Howard Gardner's groundbreaking theory applied for classroom use

  • Offers a treasury of easily implemented activities for engaging all students' multiple intelligences, from the New City School, a leading elementary school at the forefront of MI education
  • Provides ready-to-use lesson plans that teachers can use to incorporate MI in any elementary classroom
  • Includes valuable essays on how and why to integrate MI in the classroom
  • Hoerr is the author of a bi-monthly column for Educational Leadership as well as the editor of the "Intelligence Connections" e-newsletter
