Integrating Curricula With Multiple Intelligences combines Gardner's nine multiple intelligences (verbal, logical, musical, visual, bodily, interpersonal, intrapersonal, naturalist, and existentialist) with Fogarty's ten curriculum integration models (fragmented, connected, nested, sequenced, shared, webbed, threaded, integrated, immersed, and networked). The authors offer strategies for building teams and professional learning communities, exploring how to put power into themes, and ways to thread life skills through the subject matter content. This unique and practical book includes cooperative structures for interactive lessons, strategies for developing relevant integrated units, ideas for webbing themes to the intelligences, methods that infuse rigor into thematic units, and much more.

Editorial Reviews

Howard Gardner
"The authors are sensitive to the constraints that operate on teachers even as they are open to ways in which teachers can refashion their classes and curricula to reach more children in more effective ways. This book will help teachers to enliven and enrich their classrooms and to forge new connections across concepts and curricula. "
Arthur L. Costa
"Teachers are held accountable for designing instruction and assessing standards-based outcomes. They are also asked to teach for retention, cooperative learning, and individual differences. This book provides a wealth of delightful, creative, and compelling strategies andlessons, with techniques for integrating these diverse objectives."
