Multiple Intelligence Theory

Dr. Howard Gardner, researcher and advocate of the Multiple Intelligence Theory, has proposed three ways that teachers can utilize his theory in the classroom:

  1. Cultivating desired capabilities and talents in our students
  2. Approaching a concept, subject matter, or discipline in a variety of ways
  3. Personalizing education as we take human differences seriously

What do you think Gardner means? What would these look like when implemented into the classroom and what kind of students would these strategies benefit?
