This text is based on original research from Harvard's Project Zero, the research and development group led by Howard Gardner, to show teachers and administrators how to successfully integrate Multiple Intelligence Theory into their schools and classrooms.

Based on a national investigation of more than 40 schools and on detailed case studies, this book illustrates how teachers in six real-life situations from different public schools were able to construct and implement curricula that enabled students to learn challenging disciplinary content using multiple intelligences. Written in a clear, practical style, this book highlights how educators everywhere can both integrate MI Theory and foster exceptional student work.


  • Foreword by the architect of Multiple Intelligence Theory, Howard Gardner, describes Project Zero and the impact this book can have on teaching.
  • Draws on information from more than 40 schools to identify six critical “Compass Point Practices” to effectively integrate MI to improve student achievement.
  • Illustrates these essential practices using 6 case studies that include:
    • A narrative of the school's experience
    • Sample lesson plans and activities
    • Tools and Resources for use in teaching
    • Teaching strategies
    • Frameworks for teacher evaluation in their classrooms
  • Describes ways to teach for in-depth student understanding and transfer.
  • Includes Gardner's full range of eight identified intelligences—including the naturalist intelligence.
