For a EDPN 671 EDPN 671 Theory and Practice of Bilingual and Multicultural Education discussion board I wanted Touro University TESOL Candidates talk about multiple intelligences. “After reading and viewing the materials for this week, create a mindmap your own ideas and strategies using the framework of multiple intelligences. To think about when mapping: Where do you think you fall within the scheme of multiple intelligences? How can understanding these concepts improve your own teaching? How do these concepts apply to ELLs?Ensure that you are creating a thoughtful, significant mindmap.” Below two meaningful, well-designed mindmaps submitted by Touro University TESOL Candidates

Understanding the theory of multiple intelligences can improve my teaching because I can use this theory to determine the best ways that my students can learn in my classroom. Each student has one kind of intelligence that they perform the best at, so I can use their strengths and weaknesses to guide my lessons. I can include particular types of intelligence to help my students stay engaged and succeed in the classroom. Individualizing lessons and including the theory of multiple intelligences to guide your teaching will lead to success. These concepts can apply to ELLs because not every ELL will learn the same way, it is good to include a variety of factors from multiple intelligences to understand how the student works best.
