The theory of multiple intelligences was developed by psychologist Howard Gardner, Professor of Education at Harvard University, in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. Gardner’s early work in psychology and later in human cognition led to the development of the initial seven intelligences. Today there are eight or nine intelligences and the possibility of others may eventually expand the list. Why eight or nine? For one simple reason, because that the ninth intelligence, meaning the Existential one, has been alluded to by Gardner, yet has never been fully confirmed, endorsed or described.
(McKenzie, 2005). Some multiple intelligences are used very much in core classes. Notwithstanding, students still can use the other multiple intelligences in all of their classes. God has given people many types of intelligences, and people can display their God-given intelligence
Schools could easily fix the problem of students choosing classes with friends in them by adding more than one teacher teaching that subject and by picking the students in each class randomly. Students also can be exposed to all of the basic classes such as Math,ELA,Science, and History in elementary school and then in middle school and highschool they choose their own
The middle school model uses various modes of instruction that benefit various of learners. The middle school model uses student centered approaches to learning. Inquiry learning and interactive learning are also emphasized in the middle school model. Differentiation is used to meet the needs of all unique learners. Cooperative learning, discussions, student inquires, and projects are used to meet the needs of auditory, visual, kinesthetic learners.
Introduction Many teachers are worried when faced with the task of teaching a multi-grade class-which refers to ‘the teaching of different Ages, Grades, and abilities,’ (Little, 1995). Due to the wide range of ages, abilities, maturity and interests in a multi-grade classroom, the teacher may not know how: organize the classroom, plan lessons, using the curriculum, create time table and lead or supervisor students of varying ages and abilities, at once. This can be extremely difficult, especially for a new teacher who has just being introduced to the principles of multi-grade teaching. However, with proper planning and organization multi-grade teaching can be very advantageous for both the students and the teacher. In this diverse classroom, there can be benefits of the older students assisting younger ones in group activities and otherwise; multiple intelligent is being catered for by the teacher and other students will be getting the experience; students may become better at independent learning and develop a greater sense of responsibility, these and
His research indicated that the people who often achieved the most in life were not the people who scored the highest on your standard IQ test, a fact which indicated that there was some failure in the way we measured intelligence or some intelligence that we were missing. This led him to posit the theory of seven different types of intelligences, all equal in value. These seven intelligences include: musical, logical-mathematical, kinesthetic, spatial, linguistic, interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence. Gardner believed that all kinds of intelligence should be developed as all are necessary and useful in different types of roles. Both authors took a different approach to autonomy in education, but both authors did believe that students who are given some autonomy in what they learn and how they learn flourish a little better.
Knowledge and information is something that all students are going to use if they know it or not. Students need to learn that all teachers teach differently and they have to adapt to their learning method. Now that classification of learning is explained; visual learning, auditory learning, kinesthetic learning and reading and writing learning, students are able to understand the way they learn best. Students can help work out study time and get better results without being worried or stressed out. Students will be able to have better self and
During early childhood, developing children uncover and explore the main sensory foundation of life. The five senses: smell, taste, sight, sound, and touch, form a group of five fundamental responses the mysterious human body can perform. As humans, these abilities come natural and as we grow, they amplify into an everlasting machine of sensations. The five senses fall victim as overlooked abilities. Constantly going unnoticed, unless of course, when missing.
Therefore, we can conclude by saying that the master’s intelligence goes hand and glove with that of students and together they make significant and empowering learning possible. According to (Gardner, 1983)there are much human common intelligences for example logical and linguistic intelligences. Gardner argued that the aim of schools should be to discover and encourage multiple intelligences of students. Ranciere (1991) emphasised the importance of the master’s intelligence. He explicates that at some point a child cannot understand without a master explaining to him.
As a result, the learners that are educated in these schools will be able to analyse and decipher their problems, and will succeed in society’s future authentic tasks: these intelligences, or competencies, associate with a person’s unique set of capabilities and talent, and produces a variety of ways for learners to demonstrate their intellectual abilities (people have different strengths, talents and intelligences) (Delgoshaei and Delavari, 2011:362; Thoresen, 2014). Furthermore, the teachers, working in these schools, will be encouraged to design an exceptional mixture of the different intelligences, and apply them to the curriculum and the assessment methods thereupon (Delgoshaei and Delavari, 2011:362). Firstly, the “Naturalist Intelligence” or “Nature Smart” selects the human ability to differentiate among living things
