Multiple Intelligences

An Introduction to the 
Multiple Intelligences Theory of Learning

So, we’re not all Einsteins or Shakespeares. Does that mean we’re all stupid? No, of course not! After all, if Einstein’s IQ were measured by his ability to write sonnets, he would not be considered intelligent. Likewise, if Shakespeare were to be tested on the theory of relativity, he would fail. This improbable idea just goes to show that many ways exist to be smart. 

Since homeschooling is all about individualization, learning about multiple intelligences will enable further personalization of the learning process. Children will thrive in a learning environment that’s tailored specifically to them.  

For community college professors, being able to utilize many different methods of teaching the same material will help many students, especially those who do not learn well using traditional methods.
