Exploring Multiple Intelligences: New Dimensions of Learning
http://www.multi-intell.com/
GRADE LEVEL: Professional

CONTENT:
Exploring Multiple Intelligences is a web site about Dr. Howard Gardner's revolutionary theory of eight different forms of intelligence and/or learning modes. The site has descriptions and lesson plans for each intelligence as well as articles, links, and a list of books and audio-visual resources.

AESTHETICS:
The site uses dynamic html and requires a browser such as Netscape 4.0+ or Internet Explorer 4.0+. The site is very colorful and features RealAudio clips.

ORGANIZATION:
The site has a comprehensive navigational frame on the left of most of the pages.

REVIEW:
This is a nice resource on Dr. Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligence (MI). The site is up-to-date and includes Dr. Gardner's most recent addition, the Naturalist Intelligence. Click on MI Overview for information about the different intelligences and practical activities to go along with each of them. At the bottom of each of these pages is a link to lesson planning ideas suited to that intelligence. The site also includes a list of articles on MI theory, and links to schools and school districts using MI-based teaching methods.
