Intelligence Builders for Every Student: 44 Exercises To Expand Multiple Intelligences in Your Classroom.
This book offers 44 activities for developing capacities of seven types of intelligence identified by Howard Gardner in his theory of multiple intelligences. The activities, grouped by the type of intelligence the activity primarily fosters, are intended for students to do on their own. The intelligences and sample activities are as follows: (1) bodily-kinesthetic intelligence (walking to expand your awareness, kinesthetic body awareness); (2) interpersonal intelligence (improving group processing skills, seeing yourself through others' eyes); (3) intrapersonal intelligence (concentrating the mind, metacognition); (4) logical-mathematical intelligence (problem solving, forcing relationships); (5) musical-rhythmic intelligence (exploring the musical-rhythmic motifs of your life, speaking musically); (6) verbal-linguistic intelligence (speaking what's on your mind, metalinguistic analysis); and (7) visual-spatial intelligence (eidetic images practices, visualization practices).
