A new and informative video for classroom teachers on Multiple Intelligences (M.I.) featuring Dr. Howard Gardner, renowned author and lecturer. Joining Dr. Gardner are teachers and students of the Fuller Elementary School M.I. program in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Learn about M.I. theory, the seven intelligences, and observe first hand how teachers in the Fuller program have incorporated M.I. theory into their teaching, classrooms and community.

Indeed our shift is from how teachers should teach to an emphasis on how students can learn. No longer do we ask “How smart are our kids?” but “How Are Kids Smart?” A must for every classroom teacher struggling with the challenges of increasing diversity, inclusion of students with special needs and the move toward heterogeneous grouping.

A note to Special Educators: Observe a student with disabilities in an M.I. program and the parent's perspective
