Can you think of times when you were teaching a lesson and you looked
out at "sea of blank faces" and you realized you weren't getting
through to your students, but you knew if you had the right set of
strategies you could reach them all?
This seminar is about reaching every student, every time. It deals
with the art of daily lesson planning from a multiple intelligences
standpoint. You'll work with actual up-coming lessons and learn how to
restructure both your teaching and students' learning so that many
more levels of knowing, understanding, and learning are tapped in and
through daily lessons.
How will I benefit?
Learn a proven process for incorporating the Eight Kinds of
Smart into lessons you're already teaching. You can quickly
take any lesson and turn into a "multimodal" learning experience for
• You'll get 80 intelligence-specific teaching and learning
strategies and learn how to use each one.
• You'll get a comprehensive set of lesson planning formats which will
help you streamline your own preparation process.
• You'll discover how to enhance your own intelligences in areas which
may not be as developed as others.
• You'll receive a toolbox of multiple intelligence-based technology
What will I learn?
The seminar provides eight full-blown model lessons and over 275
specific lesson ideas for teaching with the Eight Kinds of
Smart in history, language arts, mathematics, science,
social studies, P.E., and the practical arts.
1. The "Multiple Intelligences Toolbox". Learn how to use a
wide variety of multiple intelligence teaching and learning strategies

2. The "8-in-1" Approach to Lesson Planning. Plan

of lesson in the normal teaching cycle.
3. The "Intelligence-Focused" Approach to Lesson Planning.
Learn how to stage lessons which focus on one intelligence, plan
several up-coming lessons using this approach, and reflect on when to

personal and professional life and create a personal action plan for
more fully developing and integrating multiple intelligences into your
The format of this
workshop is a "practicum", and therefore, it is a "working session" in
which real lessons are designed, and real plans for the implementation
of teaching WITH multiple intelligences are created. Participants
become familiar with a variety of lesson planning and curriculum
design models which can help them make teaching WITH multiple
intelligences part of their regular teaching repertoire. During the
practicum, participants design four full-blown lessons which can be
