Different ways I think about my blog.
1) Left-Directed (logical, analytical)
Read enough indexed, and you too will start making Venn Diagrams to visualize any situation.
2) R-Directed (random, creative)

I think that teachers need a natural ability to see things from different perspectives. It helps us reach students who learn differently from us. This is on my mind because I spent last week teaching stacked bar charts to a room of mostly R-Directed middle schoolers. I think they learned a bunch, but while I love a great graph, I’m not sure they do (yet!).
Do you think interpreting data on a graph is a left-brained task?
