Definition of Multiple Intelligencs


This theory of human intelligence, developed by psychologist Howard Gardner and known as Gardners' Multiple Intelligences Theory, suggests there are at least seven ways that people have of perceiving and understanding the world. Gardner labels each of these ways a distinct "intelligence"--in other words, a set of skills allowing individuals to find and resolve genuine problems they face.

Gardner defines an "intelligence" as a group of abilities that:

  • Is somewhat autonomous from other human capacities; Has a core set of information-processing operations; Has a distinct history in the stages of development we each pass through;
  • Has plausible roots in evolutionary history.

How Multiple Intelligences Impact Learning

Curriculum--Traditional schooling heavily favors the verbal-linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligences. Gardner suggests a more balanced curriculum that incorporates the arts, self-awareness, communication, and physical education.

Instruction -- Gardner advocates instructional methods that appeal to all the intelligences, including role playing, musical performance, cooperative learning, reflection, visualization, story telling, and so on. Assessment --This theory calls for assessment methods that take into account the diversity of intelligences, as well as self-assessment tools that help students understand their intelligences. While Gardner suggests his list of intelligences may not be exhaustive, he identifies the following seven:

  1. Verbal-Linguistic --The ability to use words and language
  2. Logical-Mathematical --The capacity for inductive and deductive thinking and reasoning, as well as the use of numbers and the recognition of abstract patterns Visual-Spatial --The ability to visualize objects and spatial dimensions, and create internal images and pictures Body-Kinesthetic --The wisdom of the body and the ability to control physical motion Musical-Rhythmic --The ability to recognize tonal patterns and sounds, as well as a sensitivity to rhythms and beats Interpersonal --The capacity for person-to-person communications and relationships
  3. Intrapersonal --The spiritual, inner states of being, self-reflection, and awareness

The following three books are of particular interest to those of you interested in the  psychological basis of the theory of Multiple Intelligences.

Frames of Mind - The Theory of Multiple Intelligences
Howard Gardner second edition 1993 (Fontana Press) 
£9.99 ($18.43)

‘Offers a cogent, multi-dimensional answer to the IQ testing fanatics… a real alternative to the blind empiricism of the IQ testers. How refreshing to see it justified in scholarly terms.’ Issac Asimov

‘When Frames of Mind was first published in 1984 it was acclaimed as ‘a most important contribution to cognitive psychology’. In it Howard Gardner demonstrates that there exist many human ‘intelligences’, common to all cultures – each with its own patterns of development and brain activity, and each different in kind from the others. These potentials include linguistic, musical, and logical/mathematical capacities, as well as spatial and bodily intelligences, and the ability to arrive at an emotional and mental sense of self and other people. Rather than reducing an individual’s potential to a single score on an IQ rest, it is the fostering and education of all these intelligences that should be our concern. Gardner’s controversial argument has resounding implications for the ways in which we think about intelligence and education.’ (Book cover)

Intelligence – Multiple Perspective
Howard Gardner, Mindy L. Kornhaber, Warren K. Wake 1996
Harcourt Brace College Publishers
£33.99 ($62.70)

In one volume we have surveyed the major approaches to intelligence that have evolved since the scientific study of intelligence began, a century ago.  We begin by considering conceptions of intelligence in different cultures and historical eras.  We then explore intelligence as it is usually conceived of – as a psychological and biological property of the individual. Next we present alternative concepts of intelligence.  Finally, we investigate intelligence as it plays out in broader contests, such as in the school and the workplace.(Preface)

This is an introductory textbook on intelligence – a good basis for further study.

Intelligence Reframed – Multiple Intelligence for the 21st Century
Howard Gardner 1999 (Basic Books) 
£12.99 ($23.93)

‘The Harvard psychologist who revolutionized our thinking about intelligence and creativity – the award-winning author of Frames of Mind and Creating Minds – now offers a brilliant state-of-the-art report on how the landmark theory of multiple intelligences is radically changing our understanding of education and human development.’ (Book cover)

‘Wherever Howard Gardner focuses his synthesising mind and cast erudition on any topic,
we can be sure that an exciting intellectual adventure is in store”
Mihaly Csikszemtmihalyi

These next two books are studies of  famous people and  how their intelligences were developed,  often from a very young age.  They are of interest to class teachers and those aspiring to leadership positions.

