Using a well-articulated framework, rich with graphic representations, Williams provides a comprehensive discussion of multiple intelligences. He moves the teacher and students from curiosity, to confidence, to competence in understanding and using the multiple intelligences theory in the most practical ways in curriculum, instruction and assessment.
