This book will help teachers design effective curriculum for their students with diverse learning abilities. The authors have created a guided process to apply MI theory to the elementary school classroom. The five “pathways” or approaches examined—Exploration, Bridging, Understanding, Authentic Problems, and Talent Development—represent the ways in which MI can be implemented and nurtured across the elementary grades. The Pathways Model promotes and supports the development of a well-grounded understanding of MI theory to inform goal-setting and planning for using multiple intelligences theory in the classroom. Each pathway addresses a different set of goals and provides appropriate guidelines and examples.

“Should help many educators become more effective practitioners.”
—From the Foreword by Howard Gardner

“No matter the grade level or content area, teachers can find something that resonates with their practice.”
Thomas R. Hoerr and M. Patricia Nuernberger, The New City School, St. Louis, Missouri

“My school has adapted portions for collaborative design as well as for an after-school program.”
David Hartnett, Principal, Eden Central School in Eden, Vermont