Extraordinary Minds
Howard Gardner 1997. (Phoenix)
A fascinating read for only £6.99 ($12.89) A short but wide-ranging study of the psychology of exceptional achievement’
Sunday Telegraph
‘It is humane, intelligent and full of interest’
Sunday Times

Learn more about the exceptional minds of people such as Mozart, Freud, Woolf and Ghandi, and apply some of what you learn to the students in your class, especially the potential leaders. The beginning and end of it are particular relevant to teachers and the motivation behind the lives of the four people are fascinating. A very good buy, which will not only help you foster strengths in the children you teach but also makes you look at what motivates you!

This book shows how different intelligences can be observed in children at a very young age. A must for teachers who want to note the particular talents of students in their classes.

Leading Minds - an anatomy of leadership
Study Portraits of Great Leaders
Howard Gardner 1995 Harper Collins
£9.99 ($18.43)
Robert Maynard Hutchins; J. Robert Oppenheimer;  Margaret Thatcher; Martin Luther King;  Eleanor Roosevelt;  Pope John XXIII;  Mahatma Gandhi;  Margaret Mead;  Alfred P. Sloan;  Jean Monnet.

‘Whilst there have been many previous studies of leadership, Howard Gardner’s is the first to concentrate on the crucial component of leadership – the human mind. …..Drawing a distinction between direct and indirect leaders – the former, politicians, military men and business gurus who seek to exercise power and influence people, and the latter, scientists, novelists, painters who do so through the creation of symbolic products – Gardner reveals the key to leadership: the ability to create a story that affects the thoughts, feeling, and actions of other individuals.’ (Book cover)

Of particular interest to teachers with leadership responsibilities.

The next three books give practical advice as to how you too can achieve this success in your own school.

*The Intelligent School
Barbara MacGilchrist, Kate Myers and Jane Reed 2004 (Sage)
£19.99 ($36.88)

‘The Intelligent School offers a practical resource for schools to enable them to maximize their improvement efforts. In this fully revised edition, the authors set out the most recent messages from four inter-related areas of research:
School effectiveness
School improvement
Effective teaching
Effective learning

They illustrate, with practical example, ho
w these findings can be pieced together through the use of a combination of nine intelligences to improve teaching and learning and to strengthen a school’s capacity to achieve its goal successfully.

Some new intelligences are identified along with fresh thinking about intelligences and their dynamic relationship. Intelligent schooling in the future is also explored.’ (Book cover)

Multi Intelligences - the theory in Practice
Howard Gardner 1993 Basic Books
£18.50 ($34.16)

Howard Gardner’s brilliant conception of individual competence is changing the face of education today. In the ten years since the publication of his seminal Frames of Mind, thousands of educators, parents, and researchers have explored the practical implications of Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory – the powerful notion that there are separate human capacities, ranging from musical intelligence to the intelligence involved in understanding oneself. Multiple Intelligences: The Theory in Practice brings together previously published and original work by Gardner and his colleagues at Project Zero to provide a coherent pictures of what we have learned about the educational applications of MI theory from projects in schools and formal research over the last decade. (Book cover)

“Brilliantly connecting what must happen in the classroom
to what must happen in educational policy,
this is important reading not just for teachers,
but for school board members, legislators, and other policy makers.”

REXFORD G. BROWN, Senior Fellow, Education Commission of the States;

Multiple intelligences & student achievement success stories from six schools
Linda & Bruce Campbell 1999 Pub. ASCD
£7.00 ($12.91)

Through case studies of two elementary, two middle-level, and two high schools, Linda and Bruce Campbell illustrate why markedly different schools – large and small, rich and poor, inner-city and suburban – looked to MI when they wanted to boost student learning.' (Book Cover)

'Finally, a book about multiple intelligences (MI) theory that answers the questions that all educational innovations must ultimately address: “What are the results on student achievement?" “How were those results achieved?" '

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the website where selected books and videos on multiple-intelligences are available without you having to spend your valuable time searching for them. Join the hundreds who have received a free newsletter and subscribe to receive them regularly. I can help you to 'meet' others interested in and working on the same subject as yourself. I am in contact with teachers and professors in Algeria, Canada, India, Iran, Malta, Portugal, Qatar, South Africa, Spain and the USA who have visited this site.

