3 Multiple Intelligences: The Theory Pluralistic view of the mindPeople have different cognitive strengths and contrasting cognitive stylesThere are biological links to particular intelligences
4 What Is An Intelligence? Raw, biological potentialsEach must have an identifiable core operation or set of operations
5 Linguistic Intelligence Sensitivity to phonological featuresA specific part of the brain is responsible for grammatical sentences
6 Linguistic ExamplesPoets such as T. S. EliotJournalists and Writers
7 Intrapersonal Intelligence A correlative ability turned inwardA capacity to form an accurate model of oneself and be able to use that model to operate effectively in one’s life
8 Logical-Mathematical Intelligence The logical and mathematical ability as well as scientific abilityExamples: scientists, mathematicians
9 Spatial IntelligenceThe ability to form a mental model of a spatial world and be able to maneuver and operate using that model.Examples: Sailors, engineers, surgeons, sculptors,and painters
10 Musical Intelligence Sensitivity to pitch relations Examples: Musicians and composers
11 Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence Ability to solve problems using one’s whole body.Examples: Dancers, athletes, surgeons, and craftspeople
12 Interpersonal Intelligence Ability to understand other people, what motivates them, how they work, and how to work cooperatively with them.Examples: politicians, teachers, and clinicians.
13 The Multiple Intelligence School Based on:Not all people have the same interests and abilities and not all of us learn in the same way.No one person can learn everythingWhen I plan my lessons I take these assumptions into consideration. Inside my lesson plan book I have a Multiple Intelligences Smart Card which gives me activities I can do that address specific intelligences.
14 Educational Implications Curriculum should be presented in a plethora of waysAssessment of students should be developmentally appropriate
15 My Personal Philosophy I believe children have individual learning styles and every child can learn.I agree with the theory of multiple intelligences and have seen evidence of these intelligences in my classroom with my children.
