CULTURAL AND ETHNIC STUDIES 2 Cultural and ethnic studies Introduction Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences was developed by scientist known as Howard Gardner. This theory states that a person’s intelligence can be based on eight (or more) abilities. Each person has a different capacity for these abilities which ultimately determines their unique level of intelligence. The types of intelligence are Logical-Mathematical, Linguistic, Musical, Spatial, Bodily-Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal and Naturalist. Teachers who have studied the different intelligences are aware that their students have different strengths and weaknesses, and therefore, they must cater their instruction to meet the needs of the different learners. In addition, the theory has also influenced how corporations recruit and hire new employees, as well as how they solve problems between employees within their organizations. Gardner’s theory has ultimately taught us that people learn about and see the world differently. While this may cause some problems when personalities clash, these differences in intelligence mean that many viewpoints and talents are tapped to look at problems, create solutions, and in the end, make the world a more interesting and livable place whether that world be in the classroom, the boardroom, or in everyday situations (Howard, 2005 Types of intelligence Gardner has come up with 8 key intelligences: linguistic, logical-mathematical, musical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalist. He has also identified a ninth intelligence which he calls existential, or the ‘intelligence of big questions’ Following is an explanation of each of the theories that I have chosen Linguistic theory

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
