We recently had a teacher write in on Facebook requesting resources about Gardner's multiple intelligences theory and the rival theories surrounding it. I came across this page: http://bit.ly/xp80Oy from ASCD that offers arguments and counterarguments in regards to the multiple intelligences theory.
Do you find Gardner's theory applicable to your students or your children? In my own experience, I have seen many students demonstrate different strengths throughout a variety of low-order and high-order thinking strategies. If not, is there another intelligence theory that you have found to be more representative in the classroom?
