This section will treat a new trend in learning: Brain-based learning, which is also called Whole-brain learning, Accelerated learning, Sugestopedia, etc.
These magic stories are the fruit of Witch Hazel's morbid imagination... but they also contain some precious truths. Witch Hazel, (which is myself... you know... I like speaking in 3rd person...) knows that when you use stories or metaphors to illustrate difficult concepts nobody can accuse you of being boring or self-assuming. On the contrary, everybody loves listening to tales, whatever age they are, especially if the ingredients are: magic, humour and fantasy. So, turn off the TV and listen to Witchy's fairy tales!

Seven dwarfs plus one: This is a story about Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory. And also about seven plus one mysterious dwarfs who live in a magic village...

  Flexible tale: The story narrates the adventurous events in the life of an unlucky beautiful girl who finally, as it happens in fairy tales, finds her true love and lives a long happy life with him. But it is also a metaphor on the necessity of acquiring the right dose of flexibility, both as teachers and human beings, as NLP predicates.
Witchy says: "I'm sure you all want to know everything about this teaching sorcery! Well, NLP is not so new as it used to be in the eighties or nineties but it still has a lot of secret weapons hidden up its sleeves... Don't waste any time and go straight to visit NLP magic village!"
