More About This Title The Intelligent Curriculum


This resource will help teachers integrate multiple intelligences (MI) into their existing curriculum to produce a much deeper understanding of concepts and a higher level of skill development. Students will be better prepared for life outside the classroom. By integrating MI into the curriculum, teachers will be helping students with key life and work skills needed to live productive lives in the 21st century. Four practical models are explored: "The Year-Long Curriculum Journey," "Unit Stretching," "MI Learning Centers," and "Schoolwide Focus." Each model contains full instructions and a blank template, an example of the model at elementary, middle, and high school levels, academic objectives and outcomes for each example at each level, an evaluation of strengths and weaknesses for each model, and an overview or commentary.
