Visual people can feel a little bit of anxiety when it comes to writing assignments. Since visual learners operate out of the right side of their brains and the right side of the brain is all about pictures, using words to describe these pictures and organizing these words into a coherent body of writing can become a very cumbersome and laborious endeavor.
Many of the ideas that I have shared with you throughout our summer Brain Drain series are excellent tools for your visual learner to use throughout the school year to reinforce those new concepts that they will inevitably be learning, and possibly having difficulty grasping.
Visual thinkers have a lot of ideas happening all the time- but the ideas are pictures inside their head. Writing requires them to translate their images into words and get them on paper. A great way to help them translate those images into words is to have them start by drawing a picture.
