  • 1. Why do we bother?ANDWhy should we take class time?

2. Dr. Howard Gardner, author,Frames of Mind and MultipleIntelligences: The Theory inPractice Intelligence is the capacity to do something useful in the society in which we live. Intelligence is the ability to respond successfully to new situations and the capacity to learn from ones past experiences. 3. Howard GardnersMULTIPLE INTELLIGENCE TEST Published in Gardners Frames of Mind(1983) Created to contribute to field of psychology Quickly embraced by education Howard Gardner (currently) Professor Harvard Graduate School of Education Adjunct Boston University School of Medicine Senior Director Harvard Project Zero Honorary degrees from at least 20 foreign institutions Written over 20 highly regarded books on the human mind, learning and behavior 4. Howard Gardner All of that, in spite of his self description, in hisautobiography I was born cross-eyed, myopic, color-blind and unable to recognize faces. There is hope for us all. 5. What does it do? Provides absolutely pivotal and inescapable indication as to STUDENTS Preferred learning style Behavioral style Working style Natural strengths It indicates not only capabilities, but also the manner or method in which a person prefers to learn and develop their strengths and also work on their weaknesses. 6. Examples A person that is strong Musically Weak Numerically Will develop numerically through Music Not by being bombarded with NUMBERS 1234..7890 7. Examples A person that is weak Spatially Strong Numerically Will be more likely to develop spatial ability If explained and developed by using numbers and logic Not by Being asked to pack a suitcase 8. Examples A person that is weak Bodily/kinesthetic Strong Numerically Might best be encouraged to explore numbers through Learning the mathematical and scientific relationships between Exercise Diet and health 9. Happy relaxed people learnmore readily than unhappystressful people! The pressure of possible failure and being forced to act and think unnaturally, have a significant negative influence on learning effectiveness. . .MOTIVATION 10. SIMPLE HUH? A persons strength is also a learning channel A persons weakness is not a great learning channel. 11. Develop students through their strengthsand we not only stimulate theirdevelopmentwe also make them happy(because everyone enjoys learning intheir strength areas)and we also growtheir confidence and lift their belief(because they see they are doingwell, and they get told they are doingwell.) 12. Creating a Class full ofSTELLAR STUDENTS Developing a students strengths will increase their response to the learning experience, which helps them to develop their weaknesses as well as their strengths. 13. A person is intelligent orunintelligent. RIDICULOUSStudents possess a set of intelligencesnot just one typeand level of intelligence. Intelligence is not a single scalable aspect of a studentsstyle and capability THE FACT IS THAT WE ARE ALL INTELLIGENT INDIFFERENT WAYS!!! 14. Using your MULTIPLEINTELLIGENCES results,and your personal learningexperiences. . . You will get evidence into the inescapable indication as to how preferred learning styles, as well as behavioral and working styles, can be used to enhance your natural strengths. 15. The pressure of failure and being forced to act and think unnaturally. . . have a significant negative influence on learning! 16.

Many teachers see the theory as simple common sense. Some say that it validates what they already know: thatstudents learn in different ways. The challenge that this brings for educators is to knowwhich students learn in which ways. 26. TO BEGIN TEACHING WITH THESEVEN INTELLIGENCES, TRY THEFOLLOWING:the seven intelligences and the different ways we Teach your students aboutlearn. Help them get better at using these different ways. Vary the lessons so students have an opportunity to use all seven intelligences. Instead of always using traditional tests, have students demonstrate whattheyve learned by using different intelligences. Help students see how much they have learned by keeping samples of work,journals, and portfolios. Give students a chance to use the different intelligences every day. Discuss with them which intelligence they use for each activity. Ask students how you can test what theyve learned. To close a unit, have students do projects, exhibits, or performances todemonstrate what they genuinely understand about what they have learned. Check the students interest inventory to see if there is a coorelation with theintelligence. Help st
