3 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

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

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

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

7 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 one’s life

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

9 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

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 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.

14 Educational Implications
Curriculum should be presented in a plethora of ways Assessment 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.
