Teacher Perspectives: Multiple intelligence theory

Alice Chandler: I went to an Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development conference and Howard Gardner spoke there about his theories on multiple intelligences. It was something he said that just made it real for me. Gardner made it very plain that students have different methods of learning. We have some special education students. Because we use the multiple intelligence mode, they are able to use their strengths. I want [all students] to go with their strengths, understand their citizenship, and understand that there is a role for artists in the government community.
