students We carried a subtle introduction to Multiple Intelligence (MI) in our first article (November 2010) in the series on MI in the primary classroom. This month we explore some basic ways in which an MI classroom comes alive. From the next issue onwards we will explore each of the eight intelligences separately.

Recollect that we are working on three MI based insights:

  1. Learning can happen in eight different ways (MIs)
  2. Each child benefits from a varied exposure (of all 8 intelligences)
  3. Since each child has a different balance of these eight intelligences, let’s accept and celebrate each child for his or her strong intelligence.
