55056448 pg.3 When most people think of intelligence, they think of it just as one whole characteristic of a person. However, according to Howard Gardner, psychological researcher at Harvard, intelligence can be broken up into eight distinct categories. Three categories that specifically stick out in Gardner’s breakdown of intelligence are the linguistic, bodily-kinesthetic, and interpersonal. These three aspects of intelligence are exceptionally relevant when looking at the documentary “Educating Peter”, the story of a child with Down syndrome who is integrated into a normal third grade classroom The first category of intelligence that will be looked at is linguistics. Linguistics is the “sensitivity to the sounds, rhythms, and meanings of words; sensitivity to the different functions of language” (Weiten, 2007). What this means is that linguistics is the way a person verbally communicates with other people, and also how a person expresses them self with written words.

    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.
