Art Markman Blogs in Psychology Today

Posted: August 1, 2009

"School is back in session in Texas and many other parts of the country, and kids all over are flocking back to the classroom. The setup of a typical classroom is pretty similar to what it has been for 100 years. The teacher sits in the front of the room. The students are in desks in rows.

Setting up a classroom in this way assumes that the purpose of school is to train the minds of students. And as far as it goes, that is probably right. The problem is that we also assume that training the mind is something separate from the body."...Art Markman, "Educating mind and body I: Body affects memory" in Psychology Today online.
