The concept of multiple intelligences is slowly making its way into classrooms around the world. An increasing number of teachers are incorporating different styles of learning into their curriculum in an effort to engage each individual student and help them discover their unique strengths.
While some students find it easy to remain focused on their classwork throughout the day, others may become restless when seated in school chairs for hours on end. By identifying the different intelligences within a class, teachers are better able to create lessons and schedules to suit all of their students’ needs.
The Birmingham Grid for Learning offers a quick multiple intelligences test that is appropriate for all ages. At the beginning of each school year, teachers should consider having their students take such a quiz, and keep a record of each child’s results.
Try the quiz yourself- what are your unique strengths?
