Proulx-Schirduan, Victoria; Shearer, C. Branton; Case, Karen I.
Teachers College Press
This practical guide describes ways of working with learners diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) by using Multiple Intelligences Theory. Written for all educators as well as parents, it examines curricular, instructional, school partnering, and leadership issues that may arise for these students in grades K-8. Supported by real-life examples, it presents constructive strategies to help teachers work with ADHD students in ways that honor their strengths and allow for meaningful inclusion in the general education classroom. As viewed through the lens of an MI curriculum, ADHD is not a disadvantage; it is an integral component of the way a student processes information and makes sense of the world. This thoroughly readable resource features: (1) An innovative application of MI Theory based on the authors' extensive research and their experience working with students, teachers, and administrators; (2) Practical, tested strategies and materials for teachers who work with one of today's most prevalent and challenging school populations; (3) Free online MIDAS assessments, one for the teacher and one for the student with ADHD; and (4) Hundreds of case studies and examples that illustrate how MI Theory can apply to all students in a general education classroom.
