Teaching & Learning through Multiple Intelligences.
Campbell, Linda; Campbell, Bruce; Dickinson, Dee
In his studies of human capacity, Howard Gardner revealed a wider family of human intelligences than previously suggested. Noting that restricting educational programs to focusing on a preponderance of linguistic and mathematical intelligences minimizes the importance of other forms of knowing, this book presents strategies for creating open systems of education utilizing the multiple intelligences philosophy. The book's introduction details each of Gardner's seven intelligences and what the book offers in terms of addressing each intelligence. The succeeding seven chapters correspond to each of these intelligences: (1) verbal-linguistic intelligence and learning processes, focusing on speaking, reading, and writing; (2) logical-mathematical intelligence, focusing on teaching of logic, mathematical processes, working with numbers, and sequencing; (3) kinesthetic intelligence, focusing on drama, creative movement, dance, manipulatives, classroom games, physical education, and exercise; (4) visual-spatial intelligence, focusing on pictorial representation, flow charts, visualization, board and card games, architecture and the visual arts; (5) musical intelligence, focusing on singing, musical notation, curriculum songs, and musical instruments; (6) interpersonal intelligence, focusing on positive interpersonal environments, conflict management, learning through service, appreciating differences, multiple perspectives, problem-solving, and multicultural education; (7) intrapersonal intelligence, focusing on self-esteem, goal setting, thinking skills, emotional expression, and self-directed learning; (8) "Curriculum Development through the Multiple Intelligences," focuses on lesson planning, apprenticeships, and teaching for understanding and (9) assessment that enhances learning.
