of handwriting; teaching spelling using imagery; incorporating mnemonics, rhyme, and other tricks that

Upside-Down Brilliance: The Visual Spatial Learner
By Linda Kreger Silverman
Do you know things without being able to explain how or why? Do you solve problems in unusual ways?
Do you think in pictures rather than in words? If so, you are not alone. One-third of the population

your students -probably the ones you are not reaching - are visual-spatial learners.
Dr. Linda Silverman coined the term "visual-spatial learner" in 1981 to describe the unique gifts of
people who think in images. They get the big picture because they see the world through artists' eyes.
They remember what they see, but forget what they hear.
