Your Right and Left Brain</li></ul>How can each of these help us with learning the right stuff?<br />
Learn How to Learn<br />We must constantly absorb things by teaching ourselves. We do this by learning “new ways of doing old things or new ways of doing new things” (Friedman, 2006, pg.302).<br />You have to love or enjoy learning.<br />

Passion and Curiosity cont…<br />Teachers must connect with their students because if they don’t the material will not get across.<br />Teachers must motivate kids to try their best.<br />
Liking People<br />You have to know how to communicate and interact with people.<br />You could teach this to students by:<br /><ul><li>Telling them to meet new and diverse people, and learn new hobbies to meet new people.
Show them how to treat others the way they would want to be treated.
Explain to them that talking to others can help them to interact more with others.</li></li></ul><li>Your Left and Right Brain<br />Left Brain:<br /><ul><li>Sequence
Synthesis</li></ul>What do we need to do?<br />We need to use our right brain skills more. In order to use our right brain skills we must do things that we love or like to do.<br />
Your Left and Right Brain cont…<br />How to apply it in the classroom:<br /><ul><li>Allow the students to be artistic by allowing them to paint, make up a story, or anything that is creative.
Do different types of activities that go along with lessons in the classroom that way every student can be creative in many different ways.</li></li></ul><li>Reference<br />Friedman, T. L. (2006). The world is flat. New York: Farrar, <br /> Straus and Giroux<br />
