Left Brain vs Right Brain Education in Fiction and Nonfiction

Left Brain vs Right BrainHowever, in my fourth novel, Between Now and Forever, where my protagonist Marjorie Veil takes on a class of troubled middle school students with psychic abilities, a question that naturally arises and becomes a major conflict in the story is the validity of emphasizing left brain vs right brain education in our schools.

Why Left Brain vs Right Brain?

The following video featuring Daniel Pink helps spark the fire

As does Pink’s book, A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule The Future.

In it, he tells us that “The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: artists, inventors, storytellers-creative and holistic right-brain thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn’t.”

My protagonist and antagonist in Between Now and Forever present valid arguments for both – arguments that almost take them too far.

As always, thanks for stopping by.
