Multiple Intelligences: Myths and Messages.
International Schools Journal, v15 n2 p8-22 Apr 1996
Debunks several myths that have arisen in schools' misapplication of the author's multiple intelligences (MI) theory. Argues that seven intelligences do not require seven different intelligence tests. An intelligence is a construct, not a domain, discipline, or learning style. MI theory is empirical and compatible with general intelligence theory. It does not embrace any single set of values or teaching approach. (MLH)
