MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES AND LANGUAGE LEARNING
Multiply your ways of using multiple intelligences in language teaching with this cutting–edge guidebook from the renowned language teacher and workshop presenter, Mary Ann Christison. The ultimate “how–to” for translating the theory of multiple intelligences (MI theory) into classroom practice, this resource introduces Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences (MI), suggests steps for teachers in applying MI theory, provides useful MI inventories for language learners and teachers, and discusses issues related to testing and assessment. It then devotes a chapter of activities to each one of the multiple intelligences—linguistic, logical/mathematical, visual/spatial, bodily/kinesthetic, the personal intelligences, musical, and the naturalistic intelligence. The activities are sorted by age and language level (kindergarten through adult, beginning through advanced), plus there is a subject index to help you find the right activities to complement the content you are teaching. In addition, there are tons of suggestions for lesson planning and curriculum development––all structured around the MI theory.
