Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges how we are educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence:
Intelligence ... [is] diverse. We think about the world in all the ways we experience it. We think visually, we think in sound, we think kinesthetically. We think in abstract terms, we think in movement...

Multiple intelligences
learning styles
Take this 24-question quiz from Edutopia to learn how your tastes and interests can influence how you take in information:
Children with strong linguistic intelligence have particular sensitivities to the sounds, structure, meaning, and function of words and language - These students focus more on the traditional aspects of learning and using a world language.
*Spanish may come easily to these students so they must be encouraged to expand their use of the language outside of class
Activities should allow students the opportunity to use the language and focus on reading, writing, speaking, and listening: Journaling, reading and telling stories, writing letters, role-plays, reading authentic articles, and oral conversations
Assessments must take into account the students' abilities to communicate and understand in the target language: traditional vocabulary and grammar quizzes, written essays, audio recordings, poetry writing, formal speech, cognitive debates, listening and reporting, and journals (Lange, 1999)

Activities & Assessments:
In learning a world language, teachers should utilize activities that make use of visual aids and graphic organizers to aid students who are visual/spatial learners (Lange, 1999). These could include activities such as:

- Illustrating stories to show comprehension
- creating conjugation charts to see the difference between various subjects
- labeling objects and at home and in the classroom with the word in Spanish
- making graphic organizers to keep track of conceptual information

In world languages the topics often cover global, social, and cultural issues that deal with ethics, morality, and religion. These discussions and debates offer students who are existential learners the opportunity to analyze and look at issues from a different perspective. (Sonrisas, 2014)

Activities & Assessments: Discussions & activities based on themes such as:
- Dia de los muertos/honoring the dead
- immigration reform
- Catholic imperialism
- the effect of culture on racism,
sexism, and discrimination

Activities & Assessments
In the general music classroom musically
intelligent students will thrive. It is
important to keep them engaged in musically
creative activities such as composition and improvisation.
Musically intelligent students also may be aided in other content areas by putting content into a song or rhythm to help them recall the information. Students may come up with a song for the months in a year, or rattle of 50 states in rhythm, congugate verbs to melody and or rhythm along with a number of other activities.

Expressing a piece of music through movement.
Demonstrate musical concepts such as high and low pitch, tempo, & time signatures through movement.
Choreographing a dance.

Activities & Assessments
In general music these students may do very well with certain concepts which give other students much difficulty such as music notation & music theory. For these students it is important to connect the "Math" to Music."

Composition exercises, notation exercises, intervals, twelve-tone music, chord progressions, will be exciting lessons for these students.
