Application of the Theory of Multiple Intelligences to Second Language Learners in Classroom Situations.
Poole, Gloria T.
This paper argues for the "nurture" side of the "nature versus nurture" debate of the nature of intelligence. It argues for the theory of multiple intelligences in relation to sociocultural and cognitive perspectives of second language learning. A brief historical overview of intelligence is presented, and classroom practices that lead to opportunities for successful learning experiences for limited English proficient students at the elementary school level are provided. Two appendices, "Informal Inventory of Multiple Intelligences" and "ESOL-Related Language and Content Area Needs across the Intelligences," are included. (Contains 35 references.) (KFT)
