Multiple Intelligences http://www.edutopia.org/multiple-intelligences-learning-styles-quiz Howard Gardner -1983. What's Your Learning Style? Musical intelligence includes skills in producing and understanding pitch, rhythm, and tones, as well as understanding patterns in sound. A person with high musical intelligence would be able to compose and perform music, and thus is particularly suited for a career as a musician, composer, or conductor. According to Howard Gardner musical intelligence runs in an almost structural parallel to linguistic intelligence. Multiple Intelligences Thrive in Smartville Multiple Intelligences Leave No Child Behind Logical-mathematical intelligence refers to the type of intelligence we most frequently associate with mathematics and science, such as a facility with numbers, skill in scientific investigation, and an emphasis on reasoning. In Howard Gardner's words, it entails the ability to detect patterns, reason deductively and think logically. Interpersonal intelligence refers to the ability to understand other people and their feelings, intentions, and motivations, and to work effectively with them. Careers that rely on interpersonal intelligence include education and politics, and a person with high interpersonal intelligence would learn best through group projects. Spatial intelligence is often associated with artists and designers. It includes the ability to visualize accurately and abstractly, and to navigate spatially. Artists, sculptors, and photographers, often have high spatial intelligence, and a student with high spacial intelligence would learn best through visual and artistic activities. Bodily-kinesthetic intelligence refers to the ability to control one's body movements and to handle objects skillfully, and to use one's body to solve problems. This intelligence also includes a strong sense of timing and the ability to train one's body. A person with high bodily-kinesthetic intelligence would learn best while active and moving, and a high level of bodily-kinesthetic intelligence is important for careers such as athletes, dancers, and actors. Linguistic intelligence refers to facility with words, both spoken and written, as well as the ability to learn languages. A person with a high level of linguistic intelligence would have the ability to express themselves effectively through language, and a sensitivity to linguistic subtleties, and would learn best through techniques such as reading, listening to lectures, and taking notes. Individuals with high linguistic intelligence would be suited to careers as writers, poets, or lawyers. Intrapersonal intelligence refers to the ability to introspect and understand ones own feelings, intentions and motivations. In Howard Gardner's view it involves having an effective working model of ourselves, and to be able to use such information to regulate our lives. Psychologists and philosophers rely on intrapersonal intelligence. Naturalist intelligence refers to an ability to recognize and categorize natural phenomena and to to interact with ones environment. Naturalist intelligence includes an understanding of and appreciation for the natural world, and is associated with careers such as farming and biology. Whole person learning, also known as holistic education, is based on an educational premise that "each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to spiritual values." Additionally each person has the potential for understanding their own intelligences and for changing them. What is Whole Person Learning? WPL sees the human being as existing in a network of relationships, interconnecting arrangements and interdependent systems. We are born incomplete and unfinished. The human individual is unique and unrepeatable. The way we learn and discover the world around is also unique so it is the teacher's role to provide appropriate conditions and stimuli to facilitate the learning process. Intelligence
