About the Book

In the decades since it was first introduced, Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences (MI) theory has transformed how people think about learning the world over. Educators using the theory have achieved  remarkable success in helping all students, including those who learn in nontraditional ways, to navigate school (and life outside it) with confidence and success.

Within the context of classroom instruction, no author besides Gardner has done more to popularize MI theory than Thomas Armstrong, whose best seller Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom has become a bona fide education classic in its own right. This expanded fourth edition provides educators at all levels with everything they need to apply MI theory to curriculum development, lesson planning, assessment, special education, cognitive skills, career development, educational policy, and more.

In addition to the many strategies, templates, and examples that have made Armstrong’s book so enduringly popular, this edition is updated to examine how emerging neurodiversity research, trends toward greater instructional personalization, and rapidly evolving virtual learning tools have affected the use of MI theory to enhance student achievement. It also includes brand-new lesson plans aligned to nationwide standards and a revised list of resources for further study.

''Thomas Armstrong was one of the first educators to write about [MI] theory. He has always stood out in my mind because of the accuracy of his accounts, the clarity of his prose, the broad range of his references, and the teacher-friendliness of his tone. . . this volume is a reliable and readable account of my work, directed particularly to teachers, administrators, and other educators. Armstrong has also added some nice touches of his own: the notion of a 'paralyzing experience,' to complement Joseph Walters' and my concept of a 'crystallizing experience,'; the suggestion to attend to the way that youngsters misbehave as a clue to their intelligences; some informal suggestions about how to involve youngsters in an examination of their own intelligences, and how to manage one's classroom in an MI way . . . I am pleased that he has had the opportunity to present these ideas to you . . .''
