“It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.” - Ann Landers

This post looks at what neurologists call executive function and eduation calls higher order thinking. A list of nine "ways to describe some of the executive functions when relating the arts to creativity and the thinking processes" is provided which includes:

* Conceptual thinking and transfer of knowledge

* Judgmen

* Critical analysis

* Induction and deduction

If you are interested in learning more about how creativity correlates with academic achievement as well as social and emotional success and how it helps to develop skills that support higher order thinking (a hot topic with Common Core) click through to the article.

Some of the key myths:

* Some people are left-brained and some are right-brained

* Male and female brains are radically different

* We use only 10 percent of our brains

 

Be wary of product claims that they are proven by brain research. From the article: "Neuroimaging technologies have really only developed over the last 20 years, so virtually nothing is 'proven' at this point."
