Featuring a variety of viewpoints from the most prominent experts of our time in the fields of education, psychology, and neuroscience, MI at 25 addresses vital issues in the acceptance and implementation of Multiple Intelligences. Are there convincing arguments and evidence supporting the validity of the theory of M I? Is MI truly a scientific theory that will survive the test of time? What is the impact and contribution of MI theory to classroom practice, school design/reform, and the success of individual students? What are the cultural barriers to MI-inspired educational practices and research initiatives? This important book provides a much-needed corrective that balances and deepens our knowledge of MI, in contrast to the typical "pro" or "anti"-multiple intelligences rhetoric. Careful readers will come away with crucial information to help them improve their teaching practice, develop more effective curricula, and become lifelong learners.
