    2. 2. What is Multiple Intelligence (MI)? Every person has preferred ways to work, learn and understand Theory of multiple intelligences was developed in 1983 by Howard Gardner The average person has the potential for all intelligences to varying degrees Each intelligence can be measured individually, but most real-world applications consist of several intelligences at once
    3. 3. Why MI? A snapshot of the student’s intelligences at this point in time Uses a broader definition of intelligence that allows more individuals to find their strengths Traditional I.Q. tests measure only logical and linguistic intelligence Does not focus on a grade or score Validates what educators already know – not all students learn the same way Compatible with other methodologies and philosophies already in use  eg, whole language, cooperative learning, Montessori, etc.
