  1. Loyal Customer

    The author describes how to motivate self-directed or independent research related to a student’s strongest “thinking mode,” which may lie in one of four quadrants:
    A) Descriptive – The Thinker (likes written facts and charts, values accuracy)
    B) Co-relational – The Mover (likes to gather data through a survey, well-organized)
    C) People-oriented – The Nurturer (likes case studies and field studies)
    D) Original — The Creator (likes an experimental approach)

    The book also suggests products for each of these quadrants that require research but would not be “copyable,” e.g., a biographical poem about a notable person, or an “eyewitness script” about an historic event.
