Multiple Intelligences Learning.
In a learning system that puts much pressure on obtaining proficiency in
standards, how does one teach in the 8 or 9 learning domains as prescribed by
Dr. Howard Gardner? For a full discussion please see my article published by the
States Distance Learning Association. Simply put, one does not teach
appealing to the different learning domains; instead, students learn.
Thus we must allow student the ability to choose between a number of different learning activities to demonstrate their achievement and level of proficiency. Examples... see Romeo and Juliet, Brave New World and 1984, House on Mango Street, or Final Senior Reflection.
