Multiple Intelligences: A Collectionby Robin Fogarty, James Bellanca, James Bellanca
In his groundbreaking theory on multiple intelligences, Howard Gardner states that "It's not how smart you are," but rather, "how you are smart." The impact of his theory has had major implications for schooling around the globe since it was first introduced in 1983. Despite common practices to evaluate intellectual ability in terms of IQ and standardized test scores, many educators are now embracing multiple intelligences theory and finding innovative ways to adapt it to the classroom. Editors Robin Fogarty and James Bellanca, nationally known education consultants, have consolidated much of the best research and writing available about multiple intelligences theory and practice into this informative, accessible resource. Divided into five concise sections, this book offers the novice a comprehensive, concise, and pragmatic picture of Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences (MI). For those already familiar with MI, it provides an in-depth look at the many facets of this theory, featuring a broad range of voices -- from the tower of academic research to the field of academic practice. Collected articles from top researchers and practitioners challenge the reader to rethink traditional interpretations of the word "intelligence." Special applications of MI, including its use in goal setting, assessment, and curriculum integration, are also covered. Educational psychologists, educators, school board members, community leaders, parents, parent organizations, and anyone interested in multiple intelligences theory. A Skylight Professional Book.
