I have been thinking about various learning modalities ever since I attended a NASA presentation on gender, handedness, math, and learning.

How can we as teachers account for all the variables for "Why Johnny can't Read"? Giving students the option to choose the way they demonstrate proficiency will build their confidence and their excitement about learning.
