The paper discusses Howard Gardner's multiple intelligence theory with its eight levels of intelligence and shows how it supports the abilities of people who may not be capable in the traditional intelligence areas of math and vocal skills. The paper notes the opposition to the theory but is of the opinion that this theory can provide a strong basis for educational reform that will provide positive changes to education and the future learning of all students.
From the Paper:"The Theory of Multiple Intelligences was developed by Gardner in 1983 and it opposes the notion that people can only be intelligent in relation to math or language skills (Weiten, 2005, p. 250). Gardner believes that each individual is prone to learn from his or her own perspective and can demonstrate different intelligence than is traditionally considered by educators (Weiten, 2005, p. 250). Yet, there are those that cast aside Gardner's theory because they conclude that additional intelligences cannot be measured and that without the potential for measurement intelligence cannot be proven (Weiten, 2005, p. 250)."