No, I have not carried out a questionnaire on multiple intelligences, but I have carried out a multiple intelligences teacher survey, and find that many of you want to know more about:• Gardners inventory multiple intelligences;
classroom use & diagrams of Multiple Intelligence;
• multiple intelligences social studies activities, and
• preferred learning styles quiz ideas.
I am writing to you because I believe I can bring you answers. Garner believes that we all have multiple intelligences in some areas and not in others. I have found that pupils succeed best when taught through their strengths. Having been a class teacher, Headteacher (Principal) and School Inspector, I know the joy of seeing students succeed and how difficult it sometimes can be for teachers to provide for all the different pupils in their classes. On the positive side, as a classteacher, every child left my class able to read, in spite of some coming to me at the age of eleven without any reading skills. I would have considered I'd failed as a teacher, if I hadn't taught them this basic skill. However, you may find it hard to motivate some pupils and challenge the most able. Some pupils may be listless, others disruptive. Wrong food, poor clothing or lack of sleep may be some of the reasons for this, but have you asked yourself recently, 'what is my contribution to their lack of involvement?' and, 'what would interest and motivate them?' Have you identified their particular strengths or aptitudes? Do you feel that they are intelligent but not in the way people usually use the term? Have you asked the students how they think they learn best?

For example, Andrew, from the UK, wrote when he read this letter, "Wow!   Something that particularly caught my eye was: 'Do you know your different students’ best learning styles?' It reminded me of when, in my last year at my Secondary School, I was in a school show doing (among other things) my memory stunt; and one of the staff afterwards said, 'If we'd known that is how he remembers things, we might have taught him history better!' "

Let me show you how to understand their different learning styles and find out their interests, so that you can solve problems and provide a stimulating, challenging and happy classroom with achieving pupils led by a successful teacher. I was a highly successful class teacher, lucky enough to come from a teaching family and benefit from excellent initial teachers' training. Through being Froebel trained and having taught under a contrasting, very didactic, regime early on in my career, I believe I combined the best of both traditions as a teacher. I have always kept up to date with educational developments, through attending courses and through reading. I am now sharing some of this knowledge and success with you, and will do so in the future.As a teacher, either a relatively new one or a long-serving one, do you have students who are under-achieving? Your headteacher will be amazed at the motivation of your students and the results they are achieving when you put into practice what you learn from this letter. Did you know that there are books which show classroom use & diagrams of Multiple Intelligences? These books will clarify your own understanding of MI and help you plan lessons, giving you results you may never have had before. .Do you know your different students' best learning styles? Many of these books will help you to understand and identify learning styles, and show you how to incorporate multiple intelligences into your classroom planning? All the students will benefit from this and many could reach higher standards. The senior staff of your school and the students' parents will praise you, when they see your students so well motivated.

So you want well motivated and enthusiastic pupilsand a less stressful day for everyone, especially you?! With students succeeding, you will reduce the stress of teaching. Put some of these ideas into practice and you will then be able to provide classroom activities for multiple intelligences and use multiple intelligences task rotations to provide for pupils' different learning styles. I know you want to take responsibility for your own Professional Development and that you realise how important it is to keep refreshing yourself and improving your techniques. The fact you are reading this shows your enthusiasm for your work. Maybe you have been class teaching for a long time and are looking for a new way of achieving success for your students. As a teacher you will want to do the best for all the students you teach, I know I did. In your class there may be future naturalists, mathematicians, computer gurus, poets, religious leaders, carpenters, crafts persons, gardeners, weather forecasters and artists. You need to find what interests each one of them and what fires their imagination. Light that spark and your reward will be their success story! I believe that recent research can help you enormously in your quest for excellence. With increased knowledge and power at your finger tips, teaching will be a pleasure, your students will be highly motivated and their individual aptitudes developed to the full. You might even have a future Mozart, Freud, Woolf or Gandhi in your class! Read Extraordinary Minds by Howard Gardner, and look at Howard Gardner's other books which you can apply to your own class through classroom use and diagrams of Multiple Intelligence and preferred learning styles.

