Transcript of The Teacher's Guide to Using Multiple Intelligences in a Science Classroom

The Teacher's Guide to Using Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom Reach Every Student Logical Intelligence Spacial Intelligence Kinesthetic intelligence Linguistic Intelligence These students are word + speech smart The Multiple Intelligence Theory There are many strategies involving the multiple intelligences that can be used in a Biology, Chemistry, or Physical Science classroom to engage every student. These students are math and number smart
They can grasp complex reasoning and equations These students are picture smart.

These students learn through body
movement Musical Intelligence These students think in terms of music
They respond well to rhythms and patterns Kelly Thorman
EDS 302 Final States that there are at least 8 different intelligences that people possess in order to learn Linguistic intelligence ("word smart")
Logical-mathematical intelligence ("number/reasoning smart")
Spatial intelligence ("picture smart")
Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence ("body smart")
Musical intelligence ("music smart")
Interpersonal intelligence ("people smart")
Intrapersonal intelligence ("self smart")
Naturalist intelligence ("nature smart") Many students are overwhelmed by the sciences and are often left behind and feeling as if they failed. example activities include:
Class discussions
Class debate on hot topic issue
Read + summarize an science article
Oral reports example activities include:
complete chemistry equations on the board
interpreting graphs and tables
organizing and interpreting data from experiments examples activities include:
Draw vocab words
create a 3D food web for board
use graphic organizers in notes
Teachers use visual clues such as demos Class Demonstrations can be fun!
Watch Steve Spangler show you! example activities include:
Role playing using students as segments of DNA to form a class chain
Utilize a cell model with removable parts
Put a skeleton together example activites include:
Introducing a topic with a song Interpersonal intelligence These students know how to to read and understand others well example activities include:
Students discuss ideas together
Some students take lead and teach other students
group work Intrapersonal intelligence These students understand themselves and their abilities example activities include:
Individual experiments Naturalist intelligence These students best understand nature example activities include:
take field trips to natural areas or a zoo
Use fall leaves for classification activities Teaching Multiple Intelligences Works Teaching according to multiple intelligences allows instructors to teach using many different strategies. This allows the teacher to reach every student, despite the fact they all learn differently.

It is proven by numerous studies (Kaya et al. 2007; Sulaiman et al. 2010) that teaching using the multiple intelligence theory excels over traditional instructional methods. References Alick , D.
