Arulselvi, Evangelin
Excellence in Education Journal, v7 n2 p101-121 Sum 2018
The purpose of this essay is to discuss Multiple Intelligences described and defined by Howard Gardner and other authors who followed and revised the theory in terms of language teaching. In the student-centered approach, individual students' needs, interests, and strengths make sense and every student has a different intellectual profile. Using a common curriculum for these students with different intellectual abilities is a significant challenge for teachers. Incorporating Multiple Intelligences in the classroom fills the needs and expectations. Multiple Intelligences have significant implications for educational performance and they change students' perceptions of intelligence and academic achievement in the learning world. This essay focuses to incorporating Multiple Intelligences in the English classroom and includes grouping and listing possible activities and tasks which are appropriate for language learners with different sets of abilities or intelligences.
