Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom.
The model presented in this book provides a language for talking about the inner gifts of children, especially those students who have accumulated labels such as Learning Disabled (LD) and Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD) during their school careers, and describes how educators can bring Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences (MI), a means of mapping the broad range of abilities that humans possess, into the classroom every day. The MI theory is described as a philosophy of education, an attitude toward learning, or a meta-model of education in the spirit of John Dewey's ideas on progressive education rather than a set program of fixed techniques and strategies. The MI are grouped into seven comprehensive categories--linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, and intrapersonal. The volume provides concrete examples of how MI can be applied to curriculum development, teaching strategies, classroom management, assessment, special education, and other areas, along with information on how to develop MI lessons, and conduct MI assessments. A basic reading list on MI, related books on MI teaching, and examples of MI lessons and programs are appended. (Contains approximately 75 references.) (LL)
