EIGHT WAYS OF KNOWING
Tap the full intellectual potential of your students and
their learning soar!
What is this
Throughout our lives we have been given some very misleading
and frankly dangerous information about our intelligence and what
makes us smart. The IQ story provides a very narrow picture of our
full intellectual capacities.
This seminar provides an in-depth, research-based, experiential
understanding of multiple intelligence, A Different
Kind of Smart. It focuses on practical ways to implement the
multiple intelligences to transform the classroom and school into a
place of high-level creativity where students' full potentials are
How will I benefit?
Learn how to awaken, amplify, and teach with the Eight Kinds
of Smart. You can easily "trigger" the Eight Kinds of
Smart in yourself and your students and use them to
dramatically enhance your teaching:
• You'll be able to plan lessons which present content you're
teaching using multiple intelligence teaching and learning strategies.
• You'll know how to teach your students about their multiple
intelligences and how they can use them improve their performance in
• You'll learn a multiple intelligence lesson planning process
which will save you time and bring more creativity into your
You'll learn how to identify the intelligences in your students using
a variety of observation-based assessment instruments.
What will I learn?
The seminar provides a hands-on encounter with each of the eight
intelligences, demonstrating how to awaken them in the brain-mind-body
system, how to promote and nurture their full development, and how to
use each intelligence in the teaching and learning process.
Specifically you'll learn:
1. The Core Capacities of Each Intelligence.
Discover the foundational operations of the various ways of knowing in
the brain and how to integrate the teaching of intelligence capacities
into the existing curriculum.
2. The Developmental Pathway for the Eight
Intelligences. Analyze of the unique "taxonomy" for each
intelligence and developmentally appropriate practices for promoting
the growth of the full spectrum of intelligences in students.
3. The Neurological Process Involved in Each
intelligence. Learn how to stimulate or "trigger" the
different intelligences in the brain and what is involved to enhance,
amplify, and strengthen the various intellectual capabilities.
4. The Use of the Eight Intelligences to Teach Daily
Lessons. Experience a series of model lessons which
demonstrate practical techniques which help students use all eight
intelligences to deepen and enhance their understanding.
The workshop uses a
variety of teaching techniques: formal presentations summarize
contemporary research findings on human intelligence and the brain,
experiential exercises give participants practical experiences of
their own eight intelligences and ideas on how to introduce the
different ways of knowing to students, model lessons show how
to use multiple intelligences in the teaching of daily classroom
lessons; and, group discussions provide opportunities for
integration, interchange, and personal reflection.
