Description - Multiple Intelligences by Mindy L. Kornhaber
This text is based on original research from Harvard's Project Zero, the research and development group led by Howard Gardner, to show teachers and administrators how to successfully integrate Multiple Intelligence Theory into their schools and classrooms. Based on a national investigation of more than 40 schools and on detailed case studies, this book illustrates how teachers in six real-life situations from different public schools were able to construct and implement curricula that enabled students to learn challenging disciplinary content using multiple intelligences. Written in a clear, practical style, this book highlights how educators everywhere can both integrate MI Theory and foster exceptional student work.
