2 Multiple Intelligences STONE MOUNTAIN MIDDLE SCHOOL April 17, 2008 Presented by Dr. Kenneth J. Rometo

3 What is Intelligence?

4 Is it measured by what score you make on a test? IQ?

5 At some schools, by psychologists and some teachers and administrators, that is exactly how intelligence is measured? Historically, ours included.

6 What is Multiple Intelligences?

7 Per Howard Gardner (1979) Frames of Mind It is the ability to solve problems. It is the ability to fashion a product. It is the ability to make culturally relevant contributions to your community. And it is an ability to identify a new challenge and to pursue it.

8 Intelligence Definition- intelligence means our ability to learn But Multiple Intelligences explains how we learn

9 It’s not how smart we are, it’s how we are smart.

10 Steven J. Gould said “We pass through this world but once. Few tragedies can be more extensive than the stunting of life, few injustices deeper that the denial of an opportunity to strive or even to hope by a limit imposed from without, but falsely identified as lying within” Would you want your area of interest or talent to be considered unimportant or wrong? HOPES, DREAMS, AND TALENTS

11 Did you realize? Children are directly affected by our expectations of them.

12 EVERYONE is smart in some areas and weak in others. Students experience greater self experience when we teach to their areas of strength.
