Learning Styles and The Multiple Intelligences
Multiple Intelligence (MI) Theory, developed by educational psychologist Dr. Howard Gardner, recognizes that intelligence can come in many forms. MI Theory extends our conventional notions of the gifted child by outlining seven kinds of intelligence in any (one or more) of which a child may excel: linguistic, musical, logical/mathematical, visual/spatial, bodily/kinesthetic, intrapersonal and interpersonal. Gardner added an eighth one to his list called Naturalistic Intelligence: an ability to recognize plants, animals, and other parts of natural environment such as rocks, trees, flowers, clouds. And a ninth, Existential Intelligence: to exhibit the proclivity to pose and ponder questions about life, death and ultimate realities. (See the Multiple Intelligence Activity Chart)
