Teaching for Multiple Intelligences. Fastback 342.
Lazear, David G.
Over the past 50 years, brain researchers have stated that human beings probably use less than 1 percent of the brain's potential, and research findings about human intelligence have transformed almost all previous definitions of intelligence. This booklet addresses the following key findings in intelligence research: intelligence is not fixed or static; intelligence can be learned and taught; and intelligence is a multidimensional phenomenon that occurs at multiple levels of the brain/mind/body system. After this discussion of the research, the publication is divided into five parts: (1) "Overview of the Seven Intelligences" (verbal/linguistic, logical/mathematical, visual/spatial, body/kinesthetic, musical/rhythmic, interpersonal intelligence, and intrapersonal intelligence); (2) "Teaching for Multiple Intelligences: A New Look at the Curriculum" (includes an exercise on how one can teach for multiple intelligences in one's curriculum); (3) "New Instructional Methods for Teaching with Multiple Intelligences"; (4) "Teaching about Multiple Intelligences: Re-inventing the Learning Process"; and (5) "A Multi-Modal Approach to Assessment" (includes techniques for student evaluation and teacher self-assessment). (Contains 27 references.) (LL)
