Transcript of Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory

How Are You Smart? the capacity to think in music; to be able to hear patterns, recognize them, and perhaps manipulate them. People who have strong musical intelligence don't just remember music easily, they can't get it out of their minds, it's so omnipresent. Musical Intelligence: the capacity to use your whole body or parts of your body (your hands, your fingers, your arms) to solve a problem, make something, or put on some kind of production. The most evident examples are people in athletics or the performing arts, particularly dancing or acting. Kinesthetic Intelligence: the capacity to use language to express what's on your mind and to understand other people. Any kind of writer, orator, speaker, lawyer, or other person for whom language is an important stock in trade has great linguistic intelligence. Linguistic Intelligence: the ability to discriminate among living things (plants, animals) and sensitivity to other features of the natural world (clouds, rock configurations). This ability was clearly of value in our evolutionary past as hunters, gatherers, and farmers; it continues to be central in such roles as botanist or chef. Naturalist Intelligence: - Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligence "It's not how smart you are, but HOW YOU ARE SMART." the capacity to understand the underlying principles of some kind of causal system, the way a scientist or a logician does; or to manipulate numbers, quantities, and operations, the way a mathematician does. Logical/Mathematical Intelligence: Work Cited: Write a poem about the transition from summer to fall.
Read your poem out loud to the class. How many ways can you make $1.00 with 20 pennies, 10 nickels, 8 dimes and 3 quarters, ?
Create your own two-step word problem and have a friend solve. How many instruments can you hear in the song _______ ?
Compose your own song using the notes __, __, __, etc... Making the shapes of letters using your body.
Using you body to convey different emotions. Spacial Intelligence: the ability to represent the spatial world internally in your mind -- the way a sailor or airplane pilot navigates the large spatial world, or the way a chess player or sculptor represents a more circumscribed spatial world. Spatial intelligence can be used in the arts or in the sciences. Make a small town using LEGO'S.
Make a pattern using the colors in the tangrams. Hosting an overnight camping trip where the students will categorize plants and observe animals.
Starting a rock collection Intrapersonal Intelligence: having an understanding of yourself; knowing who you are, what you can do, what you want to do, how you react to things, which things to avoid, and which things to gravitate toward. We are drawn to people who have a good understanding of themselves. They tend to know what they can and can't do, and to know where to go if they need help. Think about something you have done to someone else. How do you think that affected them? Why do you think that?
Illustrate an emotion you have had. Think about why you chose to illustrate it the way you did. What triggered that emotion? Would that image change if you experienced the same emotion but with a different experience? Interpersonal Intelligence: the ability to understand other people. It's an ability we all need, but is especially important for teachers, clinicians, salespersons, or politicians -- anybody who deals with other people. Play the “what if” game with a friend (e.g. what if you were a crocodile? What if my teacher turned into a shoe? What if my house were made of cheese?). Write and illustrate your stories and share them with each other. What do these stories tell you about each other?
Think about some key historical figures and the decision they have made. Why do you think they acted that way? What would you have done in their place? Existential Intelligence: the ability and proclivity to pose (and ponder) questions about life, death, and ultimate realities. Host an open discussion where the students talk about the importance of the upcoming election and why ALL American's should vote.
Ask the student to complete a lesson evaluation. What did they like? What didn't they like? Why? How can I make it better? PBS. , & PBS (n.d.). Public broadcasting service.
