The Effects of Multiple Intelligence Teaching Strategies on Achievement in Reading and Mathematics
Harriman, Vanessa
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene College
Today's educators must use research-based teaching strategies that increase achievement levels of students. Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences is scientifically-based. The current model suggests eight different areas in which a person can demonstrate intelligence. This study compared reading and math assessments score of elementary students in classrooms using primarily traditional teaching strategies with classrooms using primarily multiple intelligence strategies mixed with traditional teaching strategies. Student assessment scores improved in both reading and math regardless of the chosen teaching strategy on most of the assessments. Some showed a significant difference but in favor of the classrooms using primarily traditional teaching strategies.
