3 Learning Outcomes Learning Outcomes Understand the concept of Multiple Intelligences (MI) Understand the concept of Multiple Intelligences (MI) Relate class activities and assessments to Multiple Intelligences Relate class activities and assessments to Multiple Intelligences Create a lesson incorporating MI Create a lesson incorporating MI

4 Multiple Intelligences (Gardner) “Intelligence is displayed, discovered, and developed through the context of meaningful, culturally significant activities.” Howard Gardner

8 Verbal/Linguistic Intelligence Highly developed auditory skills and are generally elegant speakers Highly developed auditory skills and are generally elegant speakers Think in words rather than pictures Think in words rather than pictures Skills include listening, speaking, writing, story telling, explaining, teaching, using humor, analyzing language usage, etc. Skills include listening, speaking, writing, story telling, explaining, teaching, using humor, analyzing language usage, etc.

9 Logical/Mathematical Intelligence Think conceptually in logical and numerical patterns making connections between pieces of information Think conceptually in logical and numerical patterns making connections between pieces of information Curious about the world around them, ask lots of questions & like to do experiments Curious about the world around them, ask lots of questions & like to do experiments Skills include problem solving, classifying and categorizing information, working with abstract concepts, etc. Skills include problem solving, classifying and categorizing information, working with abstract concepts, etc.

10 Visual/Spatial Intelligence Tend to think in pictures and create vivid mental images to retain information Tend to think in pictures and create vivid mental images to retain information Enjoy looking at maps, charts, pictures, videos, and movies Enjoy looking at maps, charts, pictures, videos, and movies Skills include puzzle building, reading, writing, understanding charts and graphs, sketching, painting, manipulating images, constructing, fixing, designing practical objects, interpreting visual images Skills include puzzle building, reading, writing, understanding charts and graphs, sketching, painting, manipulating images, constructing, fixing, designing practical objects, interpreting visual images

11 Musical/Rhythmic Intelligence Tend to think in musical sounds, rhythms, and patterns Tend to think in musical sounds, rhythms, and patterns Respond to music Respond to music May be sensitive to environmental sounds (e.g. crickets, bells, dripping taps) May be sensitive to environmental sounds (e.g. crickets, bells, dripping taps) Skills include singing, whistling, playing musical instruments, recognizing tonal patterns, composing music, remembering melodies, understanding the structure and rhythm of music Skills include singing, whistling, playing musical instruments, recognizing tonal patterns, composing music, remembering melodies, understanding the structure and rhythm of music

12 Bodily/Kinesthetic Intelligence Tend to express themselves through movement Tend to express themselves through movement Tend to have a good sense of balance and eye-hand co-ordination (e.g., ball play, balancing beams) Tend to have a good sense of balance and eye-hand co-ordination (e.g., ball play, balancing beams) Remember and process information through movement Remember and process information through movement Skills include dancing, physical co-ordination, sports, hands on experimentation, using body language, crafts, acting, miming, using their hands to create or build Skills include dancing, physical co-ordination, sports, hands on experimentation, using body language, crafts, acting, miming, using their hands to create or build

13 Intrapersonal Intelligence Try to understand their inner feelings, dreams, relationships with others, and strengths and weaknesses Try to understand their inner feelings, dreams, relationships with others, and strengths and weaknesses Skills include recognizing their own strengths and weaknesses, reflecting and analyzing themselves, awareness of their inner feelings, desires and dreams, evaluating their thinking patterns, reasoning with themselves, understanding their role in relationship to others Skills include recognizing their own strengths and weaknesses, reflecting and analyzing themselves, awareness of their inner feelings, desires and dreams, evaluating their thinking patterns, reasoning with themselves, understanding their role in relationship to others

15 Developing a Unit Goal: explore learning through all intelligences Goal: explore learning through all intelligences Design lessons to approach all intelligences Design lessons to approach all intelligences Use range of activities (individual problem solving, working as a team) Use range of activities (individual problem solving, working as a team) Assess learning through multiple measures Assess learning through multiple measures Backward Design Where are you headed? (outcomes) Where are you headed? (outcomes)

16 Activities should be SMART Specific Specific Measurable Measurable Achievable Achievable Realistic Realistic Time Bound Time Bound

17 A ctivities should be SMART 2. SWOT 3. FRANK 4. SILLY 5. DO-ABLE

18 Assessment (multiple measures) Tests must measure what we value (learning outcomes) Tests must measure what we value (learning outcomes) Every unit should have multiple measures of assessment (e.g., tests, essays, presentations, portfolios) Every unit should have multiple measures of assessment (e.g., tests, essays, presentations, portfolios) Assessments should have corresponding rubrics Assessments should have corresponding rubrics

19 Bloom’s Taxonomy Levels go from lowest to highest: Knowledge Evaluation Knowledge = Remembering Knowledge = Remembering Comprehension = Understanding Comprehension = Understanding Application = Solving Application = Solving Analysis = Analyzing Analysis = Analyzing Synthesis = Creating Synthesis = Creating Evaluation = Judging Evaluation = Judging Benjamin Bloom

20 Activity: Design a Lesson Select a lesson Select a lesson Identify the lesson’s outcome(s) Identify the lesson’s outcome(s) Choose 3 intelligences to apply to lesson Choose 3 intelligences to apply to lesson Incorporate these 3 intelligences into lesson’s presentation/activities Incorporate these 3 intelligences into lesson’s presentation/activities Design outcome(s) assessments that employ multiple measures Design outcome(s) assessments that employ multiple measures
