‘It is an excellent resource not only for new teachers entering the profession but also for the more experienced to access a range of strategies in dealing with and recognizing children’s way of learning. It nurtures a Can Do attitude that celebrates success’ – Nurturing Potential The authors have written this book to provide teachers with a toolbox to help them know their students in an in-depth and personal way. With this knowledge, classrooms can celebrate the gifts of every student. It is important for teachers to develop relationships with students and aid them in developing a sense of connectedness with a group. Traditional IQ tests measure language and mathematical abilities, but empirical studies designed by multiple intelligence pioneer Howard Gardner identify other ways in which people are intelligent. Gardner identifies eight intelligences: verbal//linguistic, mathematical//logical, visual//spatial, musical//rhythmic, bodily//kinesthetic, naturalist, interpersonal, and intrapersonal. By using strategies that foster these intelligences, teachers can help students recognize their innate strengths and talents, and how they learn best. The authors offer more than a dozen activities specifically tailored to each of the eight multiple intelligences, for a total of 174 classroom activities in all. These activities will serve as a guide for teachers who know the value of using Gardner’s “intelligences” as teaching and learning strategies in the classroom.
