Considering Moral Intelligence as Part of a Holistic Education
Clarken, Rodney H.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (Denver, CO, Apr 30-May 4, 2010)
Morality and moral intelligence are important in our society and schools. Moral intelligence is discussed in the context of Gardener's theory of multiple intelligences. Moral intelligence helps apply ethical principles to personal goals, values and actions. It consists of four competencies related to integrity, three to responsibility, two to forgiveness, and one to compassion. Developing greater moral intelligence will result in individuals, schools and other social systems that are more healthy and positive. Several conceptions of moral intelligence are considered along with ideas how education might look if it was to value and include morality more prominently.
