Differentiation via Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences Martha López Coleman May 15, 2009 Anyway you want it - Journey
What is differentiation? • Simply put it’s choice for the students • According to Carol Ann Tomlinson (2005) differentiating instruction means students have multiple options for instruction and assessments but the same objectives.
Why use differentiation? • Students with choices are usually happier and work harder. • Teacher is busy facilitating but is working with smaller groups which allows for built- in remediation. • Because even you get tried of worksheets!
How do I do differentiate? • Tomlinson (2005) says you should start with one strategy. Get comfortable with one and then add more. • I say MI is the perfect jumping off point.
What are multiple intelligences? • Gardner (Campbell & Campbell, 1999) describes intelligence as “the ability to solve problems, to make culturally relevant contributions to one’s community and to identify new challenges to pursue.” • So according to the theory of MI, the mind’s problem solving abilities are multi- faceted. (Campbell & Campbell, 1999)
