Differentiated Instruction Through the Lens of Multiple Intelligences

Using Gardner's multiple intelligences as a guiding lens for differentiating instruction to students with varied learning profiles, we created a differentiated unit for a Middle School Chumash class learning the topic of Nazir (Numbers 6: 1-8). The instructional tools address the unique learning styles and intelligences of students in any subject.

Differentiated Instruction through the lens of Multiple Intelligences

Utilizing a unit study of Nazir, we have created differentiated models of instruction and assessment designed for individual learners included in Howard Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligences.

Many of the tools devised can be utilized across grade levels and subject matter. Additionally, the tiered methods enable an opportunity for individual reinforcement resulting in a comfort with the curriculum and a more confident and successful learner.
