Being smart is more than getting good grades in school. It’s more than reading well, solving math problems, memorizing facts, and having a high IQ. Psychologist Dr. Howard Gardner studied how kids and adults learn. He discovered many different ways people can be smart. You can be Music Smart. People Smart. Self Smart. Nature Smart. Life Smart. Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences has changed how teachers teach in schools around the world. Look inside to: • Learn about the nine different intelligences and what they mean • Find out which ones you have (Hint: You already have all nine, just in different degrees) • Make the most of your strongest intelligences • Strengthen your other intelligences • Use all nine intelligences at school, at home, and everywhere you go • Discover more about who you are and who you can be • Understand and get along better with the people around you • Look to the future and how you’ll use your smarts when you get older Quick quizzes help you identify the many ways you’re smart. Did You Know? boxes entertain you with fascinating facts. Easy-to-use lists give you lots of fun ways to build your smarts. Resources point you toward books, magazines, and websites where you can learn even more. Because it’s not about how smart you are, but how you are smart. Thomas Armstrong, PhD, is an award-winning author and speaker with 40 years of teaching experience and over 1 million copies of his books in print. He has authored 15 books, including Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom; written numerous articles for Parenting, Ladies’ Home Journal, Family Circle, and other periodicals; and appeared on several national and international television and radio programs, from NBC’s Today show to the BBC.

"To respect the many differences between people"--this is what Howard Gardner says is the purpose of learning about multiple intelligences (MI) theory, which holds that the human mind is composed of eight intelligences--linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic--plus a possible ninth (existential). This updated 3rd edition of Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom, Thomas Armstrong's bestselling practical guide for educators, includes two new chapters that address the worldwide reach of MI and rebut some common criticisms of the theory. This new edition includes updated information and resources throughout the text to help educators at all levels apply MI theory to curriculum development, lesson planning, assessment, special education, cognitive skills, educational technology, career development, educational policy, and more. The book includes dozens of practical tips, strategies, and examples from real schools and districts. Armstrong provides tools, resources, and ideas that educators can immediately use to help students of all ages achieve their fullest potential in life.
