This outstanding resource offers an accurate reflection of Gardner's "Theory of Multiple Intelligences" and the knowledge to extend this theory to effective classroom practice. Broad-based and comprehensive, this book describes implications for pedagogy, team-teaching, student strengths, curriculum, assessment, community involvement, and diverse classroom models. The authors devote one chapter to each of the eight intelligences. They define intelligence, provide a checklist for identifying it, suggest environmental considerations, and offer related teaching strategies. Additional chapters survey Gardner's recent work on teaching for understanding, performance-based assessment, and model MI school programs and student outcomes.
