Multiple Intelligences: How People Can Be Smart in Different Ways

Rose Feinberg
Video Catch-up

Course Description

The idea that people can be smart in ways not reflected on IQ tests is based on the work of Dr. Howard Gardner, Harvard University professor and author of "Frames of Mind." His theory of Multiple Intelligences recognizes eight intelligences that can be demonstrated in different ways. These will be explained through examples of famous people, career applications, and leisure activities people with each intelligence often choose. Participants will make connections to their own lives, as well as to family members and friends. One goal is to expand how we recognize intelligence. Pictures and video clips will enhance this lecture and help you make connections.
