4 Multiple Intelligences: The Theory Pluralistic view of the mind People have different cognitive strengths and contrasting cognitive styles There are biological links to particular intelligences

5 What Is An Intelligence? Raw, biological potentials Each must have an identifiable core operation or set of operations

6 Linguistic Intelligence Sensitivity to phonological features A specific part of the brain is responsible for grammatical sentences

7 Linguistic Examples Poets such as T. S. Eliot Journalists and Writers

8 Intrapersonal Intelligence A correlative ability turned inward A capacity to form an accurate model of oneself and be able to use that model to operate effectively in ones life

9 Logical-Mathematical Intelligence The logical and mathematical ability as well as scientific ability Examples: scientists, mathematicians

10 Spatial Intelligence The 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

11 Musical Intelligence Sensitivity to pitch relations Examples: Musicians and composers

12 Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence Ability to solve problems using ones whole body. Examples: Dancers, athletes, surgeons, and craftspeople

13 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.

14 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 everything When 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.

15 Educational Implications Curriculum should be presented in a plethora of ways Assessment of students should be developmentally appropriate

16 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.
