Body Kinesthetic: an individual’s ability to move an object skillfully and the coordination to move their body. Musical: an individual’s interpretation of tone and pitch including the understanding of rhythm and harmony. Visual/Spatial: an individual’s ability to judge distance as well as their ability regarding high order thinking such as understanding mazes and maps. Intrapersonal: an individual’s understanding of one’s self such as controlling their thoughts which can be further specified into strengths and weaknesses. Advantages/strengths of Howard Gardner’s theory: 1.
Creationism is not a science. Creationists refute the theory of evolution because they believe that all things were created by a Creator. This means they do not believe that things have gradually evolved and developed over time. Their argument is based on two aspects. In popular usage, a theory is a well-supported explanation that was acquired through significant scientific testing that was confirmed through observation and experimentation.
Another significance difference includes the different perspectives on whether intelligence is nature or nurture. Proponents of general intelligence conceive intelligence as an innate trait. In contrast, MI theory perceive of intelligence as a combination of inborn potentials and skills that can be cultivated in various manners through experiences (Davis et al., 2011). In order words, Spearman considers intelligence to be natural while Gardner views that intelligence can be
Speech-language pathologists positively help in the development of multiple aspects of communication, including morphology, phonology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. There are different approaches a speech-language pathologist (SLP) can take to achieve better development of these aspects of communication. Speech-language pathologists use both standardized and non-standardized methods to assess the various components of language. Those include form, content, and use, as well as the essential features of speech such as articulation, voice, and fluency (Wankoff, 2011). SLPs have a wide-ranging knowledge of phonology and morphology.
He implicitly rejects the conception of science that limits it to the study of impersonal, unguided, and purposeless forces” (R. Koons, n.d.). Kant does not see the design argument as an adversary or as hindering scientific progress, he sees the argument as a beginning and a guide to the scientific
Rene Descartes’ “Discourse on the Method” focuses on distinguishing the human rationale, apart from animals and robots. In which he does so by explaining how neither animals, nor machines lack the same mental capabilities as a human. For Descartes distinguishes the human rationale apart from non-humans, even though he does agree the two closely resemble each other because of their sense organs, and physical function (Descartes, 22). However, it is because the mechanical lacks a sufficient aspect of the mind that makes it necessary for them to be equal with humans. Throughout Descartes “Discourse on the Method,” he argues that the significant differences between humans and the mechanical is their limited ability to respond to the world from
Human’s fascination with intelligence and attempting to measure it is ancient, with intelligence tests being administered in China over four thousand years ago. (Kane and Brand, 2003). Spearman’s theory of general intelligence (g) is one of the few theories that has stood the test of time and been supported by subsequent researchers (Gottfredson, 2003). It suggests that intelligence is due to one general ability or function (g) which predicts success in school and life (Spearman, 1904). The more recent Theory of Multiple Intelligences (Gardner, 1983) completely opposes this, proposing over seven modalities of intelligence.
In the creativity tests that Guilford describes, fluency is tested by looking at how well a subject is able to respond to a certain context or task, while flexibility is tested by looking in how many different categories these responses fall. In his own work, Guilford distinguishes between two forms of flexibility: ‘spontaneous flexibility’, where the subject chooses himself to work in different categories, and ‘adaptive flexibility’ where a switch of category turns out to be necessary to fulfil a certain task (Guilford, 1962). Within a musical context, perhaps the most obvious form of flexibility is the ability to switch between musical genres. Each genre, then, asks for different kind of playing techniques, sounds, tempi,
(Gieger, goos & dole) (Scott)(Frankenstein). The person’s level of numeracy depends on the ability to confidently and appropriately apply mathematics through these dispositions. The use of tools including the materials and natural sciences (Gieger, goos
One common misconception about public education is that it is the only valid method of education in modern society. This is not true. There are a plethora of private and home education options available nationally. On average, homeschooled students receive considerably higher scores on standardized tests than public schooled students. While median scores for most standardized tests for public school students are around the fiftieth percentile, the median score of homeschoolers on the same standardized tests are in the eightieth percentile or higher, in all subjects.
