It's Not How Smart You Are, But How You're Smart!
Being smart is more than getting good grades or passing tests in school. It's more than reading well, solving math problems, memorizing facts, and having a high IQ. Psychologist Dr. Howard Gardner studied how kids and adults learn. He discovered many different ways people can be smart. You can be Music Smart, People Smart, Body Smart, Logic Smart, Word Smart, Self Smart, Picture Smart, Nature Smart, and Life Smart. Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences has changed how teachers teach in schools around the world. Now, kids can use the same approach to develop their own smarts!
