Learning Style: Are you number smart? Word smart? Music smart?

In 1983, Dr. Howard Gardner proposed a model for human intelligence that suggests that we learn in different ways and are intelligent in ways that cannot be assessed by standard IQ tests. This is called the theory of multiple intelligences. The eight intelligences he identifies are:

  • Linguistic intelligence (“word smart”)
  • Logical-mathematical intelligence (“number/reasoning smart”)
  • Spatial intelligence (“picture smart”)
  • Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence (“body smart”)
  • Musical intelligence (“music smart”)
  • Interpersonal intelligence (“people smart”)
  • Intrapersonal intelligence (“self smart”)
  • Naturalist intelligence (“nature smart”)
Gardner's theory argues that students do better when their teachers use different exercises and activities to reach all students, not just those who excel at linguistic and logical intelligence. So rather then teaching only through lecturing, teachers should find other ways to present the information. For example, teachers can use art based activities for students who are visually intelligent or discussions and writing assignments for those that are word smart.

Have you ever studied something and understood it right away? Have you experienced other times when no matter how hard you studied you still didn't get it? Maybe the way you were learning didn't fit your intelligence.

Do you know which intelligences you have? Here's a quiz you can take to find out! This will also help you figure out what teaching style is most beneficial to you. https://www.edutopia.org/multiple-intelligences-assessment

Hi everyone! My name is Shana and I'm very excited to be a part of Verbling. With my lessons, you can expect fun and professionalism. My lessons are catered to what your needs and wants are. My lessons are all unique, you will never get a cookie cutter lesson with me! I believe that students learn better when they are engaged and are learning based on their learning styles. To help you make the most out of your learning experience, we will decide together what kind of lesson is better for you! I can plan lessons that involve a lot of reading and writing, or we can have casual lessons where we just talk. The most important thing is that I want you to make mistakes! It's the best way to learn! A little about me! I'm 39 years old and I just finished my degree in elementary education. I lived in Japan for about six years where I taught English to children and adults. I love travelling and discovering the unique things that countries have to offer. I love cooking, baking and trying new recipes. I'm really excited to meet you and get started on our learning journey. If you have any questions about me or my lessons, please message!
