  1. Multiple Intelligences: 8 Ways of Teaching and Learning<br />By Russ Headley<br />Integrating Technology<br />
  2. What are Multiple Intelligences?<br />“The uniqueness and diversity of students tells us that students are not just smart in one or two ways but in many ways.”---Howard Gardner<br />As teachers, we should be aware of the 8 categories of Multiple Intelligences and adjust our teaching to accommodate these 8 categories, if possible<br />
  3. #1: Verbal/Linguistic<br />Students who enjoy reading, speaking and discussing, writing, language, visual learning<br />As a teacher, consider how you can use the spoken or written word to engage these students<br />Read books and novels, tell stories, discuss or debate, write essays, keep journals, learn vocabulary words, study etymology, etc.<br />
  4. #2: Logical/Mathematical<br />Students who enjoy math, numbers, logic<br />As a teacher, consider how you can use numbers, calculations, logic, classifications, or critical thinking to engage these students<br />Analyze data, apply information, decipher codes, list or organize facts, play pattern games, use graphic organizers, do calculations, use spreadsheets, etc.<br />
  5. #3: Visual/Spatial <br />Students who enjoy arts and crafts, drawing, painting, pictures, photography<br />As a teacher, consider how you can use visual aids, visualization, color, art, metaphor, or visual organizers<br />Create collages, montages, designs, illustrations, mobiles, posters, sculptures, puppets, paintings or drawings, films, maps, puzzles, mazes, page layout software, etc.<br />
  6. #4: Musical <br />Students who enjoy music, sound, rhythm, melody, singing, performance<br />As a teacher, consider how you can use music, singing, and sounds to engage learners<br />Create melodies, sounds, songs, jingles; perform individually or as a class or small group, evaluate music, use music software, interpret lyrics, listen to background music, play an instrument<br />
  7. #5: Bodily/Kinesthetic<br />Students who enjoy “hands-on” learning, body expression, fine motor skills, physical exercise<br />As a teacher, consider how you can involve the whole body and “hands-on” experiences to engage students<br />Consider acting out concepts, using movements and formations, doing without talking, pantomime, skits, charades, building models and projects, visiting places, assembling and disassembling things, playing sports, stretching, yoga, working out, etc.<br />
  8. #6: Naturalist<br />Students who love nature, observing, recording observations, and interacting with plant and animals<br />As a teacher, consider how you can incorporate nature in your classroom<br />Consider visiting a zoo, farm, aquarium, forest; take nature hikes or conduct class outside, record observation about nature, grow flowers, plant trees, devise classification systems, care for pets<br />
  9. #7: Interpersonal<br />Students who like to work with others, solve conflicts, organize others<br />As a teacher, consider how you can use debates, discussions, team activities, interviews, active listening, sharing, tutoring<br />Consider using collaborative learning, compromising, mediation, role-playing, solving problems as teams, planning events, motivating others, delegating tasks<br />
  10. #8: Intrapersonal<br />Students who are introspective, reflective, private, independent learners<br />As a teacher, consider action plans, setting goals, reflection and introspection, diaries and journals, silent reading, alternatives<br />Consider relating content to personal experiences, defending a position, examining feelings and memories, autobiographies, personal poetry, listing priorities<br />
  11. Conclusion<br />Consider these 8 Multiple Intelligences and how you might be able to use each of them to more effectively teach and engage your students.<br />Remember: “Variety is the spice of life,” and if you incorporate these 8 ideas, your teaching becomes more exciting, varied, and interesting!<br />Go to these links to test your own and your students’ multiple intelligences! http://www.berghuis.co.nz/abiator/lsi/mi_test.html<br />}http://www.jaconline.com.au/sosealive/home/mitest.swf<br />
