Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This paper reviews research on cerebral dominance and considers the relevance of this research to education. Conclusions from research are outlined and the implications of hemisphericity are discussed for educators. The research cited reviews the findings of neuroscientists that specifically relates to the functioning of the two hemispheres of the brain. Materials selected for inclusion in this paper speak to the research that either implies or states strategies that teachers may apply to classroom practice. To facilitate an understanding of the functioning of the two hemispheres, a portion of the paper speaks to the generalized functions of each hemisphere on an individual basis and addresses the need for teaming of both hemispheres for the development of competent, independent, and effective learners.
