Many of us are somewhat familiar with the idea of multiple intelligences. However, I wonder how many of us really understand the concept and implement related strategies in the classroom.
I thought it might be helpful to put together a short “The Best….” list that has two sections — the first has links to short online assessments that would be accessible to English Language Learners so they could learn about themselves (in addition to the teacher finding-out the same information), and the second containing a couple of links to additional teacher resources.
Here are my choices for The Best Resources For Learning About Multiple Intelligences:
The Birmingham Grid For Learning has the most accessible assessment because it provides audio support for the text.
Edutopia has a nice assessment titled What’ Your Learning Style?
Here’s an assessment from Multiple Intelligences For Adult Literacy & Education.
The Multiple Intelligences and Learning Styles site has a simple assessment tool. Scroll down a little and you’ll find it on the right side of your screen.
Edutopia has an excellent page called How to Address Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom.
The Learning Styles Tools page organized by Maryna Badenhorst has an incredible collection of resources on multiple intelligences. If you’re looking for it, then it’s there…
Other suggestions are always welcome.
If you found this post useful, you might want to look at previous “The Best…” lists and also consider subscribing to this blog for free.
Thanks for bringing attention to this very interesting topic Larry.
In addition to the article you mention, Edutopia has a complete package online on Multiple Intelligences/ Learning styles, which includes many articles, downloadable resources, documentaries, and a very popular quiz, “What’s your Learning Style?”
