  4. 4. For learning to occur, focusing on the strengths and skills of the child gives the child motivation and opportunity to learn in the ways that the child learns BEST Children’s different strengths may influence how children make sense of the world.
  5. 5. There are several key points in the Multiple Intelligences theory that are worth mentioning. Some individuals possess higher levels of certain intelligences than others do but most importantly, most of us are highly intelligent in some, modestly intelligent in some and underdeveloped in the rest (Armstrong, 1994). every individual possesses all eight intelligences. Everyone has the capacity to learn or become better in a certain intelligence by instruction and encouragement (Armstrong, 1994). most people can develop each intelligence to a certain level of competency. intelligences usually work together in complex ways. They are always interacting with one another (Armstrong, 1994). there are many ways to be intelligent within each category. There is a great diversity of ways in which individuals can show us their intelligence within each intelligence (Armstrong, 1994).

  22. 22. One little known part of MI theory suggests that each of the intelligences has its own developmental trajectory through the life span. Music seems to develop earlier than any of the intelligences. We see five year olds performing and composing music (like Mozart). Music also stays robust until late in life. Eubie Blake, Igor Stravinsky, and Leopold Stokowski were all still musically active well into their eighties.
  23. 23. One little known part of MI theory suggests that each of the intelligences has its own developmental trajectory through the life span. We don’t see five-year-olds creating their own mathematical theorems. We DO see teenagers creating unique systems of mathematical thought. Blaise Pascal was sixteen when he came up with some ideas that are still used today by mathematicians. It seems that the most creative time for mathematicians is in adolescence and early adulthood. It’s been said that if a person hasn’t made an original contribution to math by the age of forty, he or she never will. Logical-mathematical intelligence doesn’t develop as early as music but develops pretty early in the lifespan

One little known part of MI theory suggests that each of the intelligences has its own developmental trajectory through the life span. bodily-kinesthetic intelligence like Olympic-level gymnast may be over the hill at the age of eighteen If you’re in midlife and want to reach high levels of accomplishment, then consider linguistic, interpersonal, or intrapersonal intelligences.
