What is the theory of multiple intelligences? The theory of multiple intelligences is Howard Gardner’s theory that proposes that people are not born with all of the intelligence they will ever have. It says that intelligence can be learned throughout life. Also, it claims that everyone is intelligent in at least seven different ways and can develop each aspect of intelligence to an average level of competency. Intelligence, as defined by Gardner, is the ability to solve problems or fashion products that are valuable in one or more cultural settings.
The 7 intelligences included in Gardner’s theory are: *Verbal/ Linguistic *Visual/ Spatial *Interpersonal *Musical/ Rhythmic *Logical/ Mathematical *Intrapersonal *Bodily/ Kinesthetic
There are 8 Criteria for Defining Multiple Intelligences: *Each of the intelligences can potentially be isolated by brain damage. *Each of the intelligences exists in exceptional people (savants or prodigies). *Each of the intelligences has a process of developing during normal child development and has a peak end-state performance. *Each of the intelligences is evidenced in species other than human beings. *Each of the intelligences has been tested using various measures not necessarily associated with intelligence. *Each of the intelligences can work without the others being present. *Each of the intelligences has a set of identifiable operations. *Each of the intelligences can be symbolized or has its own unique symbol or set of symbols.
The theory of multiple intelligences has encouraged the idea that a person is not born with all the intelligence they will ever possess. In the rest this slide show, each of the intelligences will be explained to give you a better understanding of Howard Gardner’s theory.
Gardner's Definition: Linguistic Intelligence(Word Smart) is the capacity to use language, your native language, and perhaps other languages, to express what's on your mind and to understand other people. • Criteria Used for Linguistic Intelligence • Can understand words and manipulate the structure of language • Has highly developed communication skills including writing, speaking, and story-telling • Knows and correctly uses rules of grammar • Enjoys reading, writing, and speaking • Has a large vocabulary • This person learns best by: • Saying, hearing, and seeing words • Writing • Talking • Reading ~*Linguistic Intelligence*~

Logical-Mathematical Intelligence Logical-mathematical intelligence is the capacity to use numbers effectively and reason well. Someone who has this kind of intelligence is able to see cause and effect really well; also, they are able to identify a problem and solve it right there on the spot. People with this intelligence think by reasoning, and they love experimenting, questioning, figuring out logical puzzles, and calculating.

What is spatial intelligence? Spatial intelligence is the brain’s ability to perceive and interpret visual stimuli. In other words, it’s how our minds process what we see. Although not very recognized, spatial intelligence is very important in the arts and in everyday life.
Why is spatial intelligence important? The way that we visually perceive and interpret the world around us is an important quality to have. In the arts, the ability to transfer a vision to a painting, sculpture, or film is a key quality. Careers such as architecture, require a person to transfer a vision of a structure into a blueprint. Spatial intelligence is even used by average people to remember small, but important facts; like how to travel from your school to your house. Everyone uses spatial intelligence in everyday life.

Interpersonal Intelligence Gardner's Definition: • Interpersonal intelligence, (people smart), is understanding other people. It’s an ability we all need, but is at a premium if you are a teacher, clinician, salesperson, or a politician. Anybody who deals with other people has to be skilled in the interpersonal sphere.
Interpersonally intelligent people enjoy: * Giving feedback to the teacher or to classmates • Understanding other's feelings • Person-to-person communication • Cooperative learning strategies • Receiving feedback • Group projects • Teaching someone else something new • Learning from someone outside of school • Other points of view • Creating group rules • Acting in a play or simulation • Conducting an interview • Creating "phone buddies" for homework • Sensing others’ motives • Creating group rules

Intrapersonal Intelligence “What is intrapersonal intelligence?” Intrapersonal intelligence is self-knowledge and the ability to act adaptively on the basis of that knowledge. This intelligence includes having an accurate picture of oneself (one’s strengths and weaknesses); awareness of inner moods, intentions, motivations, temperaments, and desires; and the capacity for self-discipline, self-understanding, and self-esteem. Essentially, it’s how well you know yourself.
