Transcript of Assessing multiple intelligences

What Have We Done? What Should We Be Doing?
Intelligence is categorized into three overarching categories, those of which are formulated by the abilities. According to Gardner, intelligence is: 1) The ability to create an effective product or offer a service that is valued in a culture, 2) a set of skills that make it possible for a person to solve problems in life, and 3) the potential for finding or creating solutions for problems, which involves gathering new knowledge.
Formal Testing
--a necessary ingredient, this style of test prepares students for the rigor and discipline needed to succeed in standardized testing, such as the TOEFL or SAT. Students practice working through various types of questions that require assorted critical thinking skills.
Portfolio Review/Analysis
--using the principles rooted in meta-cognitive awareness, students examine their own thinking processes such as study skills, memory capabilities, and the ability to monitor learning. This concept needs to be explicitly taught along with content instruction. Metacognitive knowledge is about our own cognitive processes and our understanding of how to regulate those processes to maximize learning.
Summer Skills
--students create their own website to post pictures, video, and write a blog about their summer.

Summer Reading
--students read at least one full-length text to be discussed and evaluated during the first week of school.

students will have an opportunity to gain valuable real-world works skills with partners; graduation requirement?

This may take many forms, such as a museum exhibit, a demonstration lab, a TED talk, a one-act play, a poetry slam, a debate of historical figures, a short film of any genre, etc.. The Olympia Schools becomes a showcase of learning where all students present an expression of what they have learned . . . and why it is relevant. (school-wide)
--Project-based learning (
) is considered an alternative to paper-based, rote memorization, teacher-led classrooms. Successfully planned and implemented projects focus on
