Multiple Intelligences: By Nicole Buckner

The theory of the seven multiple intelligences was something I appreciated gaining more insight on. They are: Visual-Spatial, Bodily-Kinesthetic, Musical, Interpersonal, Interpersonal, Linguistic, and Logical-Mathematical.

As a teacher, I think at first it might be overwhelming to try to identify all of our student’s learning styles. However, I think it is important to genuinely attempt to understand such a critical aspect of the kids and work to develop curriculum and educational activities that can incorporate all seven multiple intelligences. I believe this will also help students improve on their weaker areas of learning. Additionally, whereas the majority of learning places emphasis on linguistic and logical learning,

I think it is critical to encourage students to explore other intelligences, such as musical (the arts). We will better serve our students if we present a well-rounded curriculum that includes aspects from all learning styles!
