Multiple Intelligences Newsletter, Vol 29, No 8

June 13, 2020

Hello to MI Friends, We are experiencing two pandemics. COVID-19 has changed our lives for months, inhibiting our actions and causing illness and death. And now a racial pandemic engulfs us. The Coronavirus is a relatively new phenomenon; it has been around less than a year and has spread exponentially for months. The racial virus, “a harmful or corrupting agency,” is even more pernicious. Racism in this country goes back […]

Hi MI Friends, Years ago, Pat Bolanos, the visionary principal of the Key School in Indianapolis, the first MI school, and I were on a panel, discussing MI implementation. In her opening remarks, she stated that they arranged their school schedule so that each intelligence received an equal number of instructional minutes during the school day. I expressed admiration because I knew how difficult this would be to do and […]

Hi MI Friends, These are strange and scary times. Covid-19 continues to take its toll in actual lives and in the emotional distress and angst that we all share. As in any crisis – fortunately, as in every crisis – some people and roles step forward as heroes, even though they neither sought fame nor are comfortable with our praise. Gratitude and admiration go to everyone working in health care, […]

Greetings MI Fans, Are you ready for spring? Soon, schools in the northern hemisphere will have to confront the February Doldrums. Winter break was ages ago, spring break is too far away to contemplate, the weather is cold, and the skies are gray. Is it any wonder that students – and staff members – get a bit restless? Well, one strategy to de-doldrum (sorry!) is to ensure that people of […]

Hello to MI Fans! This issue features an article by Pam Clark, a Resource Teacher for the Gifted and an Instructional Coach in VA, who has been using MI for almost 30 years.

Greetings, MI Fans! From an educational perspective, using MI simply means recognizing and capitalizing on how students learn. Who could argue with that logic?!? Well, the short-answer is quite a few people. Folks who don’t accept MI either don’t understand it or reject the idea because it doesn’t comport with their narrow and rather simplistic view of the world. Simply looking around and seeing who succeeds makes the case for […]

Happy New School Year! Hi MI Fans, It’s the time of year when schools are embedded in enthusiasm. Everywhere (at least in the Northern hemisphere!), teachers, principals, and students are anticipating the start of another school year. Remember, educators, the kids are as nervous about day #1 as are you! Thinking about the role that MI can play in how classrooms are presented and how the year begins can start […]

Greetings MI Fans! We typically think of MI as a tool to help preschool and K-12 students learn, and that makes a lot of sense. What could be more logical than enabling students to learn through their intelligence-strengths? Yes, students need to master the 3 R’s, but capitalizing on their MI offers them more ways to learn. But the power of MI is just as valid with adults. Our MI […]

Greetings! I hope that your school year is going well and that you’re looking at students through all the facets of their intelligences potential. Having an MI perspective means recognizing that people learn differently and have different intelligence-strengths because of their MI Profile. The proof for MI is all around us. Simply look at how others learn and consider what learning approach works best for you. Some people learn linguistically […]

Welcome Readers, I hope that your 2019 has begun in a positive MI way. I hope that you are working to find ways for your kids to use all of their intelligences in learning. Regardless of your day job (or whether you even have a day job), I also hope that you are using the intelligences that give you flow. And, of course, I must ask if you are venturing […]
