Literacyworks has created a site that will help adult literacy teachers and tutors radically change their approach to teaching. Multiple Intelligences, a theory of education developed by Howard Gardner, posits that students process information in a variety of ways that have not been adequately addressed by established teaching methods. His theory is that if teachers tailor their methods to take advantage of students' strengths in different areas, student performance will improve drastically.
This site uses multimedia to illustrate these new approaches and show how engaging they can be. It also features a questionnaire that teachers and tutors can help learners complete to try to determine which intelligences they favor, which in turn can help teachers and tutors focus their instruction methods to address the unique needs of their learners.
