go with gut feeling and are usually right
Pays attention to coherence and meaning
Brain processes in linear, sequential, logical manner
Look for pieces to draw logical conclusion

Usually good spellers because spelling involves sequence.
Left brains also work in the linear and sequential processing of math and following directions.
They have no trouble processing symbols, memorizing vocabulary words and math formulas.
