Description:

Elementary educators learn to recognize how students learn best--and adjust their lesson plans accordingly--with this handbook's Multiple Intelligence (MI)-based strategies. Starting with a diagnostic interview for each child that helps teachers develop the best instructional methods for their classrooms, this guide provides hundreds of specific teaching methods that strengthen each of the eight intelligences in any classroom situation. Case studies from actual strength-based assessments (one for each of the eight intelligences) outline examples for how these strategies can be applied at any grade level to improve such skills as reading, writing, spelling, math, note taking, and listening, as well as to minimize behavior problems. In this updated edition, 50 specific strength-based interventions that range from vocabulary retention and reading comprehension to self-discipline and task completion show how each of the eight intelligences can be utilized in the teaching of a single lesson. A selection of grade-specific content includes using MI theory to teach story writing, singing, and democracy.
