Subject: Multiple Intelligence
I am really impressed with Dr. Gardener's theory on Multiple Intellegence. I teach 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. They are newly arrived from Albania, Bosnia, Palestine, and Puerto Rico. The ethnic makeup of the class is challenging enough during instuction. The study of Multiple Intellegence addresses the learning styles of all my kids. It gives each student the opportunity demonstrate their knowledge. I do project-based learning. The students might have the outcome but the process is their own. Dr. Gardener's theory has given me more ideas. Do you have any more?
