If the Shoe Fits...How To Develop Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom.
Chapman, Carolyn
This guide provides a rationale and approach for translating Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences into classroom practice. Chapter 1 explains Gardner's theory and gives the definitions of the seven intelligences he identifies: verbal/linguistic, musical/rhythmic, logical/mathematical, visual/spatial, bodily/kinesthetic, intrapersonal, and interpersonal. Chapters 2 through 8 are dedicated to each of the intelligences and demonstrate a variety of ways to understand and implement Gardner's theory. Chapters include sections that: (1) describe the characteristics of a particular intelligence; (2) explain its developmental path; (3) offer a global understanding of the intelligences; (4) illustrate how people tend to use this intelligence to solve problems; (5) tell what helps and hinders a student with this intelligence; (6) offer examples of situations that enhance learning; (7) give strategies to capitalize on a student's talents; (8) outline methods to help special students learn in ways compatible with their strengths (9) list several teaching techniques for use in the classroom; (10) explain exactly how to foster an environment that stimulates these seven intelligences; and (11) provide sample lessons and activities that target this intelligence. Chapter 9 delineates a number of methods to integrate curriculum and instruction. Finally, chapter 10 addresses the grading dilemma with practical ideas for assessing the multiple gifts of learner. Contains 68 references. (AA)
