  6. Works and Research • Multiple Intelligence • initially formulated a list of seven intelligences. The first two have been typically valued in schools; the next three are usually associated with the arts; and the final two are what Howard Gardner called 'personal intelligences' • Project Zero • Project Zero provided an environment in which Howard Gardner could begin to explore his interest in human cognition http://www.infed.org/thinkers/gardner.htm

  7. Works and ResearchMultiple Intelligence • Linguistic • Logical-Mathematical • Musical • Body-Kinesthetic • Spatial • Interpersonal • Intrapersonal http://www.infed.org/thinkers/gardner.htm http://questgarden.com/102/80/0/100505170056/index.htm

  8. Linguistic • Involves sensitivity to spoken and written language, the ability to learn languages, and the capacity to use language to accomplish certain goals • Writers, poets, lawyers and speakers are among those that see as having high linguistic intelligence. http://educ-reality.com/howard-gardners-multiple-intelligences/ http://www.infed.org/thinkers/gardner.htm

  9. Logical-Mathematical • Consists of the capacity to analyze problems logically, carry out mathematical operations, and investigate issues scientifically • It entails the ability to detect patterns, reason deductively and think logically http://ourlibrary.net/x50/math1.htm http://www.infed.org/thinkers/gardner.htm

  10. Musical • Involves skill in the performance, composition, and appreciation of musical patterns • Encompasses the capacity to recognize and compose musical pitches, tones, and rhythms http://www.infed.org/thinkers/gardner.htm http://www.preschools4all.com/musical-intelligence.html

  17.
