Chalk Talk: Multiple Intelligences
Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory rests on the premise that people are intelligent in different areas and there is not necessarily just one way to measure this idea of intelligence. People high in verbal/linguistic intelligence may enjoy reading and writing, and often have the ability to explain things well. Logically inclined people thinking more abstractly and conceptually rather than concretely. Mathematically inclined learners like experiments, solving puzzles, working with numbers, and math formulas. Auditory learners are good at oral exams and like to learn through lectures, discussion, and reading aloud. People with musical intelligence love music and are often gifted with musical talents as well. Spiritual and naturalist intelligences were later added to the theory.
