Multiple Intelligences: The Multiple Intelligences theory argues that students will be better served by a broader vision of education, wherein teachers use different methodologies, exercises and activities to reach all students, not just those who excel at linguistic and logical intelligence (mainly reading and writing).
- Linguistic intelligence is the ability to use words and language in many different forms; to excite, please, convince, stimulate or convey information.
- Logical-Mathematical intelligence is the ability to explore patterns, categories and relationships by manipulating objects or symbols, and to experiment in a controlled, orderly way.
- Spatial intelligence is the ability to perceive and mentally manipulate a form or object, and to perceive and create tension, balance and composition in a visual or spatial display.
- Musical intelligence is the ability to hear non-verbal sounds in the environment such as rhythms, pitch and tonal patterns.
- Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence is the ability to use fine and gross motor skills in sports, the performing arts, or arts and crafts production. - Intrapersonal intelligence is the ability to gain access to and understand one’s inner feelings, dreams and ideas.
- Interpersonal intelligence is the ability to understand and get along with others.
- Naturalist intelligence is the ability to discriminate between one plant and another; between one animal and another; among varieties of clouds, rock formations, tidal configurations, and the like.
