Multiple Intelligences


Not all children learn alike: Anyone who has ever taught children is aware of this. And yet all too often pedagogical programs are set up as if *****y student absorbed information in precisely the same way. However, those teaching strategies that incorporate the principle of "multiple intelligences" allow each student to learn the same material in d*****ferent ways. Some students will be best served by learning material visually, others interpersonally, still others will be ***** served when musical or aural elements are introduced into the classroom. This paper explores the concept ***** multiple intelligence especially as regards the integration of an arts-based education model throughout the entire curriculum.
