Teaching in a Kaleidoscope
Multiple Intelligence Theory in the Classroom
Break into five groups.
We will assign your group's "style" of intelligence and hand out any necessary materials.
Each group will explain "Intelligence" through their given activity:
|Word Smart||Write a poem or short story||(Linguistic)|
|Music Smart||Write a song, rap, or use rhythm||(Musical)|
|Picture Smart||Illustrate "Intelligence"||(Spatial)|
|Logic Smart||Write a formula, design an experiment, or use analogies||(Logical/Mathematical)|
|Body Smart||Perform a skit or dance||(Bodily/Kinesthetic)|
Groups will present and then we will regroup as a class to discuss the presentations and the following:
What is Intelligence?
--Can it be Measured and, if so, How?
Is it Testable?
Pros and Cons of IQ Testing
Is Intelligence a Singular or Plural entity?
--Downsides to and problems with Multiple Intelligence Theory
Application in the classroom, feasible or no?
