Playing with the sunlight and the reflective surface...focused on the edge...coaxing color density...yielded an abstract of sorts, diverging from the reality.

In trying to personalize learning situations, teachers often utilize either a formal or informal method to determine a student's preference for abstract (vs. concrete) thinking...a philosophical versus literal stance. Despite my push to blur the edges and think 'outside of the proverbial box', my strength (at least, initially) is to take a hands-on and literal approach to learning. My need to interact with the tangible is usually a prerequisite for the abstract to occur. Meta thinking and reflective writing are good exercises in my developmental process. Naples, FL
