Seven Windows to a Child's World: 100 Ideas for the Multiple Intelligences Classroom. Pre K-3. First Printing.
O'Connor, Anna T.; Callahan-Young, Sheila
While traditional schooling has focused mainly on math and linguistic skills, psychologist Howard Gardner suggests that there are at least five additional ways of learning. This curriculum guide applies Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences to the kindergarten class, providing teachers with a practical, thematic approach that will challenge children's thinking. The five units include three lessons for each of the intelligences--linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial/artistic, inter- and intra/personal/social, spatical/assembly, bodily/kinesthetic, and musical. Some lessons include homework designed to strengthen the communication between home and school, and some include designated portfolio samples with format suggestions for collection throughout the school year. The five units are: (1) Self; (2) Fall; (3) Day/Night; (4) Winter; and (5) Castles. Each unit includes a bibliography. (HTH)
