what is a danger of being field independent or field dependent and the reflection in classroom?positive and negative sides?
I don't think research is clear on this at all. A number of studies with mixed results have been conducted in the last thirty years. Back in the eighties, there were a couple of studies that indicated when students and teachers were matched in field dependence-indepencence, there were matches in cognitive learning styles also. STudies since then seem not to support this.
I suspect your text or your professor has given you some clue to the answer they want...go with it. However, in the real world of classrooms full of kids, learning styles, culture, thinking styles will vary, and a good teacher recognizes it and allows for individualizations.
