October 23: Today was my second day of teaching the Dennison Approach to Whole-Brain Learning to a group made up primarily of educators. I led the participants through simple ways to apply movement-based learning and whole-to-parts teaching in the classroom. These techniques are helpful for many aspects of the educational process, from connecting learners with their kinesthetic experience to helping them discover a love of language as they read. As my students experienced the reading, writing, and listening balances, they found for themselves the profound impact of movement on learning, and saw the possibilities for their own students.
