Pathways of Learning: Teaching Students and Parents about Multiple Intelligences.
This book is concerned with reinventing the learning process from a multiple intelligences perspective and urges explicitly teaching students about multiple intelligences to further their metacognitive understanding. The multiple-intelligence-based curriculum is intended to interface with the regular academic curriculum. An introductory chapter describes four levels of intelligence and offers a model for teaching about multiple intelligences. Chapter 1 is for parents and offers an overview of the theory of multiple intelligences and a discussion of nurturing the full potential. The following four chapters provide five exercises for each of the four levels of intelligence: (1) tacit; (2) aware; (3) strategic; and (4) reflective. These mini-lessons are designed to teach students about their own multiple intelligences and are complete with reproducible blacklines that "spiral" the lessons for use with elementary, middle, and high school students. More than 120 academic extensions offer suggestions for applying the mini-lessons in the teaching and learning of academic concepts. The sixth chapter looks at the multiple intelligence school with sections on restructuring the curriculum, instruction, the learning process, and assessment. A concluding section considers what is needed to transform and restructure the school. An appendix provides inventory wheels for assessing multiple intelligence capacities. (Contains approximately 115 references.) (DB)
