Seven Ways of Teaching: The Artistry of Teaching with Multiple Intelligences.
This guide provides a rationale and approach for translating Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences into classroom practice. The introduction explains Gardner's theory, gives the definitions of the seven intelligences he identifies--verbal/linguistic, logical/mathematical, visual/spatial, body/kinesthetic, musical/rhythmic, interpersonal, intrapersonal--and defines specific capacities that are related to these intelligences. The seven chapters present model lessons that emphasize one of the intelligences as the primary mode of knowing and learning. Each of these lessons includes: (1) a lesson pallet that helps teachers select the appropriate tools for the intelligence being emphasized; (2) a brief overview of the processes of awakening, amplifying, teaching and transferring as they apply to the intelligence being emphasized in the lesson; (3) the lesson procedures; (4) suggestions for adapting the lesson to needs different from the proposed grade level; (5) assessment tips; (6) lesson pallets designed to help teachers reflect on how a past or future lesson could be restructured to incorporate the intelligence being emphasized in the lesson; and (7) a chart of ideas for lessons in a given intelligence area. The appendices contain helpful examples of lesson procedures and graphic organizers, a glossary, and 110 references. (AA)
