"The importance of "See Hear Feel Film" is the integration of knowledge with feelings and action. Building student confidence, imagination, vocabulary, and helping them learn the forms stories can take, are more than enough, but this program goes further. The children feel what they create and what they see. They are asked to integrate in their brains the learning (through the Left and Right Hemispheres) with feeling and action. That is the genius of Anne Marie Santoro, she integrated the learning in all areas of the brain.
When children go to what they feel, they tap into motivation, pleasure, long term memory, happiness, emotions, all the abilities that lie in the Limbic brain of the heart's intelligence. These are basic to the learning process.
When children are happy, they learn. When children are treated with love and respect, they learn. When children are the owners of their learning, they will always remember what they are creating.
That is the brain of Action. It is the R-System brain of behavior. Children love to be active in their own learning and to create makes them proud.
It happens when children
• Learn with reason and imagination
• Feel all they do and see
• And become the center of their own creations.
See Hear Feel Film is what I call a successful program for learning!
