                       Who is Dr. Howard

 Dr. Howard Gardner
Multiple Intelligences
Presentation Objectives
 The student will
   Identify the person who developed the Theory of
    Multiple Intelligences.
   Describe the eight commonly identified
   Explain why it is important for teachers to
    design lessons and assessments that address
    different intelligences.
Theory of Multiple Intelligences

     Developed by Howard Gardner,
      Professor, Harvard Graduate School
      of Education
     Presented in Frames of Mind: The
      Theory of Multiple Intelligences,
     Presents many kinds of intelligence
     Identified 7 intelligences originally,
      expanded to 8 now commonly
Dr. Gardner believes schools

 Value people who are
  and linguistically

 Should also value
  people who show gifts
  in other areas.
What are the Multiple Intelligences?

 Logical-mathematical
                          Intrapersonal
 Interpersonal
                          Verbal-
 Spatial                  Linguistic

 Musical-Rhythmic        Bodily-

  instructional strategies incorporating these
 Should use a variety of assessments so
  students can show what they know using
  their multiple intelligences.
Classroom Strategies for Teachers
to Support Students

    Logical-mathematical
      Present information and have students
        find sequences, cause and effect
    Interpersonal
      Provide students with time to work with a
        partner on a project
    Spatial
      Bring in artifacts and pictures to show;
        have students create models
    Musical-Rhythmic
      Use songs and chants to introduce and
        retain information
More Classroom Strategies to
Support Students
  Intrapersonal
    Provide students with time to reflect and write in
  Verbal-Linguistic
    Hold discussion groups, provide supplemental
  Bodily-Kinesthetic
    Have students do role-plays and engage in
  Naturalistic
    Explore the natural environment; interact with
      plants and animals
