Theory of Multiple Intelligences by Howard Gardner

Children explore their learning style preferences through a variety of interactions, demonstrations and play.  The theory of Multiple Intelligences is the work product of Howard Gardner.  The theory of multiple intelligences frames the curriculum to validate the individual learners’ strengths.  Teachers are encouraged to design lesson plans by incorporating students’ learning styles, providing for the visual and auditory learners, and addressing the multiple intelligences in the class.

Children explore their learning style preferences through a variety of interactions, demonstrations and play.  The theory of Multiple Intelligences is the work product of Howard Gardner.  The theory of multiple intelligences frames the curriculum to validate the individual learners’ strengths.  Teachers are encouraged to design lesson plans by incorporating students’ learning styles, providing for the visual and auditory learners, and addressing the multiple intelligences in the class.  Effective teachers individualize their teaching as much as possible. Instead of “one size fits all,” teachers learn as much as you can about each student and teach each child in ways that they find comfortable and learn effectively.

Teachers use important materials in several ways, not just one source, for example stories, works of art, diagrams, and role play are utilized. In this way teachers can reach students who learn in different ways. Also, by presenting materials in various ways, it conveys what it means to understand something well. If you can only teach or learn in one way, your own understanding is likely to be one dimensional, flat and not as meaningful. Students learn best when teachers incorporate meaningful materials with engaging activities.

Gardner maintains that some intelligences are stronger than others, and the identifying factors can vary from individual to individual.  The goal of education is to help the child develop wholly. The eight intelligences Garner describes can improve with practice and can be enhanced over one’s lifetime. Each curricular theme addresses the eight intelligences: Linguistic, Logical, Mathematical, Spatial, Bodily-Kinesthetic, Naturalist, Interpersonal, and Intrapersonal.

RAIS uses the theory multiple intelligences and related classroom learning activities as the basis for planning and developing curriculum. 

RAIS deepens the curriculum and delivers instruction acknowledging the child learner is developing cognitive, physical, social and emotional skills.

RAIS curriculum provides instruction in all major subject areas organized to motivate the young learner through meaningful, relevant connections and experiences, thereby providing the critical foundation for future education. The children learn math, science, social studies, reading, music, and art. RAIS achieves these major subject learnings through thematic-based instruction.

Rosemont American International School in Hanoi (RAIS) offers an engaging early childhood and kindergarten curriculum addressing the wide range of different learning style preferences and intelligences, developmental domains and major subject areas.