What will these books do for you?

Do you want to be more confident?

With these tools you will learn the secrets of how to be more confident in your approach and clearer about why you are doing what you do. They will increase your knowledge of the original research on multiple intelligences, and the theory behind present educational thinking. You will discover the reasons why you are doing what you are doing and be able to plan better and achieve more.

You have questions about reading, writing, exceptional children or leadership?

These books provide specific information on a cross section of topics: reading, writing, exceptional children and leadership. The books cover a range of interests, and different books will answer the different questions you are asking. With greater knowledge your job becomes easier. You might even have more time to follow up you own interests after school.

Are you sceptical about research and new ideas?

I know you want to be sure that the ideas work before you try using them on your own students/pupils. Once you have read these books to reassure yourself, and found out about any pitfalls to avoid, you will be able to decide for yourself. Much better than just being told. Many of the books are classroom focused and backed up by case studies. Of what benefit are these books to you? The power to know that you are doing the best for your pupils and that success is on the way for both them and you!

Do you aspire to leadership?

As a classroom teacher you probably already lead your teaching assistants. Read how others have succeeded in leadership before you, and where you fit in. Think of the people you will impress! You will be able to talk about all these famous people as if you knew them personally! But best of all you will be able to find your own style of leadership. Reach for the stars!

Quite simply, with this knowledge, your own teaching will improve, however long you have been teaching, the students in your care will benefit and you will open the door to their futures and your own too.

Whatever age you teach, these books will answer some of the problems you are posing.

Pre-school: You think you have a gifted 2½ year old in your class? Read the book ‘Extraordinary Minds’ to learn about expectations at different ages and how famous, exceptional people had their talents channelled.Kindergarten:You want to know more about ability groups. This is directly related to Multiple Intelligences - these are the books for you. Primary Elementary:You are worried about parents watching in your classroom. If you put into practice some of what you have learned from these books there will be no need to worry, as their children will be enthusiastic and well catered for - they will be amazed! You are also worried about the word 'differentiation'. It can mean many things. Clarify you thoughts with a clearer knowledge gained from reading these books. Upper Elementary: You are asking about cursive writing, this is one of the future newsletters featured below. You are bothered about snacks in class. Will your students really want these when they are fully motivated and well fed before the day begins? You want to know how to help a student to achieve. These books will help you target what it is that does just that. Watch the students enjoy their lessons and achieve well.Middle School:Some teachers hate Post Its. Find other ways of recording and of reminding yourself, in these books.High School:Detention always plays a large part in your work. Cut down on those detentions by providing for the different learning styles of your students and their multiple intelligences. They won't need detentions, as they will be so motivated that they will be a joy to teach and won't play you up!

Let me list some other benefits for you

You and your students will be winners. In these books you will find many practical ways of putting theory into practice in your own classroom. They could solve your problems as to how to motivate some pupils. Many of the books are easy to read, often offering practical advice to you as teachers in classrooms.

You will gain confidence and ammunition to counter any challenges to your way of teaching. By studying the results of high quality research from educational institutions in the US and UK, you are accessing current information, (three of these books were published in 2004) whilst underpinning your knowledge of this recent research with knowledge of previous research. (Howard Gardner 1983) You are also able to check success in stories of six schools. (Campbell 1999)

Ordering and delivery is quick and easy. A collection of books and videos, good for the classroom use can be bought as a set. Single books are also available, so no high street shopping is needed. You can order singly or in bulk direct through this website.

Once you have read these, you will want to receive regular up-to-date publications. More information about educational organisations, such as The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development is given in the MAW Education newsletters. Signing on for publications from an organization such as this, would keep you up to date at all times.

Just one thought before you make a choice, you probably want confirmation about my credentials as a teacher, rather than just take my word for it. Testimonials are on the About Us page.
