Multiple Intelligences: A Collection. K-12.
Fogarty, Robin, Ed.; Bellanca, James, Ed.
Divided into five concise sections, this book introduces and examines the personage of Howard Gardner and his theory of multiple intelligences. The articles explore practical applications and implications of the theory and provide supporting evidence applicable to all children. Special applications of the multiple intelligences theory, including its use in goal setting, assessment, and curriculum integration, are also covered. The first section introduces Howard Gardner and profiles his personality. Section two presents three papers by Gardner that help readers get an in-depth look at the thinking behind the theory. The third section describes five multiple intelligence "best practices" and examines the overall impact of Gardner's theory on the contemporary classroom. Expanding on the practical applications of multiple intelligences, section four focuses on three authors' positions on the usefulness of the multiple intelligences approach for all children, regardless of background or label. This section reinforces the idea that all children possess multiple intelligences, from the "learning disabled" to the "gifted." The collection concludes with an array of essays and commentaries on the numerous uses of multiple intelligences theory. The ideas presented in the final section span the spectrum from goal setting to technology integration to innovative assessment alternatives. (AA)
