Book Description

“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.

More About the Author

I've been a writer and speaker for twenty-five years, focusing on the diversity of ways in which people learn and grow. I like to read (my favorite writer is Jorge Luis Borges), paint, meditate (I do mindfulness meditation), and play Scrabble (even though my wife usually beats me). I'm particularly excited about my new book (out in December 2012) Neurodiversity in the Classroom: Strength-Based Strategies to Help Students with Special Needs Achieve Success in School and Life It suggests that we think about brain diversity in the same way we think about biodiversity and cultural diversity. I used to work as a learning disability specialist and was disheartened by the negative labels we throw at children. I believe we need to honor and celebrate the uniqueness of each learner. My book Neurodiversity in the Classroom focuses on the strengths and abilities of students with mental health labels, including autism, dyslexia, ADHD, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and intellectual disabilities. It suggests seven practical steps that educators can take to enrich the school experiences of these kids. I hope that you buy Neurodiversity in the Classroom, and tell other people about it!

This book is a wonderful addition to my library.

If you answered that important question in the affirmative, then Thomas Armstrong's "Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom 2nd Edition" is a must read.

I have loaned my book to others and I'm sure I will re-read it again myself.

Format: Paperback
Did you know that a child who misbehaves in class is unconsciously telling you how he/she needs to approach learning? As a special education teacher and devotee of multiple intelligence theory, this book satisfied my thirst for knowledge on how to recognize and honor children for who they are, not simply who and what we want them to be. Armstrong covers MI theory not only in relation to learning academic subjects, but behavior, classroom management, and life in general. You will never look at education the same way!

Format: Paperback
Have you considered restructuring your 2000-2001 teaching program or, if you are a school administrator, your entire school program around Dr. Howard Earl Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI)? If you answered that important question in the affirmative, then Thomas Armstrong's "Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom 2nd Edition" is a must read.
In "Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom 2nd Edition", Armstrong reinforces Gardner's (1983) MI theory as a confirmed classroom application. This revised and expanded book encourages all types of teachers, be they special education teachers, regular classroom teachers, or teachers of students identified as intellectually exceptional, to show a more holistic view that validates students for who they truly are.
The 156 pages of this book outline innovative strategies for integrating an eighth intelligence, the naturalist, into a classroom/school program. Moreover, Armstrong presents new outlooks, including three potential predicaments, about the possibility of a ninth intelligence--the existential--the intelligence of concern with ultimate life issues and its potential.
Armstrong's insights for teaching and learning, recent case studies and research on the effective uses of MI theory represents a welcomed update to his initial 1994 book of the same title.
Armstrong is to be commended for his comprehensive comments on nurturing students' intelligence strengths. He suggests practical strategies for reducing or (even possibly) eliminating achievement gaps between all types of learners. Moreover, he provides (those busy) classroom teachers and school administrators with new insights for developing a MI learning environment. This 2000 revised book is a necessary read for all who are interested in MI forms of schooling.

Format: Paperback
I have been fascinated with the idea of multiple intelligences since I first learned of Howard Gardner's theory. Thomas Armstrong provides a review of the basics of that theory, but then takes it a step further. Armstrong provides countless examples of how each intelligence can be used in the classroom as well as how those intelligences can be assessed. Armstrong also provides ideas on what to include in a M.I. portfolio and how to assess each student's learning through their unique intellectual proclivities. Finally, Armstrong shows us how the traditional paradigm of special education can change and benefit from the application of M.I. theory. This book is well organized, an easy read, and one meant to be read again and again.

26 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Fritz R. Ward VINE VOICE on June 8, 2008
Format: Paperback
For years educators and psychologists presumed that one could "measure" intelligence by giving a test to students in an artificial setting, scoring their multiple choice responses against a norm, and then giving a numerical label to the child. The problem with this sort of assessment is that it has little to do with how intelligence is used in the real world, namely as a way of solving problems within a specific cultural setting. Enter Howard Gardner. In 1983 Gardner offered a new vision of intelligence which suggested that humans were hardwired with 7 separate intelligences, or modalities of problem solving. These were linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial reasoning, interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical and bodily-kinesthetic intelligence. He later concluded that naturalist intelligence, the ability to derive meaning from and relate concepts to the natural world, was an 8th form of intelligence. Each type of intelligence, Gardner argued, has value and can be used for problem solving. Many of us have gifts in one or more of these intelligences, but others are relatively weak or undeveloped.

Education professionals were among the first to see practical applications for Gardner's theory. In the first instance, it explained quite a bit. Little Johnny may not be able to read well, but he certainly has a knack for music. Incorporating musical elements into instruction can help little Johnny develop his own talents and also assist him in language arts. Similarly, the child figetting in the corner may well have real talent for bodily expression and could learn faster if these talents were incorporated into the classroom curriculum.

Reading Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom literally changed my life, by allowing me to recognize my learning strengths and then to embrace them. We all have different degrees of many intelligences, making us unique in our learning styles and abilities. If every educator could be required to read this book, I know it would at least begin to change the face of education in America. This book can change your life!
