You and your group (together) will come up with at least 3 concrete and creative things you will do in your classroom as a new teacher to meet the diverse needs of your students, based on the readings and online ideas/resources (which
should be cited!)

Looking into Gardener’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, there are a lot of great activities that can be implemented.
There are 8 Multiple Intelligences presented by Gardener:
1. Verbal-linguistic intelligence- strength in oral and written language
2. Logical-mathematical intelligence- works well with numbers and data, excellent problem-solving skills
3. Visual-Spatial intelligence- graphic information such as graphs
4. Musical intelligence- Can make meaning of sounds, patterns, rhythms
5. Naturalistic Intelligence- identifies with the outside world: plants, animals, nature
6. Bodily-kinesthetic intelligence- Learns by doing rather than seeing
7. Interpersonal intelligence- Can reflect on others’ moods and feelings with ease
8. Intrapersonal intelligence – Aware of own emotions
(Multiple Intelligences: What Does Research Say?, 2016)
Each intelligence has different ways that people process information (Multiple Intelligences: What Does Research Say?, 2016). These intelligences appear to come naturally, as opposed to learning styles that may work better than others. I
think at least one of our 3 activities should focus on multiple intelligences. Let me know what you think! We can pick one or two intelligences and create activities that students would benefit from having that specified intelligence.
Ex: Naturalistic- Nature scavenger hunt
