Adapting Instruction to Multiple Intelligences
Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences
PreK—K , 1—2 , 3—5 , 6—8 , 9— In the early s, Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences took the educational world by storm. Educators had long dabbled in learning modalities — verbal, auditory, tactile, and kinesthetic methods for receiving information — and recognized that not all students learn the same way. The multiple intelligences go beyond learning modalities, as they deal with the way information is process and how learning occurs in individuals. In his research, Gardner identified a minimum of eight "intelligences," problem-solving and product-producing capabilities:.

In this manner, the scanner model which described the present situation was used. Also, SPSS software was used in the statistical analysis. Results demonstrate that naturalistic, interpersonal, and verbal intelligences predominated. To compare this with the present study, this study only focused more on the multiple intelligences.

Multiple Intelligences and Learning Styles: Two Complementary Dimensions
Many of us are familiar with three broad categories in which people learn: visual learning, auditory learning, and kinesthetic learning. Beyond these three categories, many theories of and approaches toward human learning potential have been established. Among them is the theory of multiple intelligences developed by Howard Gardner, Ph. Today there are nine intelligences, and the possibility of others may eventually expand the list. We teachers discover that sometimes our own mastery of a topic is tenuous, when a student asks us to convey the knowledge in another way and we are stumped.
Strengths and Limitations of a Learning-Style Model
What does it mean to express kinesthetic intelligence in an interpersonal way? Integrating styles and intelligences can help children learn in many ways—not just in the areas of their strengths. In the 20th century, two great theories have been put forward in an attempt to interpret human differences and to design educational models around these differences. Learning-style theory has its roots in the psychoanalytic community; multiple intelligences theory is the fruit of cognitive science and reflects an effort to rethink the theory of measurable intelligence embodied in intelligence testing. Both, in fact, combine insights from biology, anthropology, psychology, medical case studies, and an examination of art and culture. But learning styles emphasize the different ways people think and feel as they solve problems, create products, and interact.

DOI: Almost every teacher today has heard the terms multiple intelligences and learning styles. However, how many teachers know the definition of an intelligence and know the number of distinct intelligences? In addition, how many teachers could define what we mean by learning style and identify the distinct elements of learning styles? Some, perhaps, but not all, would know this.
