Schooling Built on the Multiple Intelligences
Kunkel, Christine D.
School Administrator, v66 n2 p24-25 Feb 2009
This article features a school built on multiple intelligences. As the first multiple intelligences school in the world, the Key Learning Community shapes its students' days to include significant time in the musical, spatial and bodily-kinesthetic intelligences, as well as the more traditional areas of logical-mathematical and linguistics. In middle and high school, students spend equal time in physical education, Spanish, social studies, music, art, math, English and science. It is this significant time with experts of each discipline that gives Key its unique structure and provides students with the opportunity to focus on their strengths, as well as improve areas in which they feel especially challenged.
