Multiple Intelligence Project 1.

Choose one of your top three intelligences (from the multiple intelligences inventory you took on the computer). Write your intelligence below: _________________________________________________________ 2. Choose a topic that you are interested in. Write it below. _________________________________________________________ 3. Your job is to present your topic to the class using one of your strongest intelligences. On the next two pages is information on each intelligence, including ways a person might be taught for each intelligence and tools you could use to teach your topic.

4. In your presentation, you must show/tell at least five facts about your topic with information to support each fact. Please list this information below:

Spatial - think in terms of physical space, as do architects and sailors. They are very aware of their environments. They like to draw, do jigsaw puzzles, read maps, and daydream. They can be taught through drawings, verbal imagery and physical imagery. Tools include models, graphics, charts, photographs, drawings, 3-D modeling, video, videoconferencing, television, multimedia, texts with pictures/charts/graphs. Body Movement-Kinesthetic - use the body effectively, like a dancer or a surgeon. They have a keen sense of body awareness. They like movement, making things, and touching. They communicate well through body language and can be taught through physical activity, hands-on learning, acting out, and role playing. Tools include equipment and real objects. Musical - show sensitivity to rhythm and sound. They love music, but they are also sensitive to sounds in their environments. They may study better with music in the background. They can be taught by turning lessons into lyrics, speaking rhythmically, and tapping out time. Tools include musical instruments, music, radio, stereo, CD-ROM, and multimedia. Social-Interpersonal - understanding, interacting with others. These students learn through interaction. They have many friends, empathy for others, and street smarts. They can be taught through group activities, seminars, and dialogues. Tools include the telephone, audio conferencing, time and attention from the instructor, video conferencing, writing, computer conferencing, and E-mail. Self-Intrapersonal - understanding one's own interests and goals. These learners tend to shy away from others. They're in tune with their inner feelings; they have wisdom, intuition and motivation, as well as a strong will, confidence and opinions. They can be taught through independent study and introspection. Tools include books, creative materials, diaries, privacy and time. They are the most independent of the learners. Language-Linguistic - using words effectively. These learners have highly developed auditory skills and often think in words. They like reading, playing word games, and making up poetry or stories. They can be taught by encouraging them to say and see words and by reading books together. Tools include computers, games, multimedia, books, tape recorders, and lecture. Logical -Mathematical - reasoning, calculating. They think conceptually, abstractly and are able to see and explore patterns and relationships. They like to experiment, solve puzzles, and ask cosmic questions. They can be taught through logic games, investigations, and mysteries. They need to learn and form concepts before they can deal with details. Nature-Naturalist - individuals who are high in this type of intelligence are more in tune with nature and are often interested in nurturing, exploring the environment and learning about other species. These individuals are said to be highly aware of even subtle changes to their environments. They can be taught through categorizing and cataloging information and exploring the outdoors. Careers which suit those with this intelligence include naturalists, farmers and gardeners.
