This book provides practical direction for religious educators in teaching heterogeneous groups of learners by employing a broad range of teaching and learning approaches. The booklet explains the attributes of multiple intelligence theory, including the seven types of intelligence, and provides suggestions for engaging students in each intelligence area. The seven intelligences include linguistics, musical, logical-mathematical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal. Twelve sample lessons calling for the application of different types of intelligences at educational levels from early childhood through adulthood are given. Strategies that can be applied across the curriculum are described. Contains 15 references. (RJC)
