Unformatted text preview: Moodle Question #3 Summary I like Cattells theory of intelligence . It shows that no matter if a student lacks in either the biological or environmental area , they all have the same ability to reach some intelligence because the nurture component (crystallized intelligence) never stops. Though the multiple intelligence theory is good at delving into specific areas that a child might excel at, some of these areas arent really helpful to a teacher . Sternbergs model has a few flaws. First off it is majorly biased towards Western cultures . Secondly, it is relies too heavily on prior experiences , which can differ drastically from person to person. (Rachel H.) I align most with Cattell's theory of fluid vs crystallized intelligence. I like that this theory considers both biological factors and experience . And I didn't choose Gardner's because it's so broad that they're pretty much saying anyone can be intelligent. You can be talented in all different aspects of life, but I don't think that necessarily makes you more intelligent . (Erin R.) Moodle Question #3 Summary Support of Gardner Another very important aspect of Gardners theory over the others is that it takes culture into account. Traditional theories are not flexible across different cultures.. . ( Theo T. ) As a future educator I would lean towards Gardners theory of multiple intelligences . His methods for determining intelligence can be easily put into practice because students tend to be more receptive to a wide range of learning pathways. I feel that the other ideas of intelligence are too limited and draw upon correlations, such as a childs ability to memorize and recall information, that do not necessarily indicate a childs intelligence . I also think multiple intelligences can be really practical in the classroom; Incorporating music, encouraging artwork, testing math skills, or usually computers might all be ways for me to facilitate Gardners theory. ( Kyle B. ) For the most part, I agree with Gardners theory because it is not based on how well a person does on a test . Rather he looks how people develop the necessary skills for life . It is a simple way of determining one's strenghs and weaknesses . (Katie M.)
