This study aims at exploring the effects of multiple intelligences activities versus traditional method on English writing development of the sixth grade students in Turkey. A quasi-experimental research method with a pre-test post-test design was applied. The participants were 50 sixth grade students at a state school in Ardahan in Turkey. The participants were divided as an experimental and a control group randomly. Experimental group was instructed through multiple intelligences activities while the control group was instructed through traditional method. In addition to pre-test and post-test scores, participants' reflections about the methods and their writing experiences during the study were considered in order to arrive at some implications. The findings suggest that the experimental group instructed through multiple intelligences activities showed more improvement from their pre-test to their post-test scores than the control group instructed through traditional method. Experimental group also outperformed the control group according to the post-test scores. In addition, the participants reflected on the multiple intelligences activities more positively than the traditional way of instruction.
