  • Reflection On Ms. Fogarty's First Class At Pine Meadow Elementary

    if the child got a signature from the parent saying that they read, you reward them by putting a sticker in their log book. The next day the child comes back with another story read and earns themselves another sticker for their book. Another example of this theory is that when the children complete all of the morning work assigned to them, and also pay attention to the daily sentence, sing the word song, and say the pledge of allegiance, they earn a skittle from the teacher. If they are not well behaved during this time, they are told to return to their desks without getting a skittle. The next day the kids work harder to be good and pay attention so that they may receive a reward. The next theorist I will be talking about is Howard Gardner. Gardner is known for his work on multiple intelligences. I’m going to be discussing three of his intelligences that I saw while working in a 1st grade classroom: linguistic, logical-mathematical, and interpersonal. An example of linguistic would be that the students are able to communicate with one another and also with the teacher. They are also able to explain to me what they may need help with on the morning work. Another intelligence I have witnessed is logical-mathematical. An example of this that I’ve seen in the classroom while volunteering is when the students are able to pull out information from a word problem and solve it. At this age students are able to read a math word problem pull the information out that they need to…

  • Reflective Essay: The Seven Learning Styles And Their Value

    counseling would be a perfect job. Ordinarily, social learners love team events, such as football or basketball. Furthermore, they prefer playing games that involve others. Last but not least, there are solitary learners. Solitary learners, just as the name implies, prefer to work alone in a solitary, quiet zone. They like self-help books, journaling, solving problems independently, even if it takes a long time, and like to make plans and set goals. When it comes to vacationing, the…

  • The Seven Components Of Interpersonal Intelligence

    comprises seven components, namely a musical, bodily-kinaesthetic, logical-mathematical, linguistic, spatial, interpersonal, and intrapersonal component. Gardner (1997:35) further refers to the traditional psychometric view of intelligence as outdated. He states that from multiple, converging lines there is evidence to propose that human beings have evolved as a species to possess at least seven distinct forms of intelligence - defined as the ability to solve problems or fashion products that…

  • Motivation In Pink's Hierarchy Of Needs

    Pink’s theory also relates to other motivation theories such as Abraham Maslow’s theory of “Hierarchy of Needs”. This “Hierarchy of Needs” is a pyramid broken up into eight levels. Maslow explains that to reach a certain level in the pyramid, all levels below it must be satisfied. If at any time a level becomes deficient, then “the individual will act to remove the deficiency”. Also, those eight levels are gathered together into three separate groupings. These three groupings show numerous…

  • Multiple Intelligences By Howard Gardner

    What makes a person smart? Are there only two ends of the spectrum, smart and dumb? Howard Gardner believed this was not the case with his theory of multiple intelligences. A theory developed that different students had different types of minds, so therefore they will learn, remember, perform, and understand knowledge in their own different way. Gardner theorized that there were seven different areas of skills that a person can have in different amounts. With this theory he “developed a theory…

  • Personal Narrative: Howard Gardner

    All my life I have gone around doing things how I view them correct. The thing is I have never really taken the time to actually think about what I am actually doing, why I am doing what I 'm doing, and even how I am doing what I am doing. Throughout our lives, we are constantly asked what we like and or what we are good at, we usually answer with something like “I don 't know” or with something we enjoy such as art or music. There is so much more to us than just one single word and is why…

  • Theories Of Interpersonal Intelligence

    Gardner (1983) suggests the existence of eight relatively autonomous, but interdependent, intelligences rather than just one single construct of intelligence. In Gardner's (1983) point of view, intelligence is a combination of different abilities; he defines intelligence as “the ability to solve problems or fashion products that are of consequence in a particular cultural setting or community” (Gardner 1993, p.15). Accordingly, he classified human intelligence into linguistic,…

  • Howard Gardner Multiple Intelligence Essay

    Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence The theory of multiple intelligences was developed in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner after he suggests or questions that the traditional notion and definition of intelligence, based on I.Q. testing, is far too limited. He found that people had many other gifts and talents that weren't necessarily reflected in the traditional ideals of intelligence. Instead, Dr. Gardner proposes eight different intelligences to account for a broader range of human potential in…

  • Child Centered Curriculum: Howards Gardner

    Gardner believed schools only focus on verbal/linguistic and logical/mathematical intelligences (p.161). I agree with this because American schools basically test math, science, and language skills on state tests such as the MAP test. It would be a completely different experience if mandated tests also collected scores in the fine arts categories, besides literature. I have taken Gardner’s multiple intelligences test in several of my college classes. These are always for fun and the teacher…
