"The Theory of Multiple Intelligences"
How Multiple Intelligence helps learners?
"With an understanding of Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligences - teachers, school administrators, and parents can better understand the learners in their midst. They can allow students to safely explore and learn in many ways, and they can help students direct their own learning."

Multiple Intelligence Poem
A person’s true intelligence is difficult to find
Not calculated merely by retention in the mind
Intelligence is varied
Each deserves its special praise
And everyone is gifted-smart
But smart in different ways
They are all within us blend
The secret is, that every gift is ours to some extent.
The more ways we teach, the more children we reach
